President Donald Trump biographer, David Cay Johnston, said that the president has a history of working with “mob guys” during a Wednesday interview with CNN host Erin Burnett.
Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) has said that investigations into Trump’s finance will proceed and that Congress would not be bullied by the president. Trump responded by calling the investigations “presidential harassment.”
“Investigators in New York have been aware of Donald Trump and have been looking at him for decades. You’ve obviously investigated him as well. Is there anything they will find now that they didn’t find before?” Burnett asked.
“They weren’t really looking before. I mean, as I point out in my biography, Donald Trump was involved up to his eyeballs with a major international cocaine trafficker and did things that made no sense. Donald has been involved with mob guys, tax cheating his entire life. Donald has beaten four grand juries in the past, though. He is very good at getting around law enforcement.”

Paul Krugman issues dire warning about next four months under Trump
In his column for the New York Times, Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman expressed dismay that -- even with coronavirus infection rates going through the roof across the country --Donald Trump is still acting like the health crisis is over and Americans should return to their normal lives.
Noting that Vice President Mike Pence recently penned an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal proclaiming, “There Isn’t a Coronavirus ‘Second Wave',” the columnist was gobsmacked by the Trump administration's "delusions and magical thinking that have marked every step of the Trump administration’s response to Covid-19."
‘Gaslighting on a massive scale’: Doctor warns Trump is lying us into a COVID disaster
On CNN Friday, Dr. Celine Grounder tore into President Donald Trump's ongoing falsehoods about the coronavirus pandemic.
"No matter how many times public health officials, especially like Anthony Fauci, speak the truth, what does it do, Doctor, when the president continues to lie to the public in face of a public health crisis?" asked anchor Kate Bolduan.
"This is gaslighting on an enormous scale, and means until people eventually get sick or their family members get sick, the communities hit hard, they won't believe it, and then it will be too late," said Grounder. "The problem is there's a lag period from the time that somebody's infected and starts to develop symptoms a couple days later. We don't see people get severely sick and need to be hospitalized and in ICUs until a week into disease, and talking about probably one to two weeks of lag time from the time somebody's exposed at least before you start to see hospitalizations and then another couple weeks before you start to see deaths."
