– Alex Lawson, executive director of Social Security Works, on President Donald Trump and the Republican-led Congress's plan to cut $880 billion from Medicaid

On May 26, The Washington Post broke the story that Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner had proposed setting up a back-channel between the Trump transition team and Moscow using Russia’s secure cyber equipment at either Moscow’s embassy or consulate. The newspaper said that Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak had reported to his superiors that Kushner made the proposal during a meeting with him on either Dec. 1 or 2 at Trump Tower, according to intercepts of Russian communications that were reviewed by U.S. intelligence agencies.  Story continues
