By many accounts, the White House is still in turmoil after the resignation last week of a top aide over domestic abuse allegations. Over the weekend, President Trump took to Twitter to issue what looked to many to be a defense of Rob Porter. It's not the first time Trump has shown sympathy for a man accused of abuse. Also, the NPR podcast EMBEDDED is coming out with two new episodes on the Russia investigation — the timeline, collusion, and obstruction of justice. This episode, host/congressional correspondent Scott Detrow, White House correspondent Tamara Keith, political reporter Danielle Kurtzleben, and national political correspondent Mara Liasson, with a guest appearance from EMBEDDED host Kelly McEvers.
