Trump and a tale of 2 sheets of paper

President Donald Trump held up and read from a sheet of paper in the Rose Garden this past week as he argued he’s been hounded by investigators in the Russia probe for no reason. “Nearly 500 search warrants,” says the page, from an ABC News graphic. “More than 2,500 subpoenas.” And: “19 special counsel lawyers & 40 FBI agents worked the case.” In Trump’s telling, it’s all a hoax.

Trump did not show or quote from a second page that goes with the graphic, laying out the results of the investigation.
Among them: “37 total indicted ... 26 Russians indicted ... 4 people sent to prison ... 7 guilty pleas.”

TRUMP: “I don’t do cover-ups.” — Rose Garden remarks Wednesday to reporters.

Prosecutors’ court filings in December said Trump directed his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, to make payments to buy the silence of porn actress Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal during the 2016 presidential campaign. Both women alleged they had extramarital affairs with Trump, which the White House denies.

In particular, the Justice Department says the hush money payments were unreported campaign contributions meant to influence the outcome of the election.
