President Donald Trump’s nominee for U.S. attorney general said on Tuesday he did not believe Special Counsel Robert Mueller would be involved in a “witch hunt,” a charge often levied by Trump against the Russia probe that Mueller leads.

Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times journalist Maggie Haberman posted a fascinating update about a photo of impeachment figure Lev Parnas.
