Liar! Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort lied to the FBI and Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office "on a variety of subject matters" since his plea deal earlier this year, thereby violating the agreement, Mueller said in a court filing submitted Monday night, while adding that Manafort claims he's been truthful. Guest: John Roberts, Fox News Chief White House Correspondent, has the latest.
Secret Meetings? Sources close to Paul Manafort and WikiLeaks both denied an explosive Guardian report Tuesday claiming the convicted Trump campaign chairman met with Julian Assange the same month he joined the Trump team. WikiLeaks, the secretive organization that rocked the 2016 presidential election by posting hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign, issued a fiery denial about the reported meeting with its founder. "@WikiLeaks is willing to bet the Guardian a million dollars and its editor's head that Manafort never met Assange," the group tweeted.
Can He? Should he? President Donald Trump said the U.S. will close its southern border with Mexico if needed, a day after U.S. agents shot several rounds of tear gas at migrants, some of whom tried to breach a border fence. "Mexico should move the flag waving Migrants, many of whom are stone cold criminals, back to their countries," Trump said Monday on Twitter. "Do it by plane, do it by bus, do it anyway you want, but they are NOT coming into the U.S.A. We will close the Border permanently if need be." Trump made similar threats in October ahead of the midterm elections, warning that an approaching "caravan" of migrants posed a risk to U.S. security and claiming without evidence that criminals were among the group. So far, he hasn't followed through on those threats. Judge Andrew Napolitano, Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst, gives his take.
