House and Senate investigators asked Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, “to provide information and testimony” about any contacts he had with people connected to the Russian government. He refused.

From the last three days on NYT:

Jared Kushner now a focus in Russia investigation

Top Russian Officials Discussed How to Influence Trump Aides Last Summer

Russian (Once Tied to Trump Aide - Manafort) Seeks Immunity to Testify Before Congress

A dubious Russian document influenced the FBI’s handling of the Clinton probe

Sessions Was Advised Not to Disclose Russia Meetings on Security Forms

Russian ambassador told Moscow that Kushner wanted secret communications channel with Kremlin

Senate Intelligence Committee requests Trump campaign documents


That’s in the space of three days on two newspapers. That isn’t counting what WaPo, WSJ, BBC, and every other reporter is publishing. Any one of these would be enough to power a scandal for months. That’s seven in three days. 

Its. Not. Normal.

Oh, and as a reminder: 

Pence swore up and down that there was no communication with Russia. 

Trump swore up and down that there was no communication with Russia. 

And every day, we get new evidence of how far the lies go.
