    The seeds of the relationships between Donald Trump and key figures in the Russian business and political worlds — now the subject of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation — were planted at least five months before Trump’s now famous 2013 trip to Moscow, during a previously unreported visit to a raunchy Las Vegas nightclub with the son of a prominent oligarch and Putin ally, according to a new book about Trump and his Russian ties. The book is excerpted today in Yahoo News and Mother Jones magazine.

    ... But Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the top Democrat on the panel, told reporters that Lewandowski declined to answer some questions relevant to the committee's investigation into allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, and Schiff said he had asked Republicans to issue a subpoena to compel Lewandowski to answer questions about the firing of former FBI Director James Comey and discussions he may have had with President Trump about special counsel Robert Mueller.

    The ancient code guiding Robert Mueller’s Russia probe
    What is special counsel Robert Mueller’s real agenda? His hidden motivations should greatly worry Donald Trump

    JIM SLEEPER

But Mueller is also driven by something else that’s implied in a recent Washington Post profile of him and Trump: a desire to repair and vindicate a code of citizen-leadership whose betrayal he experienced leading a Marine platoon in Vietnam, long before any of us knew of Donald Trump’s contempt for it. Now the future of Trump’s presidency hangs in the balance of whether Mueller’s effort succeeds.
