In other news, Trump's longtime henchman and fixer Michael Cohen has reportedly told friends that he expects to be arrested any day now.
Meanwhile, an inside source within the NRA says the organization's leaders had extensive contact with Russian officials during the 2016 campaign including members of Putin's inner circle. The NRA spent far more money to support Trump than any previous Republican candidate.
Finally, Trump's Chief of Staff John Kelly was definitely hacked last year according to emails obtained by Buzzfeed, if anyone is still pretending to care about such things.
Kelly, now President Trump’s chief of staff, also confirmed in his email what had been rumored: that his personal email account had been hacked. Due to the breach, Kelly said he rarely communicates electronically and instead does “almost everything now by phone or face-to-face comms.”
Benghazi! or whatever
Also, it looks like the vague agreement Trump signed with Kim Jong-un is already falling apart. Maybe. Or maybe not? Who the fuck knows?
Huh. Senator Cory Gardner (R-Colorado) says U.S. military “exercises will continue with South Korea” despite the president saying he’ll stop them.

Pence told Senate GOP that military exercises in Korea will continue, per Sen. Gardner

Via @MariannaNBCNews, Gardner: "Exercises will continue with South Korea" and "look forward to further calm and clarification from the president when he gets here." Said VP will "continue to clarify" the president's statements. Huh.

Followed up w Gardner to try and clarify this: So did Pence tell Senate Rs exercises wld continue?
Gardner: "I think there are certain exercises that will continue, yes."
So how does that square with "war games"? "Well that’s why I said there needs to be some clarification." https://t.co/JtftpkaWVl

NEW: From @kwelkernbc, citing an official in @VP's office: The Vice President made clear the bi-annual military exercises will cease. But Pence was referring to routine training and readiness exercises that would continue. Official notes "huge difference between the two."
