The Washington Post fact-checked Trump's USA Today column. They struggled to find a single honest sentence.
President Trump’s USA Today op-ed lacerating Democrats’ push for Medicare-for-all on Wednesday used his signature hyperbolic flair, including claims that health care as we know it would be “forced to die” and that Democrats want to recreate Venezuela.
But The Washington Post’s fact checker found that the op-ed was even worse than merely hyperbolic. “Almost every sentence contained a misleading statement or a falsehood,” the Post concluded. The single-payer health-care plan as outlined by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) would expand services for seniors, not “take away benefits that seniors have paid for their entire lives,” as Trump posited.
Fact checker Glenn Kessler also pointed out that health insurance premiums have not, in fact, gone down on average, and Trump did not keep his promise to bolster protections for pre-existing conditions. Where Trump blames Democrats, the Post blames the efficacy of health-care providers; where Trump claims seniors will be disproportionately harmed, the Post describes the oppos

Rudy Giuliani called Michael Cohen an 'honest, honorable lawyer' in May. Now, he's an 'incredible liar.'
Michael Cohen is officially out of President Trump’s lawyer squad, and current club leader Rudy Giuliani wants to make that very clear.
On last night’s episode of Cuomo Prime Time, Giuliani turned on Cohen, the president’s former longtime personal lawyer. “He’s lied all his life,” Giuliani told CNN’s Chris Cuomo of Cohen. “There is no doubt in my mind that he’s just not credible.” “He has lied all his life… a person who is found to be an incredible liar, he’s got a tremendous motive to lie now… I don’t think anyone believes that.” Rudy Giuliani dismisses report Michael Cohen claims Trump knew in advance of 2016 Trump Tower meeting
— Cuomo Prime Time (@CuomoPrimeTime) July 27, 2018 Giuliani’s accusation came after the Tuesday release of a tape in which Cohen and the president discussed buying the rights to a former Playboy model’s story of an alleged affair between her and Trump. Cohen secretly recorded the conversation, and his lawyer Lanny Davis released it

Trump publicly asked Russia to 'find' Hillary Clinton's missing emails. Kremlin agents apparently tried that evening.
It was apparently the very night that then-candidate Donald Trump called on Russia to find his opponent Hillary Clinton’s “missing” emails in July 2016 that Russian operatives “attempted after hours to spearfish for the first time email accounts at a domain hosted by a third-party provider and used by Clinton’s personal office,” Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s latest indictment says. The Justice Department’s discovery — that “on or about July 27, 2016” Russian intelligence agents apparently heeded Trump’s call — casts uncertainty over the White House’s claim that Trump was just “joking” when he asked for Russia to hack Clinton.
Earlier on July 27, 2016, Trump had said, “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing.” Just days later, WikiLeaks began publishing hacked Democratic National Committee emails, NBC News reports. On Friday, the DOJ indicted 12 Russian intelligence officials over that hacking, with the intention of interfering in the outcome of the electio
