SIREN -- NAFTA CONCERNS EXPLODE ON THE HILL … Senior Republican aides on Capitol Hill are growing increasingly concerned about their ability to ratify a NAFTA deal that the White House cuts. They worry that if the president’s negotiators come to an agreement in the coming months, they will not have the support to pass it. It’s the middle of an election year, and trade politics are particularly thorny on Capitol Hill.
IT IS GETTING ALMOST NO ATTENTION but Congress would have to ratify a new NAFTA deal -- Trump can’t do this alone. The Trump administration has done absolutely nothing to prepare the Hill for a bruising trade vote in the middle of an election year, according to key aides involved. GOP leadership is well aware of the void. When Congress passed trade promotion authority to allow President Barack Obama to complete the Trans-Pacific Partnership pact, it benefited from a multi-year, multi-million dollar lobbying campaign.
Story Continued Below
THE BEST CASE SCENARIO FROM THE HILL: if the Trump administration comes to a deal, Congress could try to tackle it in a lame-duck session of Congress. But that could mean months and months of uncertainty.
BUT, BUT, BUT -- ADAM BEHSUDI and ANDREW RESTUCCIA are reporting that Trump’s Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer has another idea. “One strategy that has seemed to gain favor is to force a congressional approval on the new NAFTA by withdrawing from the existing pact even before the new one is ready. The thinking is that Congress will have to approve whatever terms are in the new deal quickly, lest the U.S. is left hanging without an agreement with two of its largest trading partners.” https://politi.co/2Hh7Hfy
IT’S WORTH NOTING: Congress doesn’t usually take kindly to the administration, or anyone for that matter, trying to force it to act.

THE COMEY MEMOS -- “Comey memos offer more details about fired FBI director’s dealings with Trump,” by Kyle Cheney: “Former FBI Director James Comey documented a conversation with President Donald Trump last year in which he said the president recalled Vladimir Putin telling him that Russia has ‘some of the most beautiful hookers in the world.’
“Per Comey’s memo, dated Feb. 8, 2017 but revealed publicly for the first time Thursday, Trump made the comment in the context of denying salacious allegations leveled against him in a dossier compiled by a former British spy, which had become public just weeks earlier.
“The memos, about 15 pages in all, track closely with Comey's testimony to Congress last year about his interactions with Trump. The Justice Department delivered Comey's memos to Congress on Thursday, one day after Republican lawmakers threatened to subpoena them. …
“The memos, obtained by POLITICO, appeared to be an instant political Rorschach test, with Trump allies declaring that the memos absolved the president of any whiff of improper conduct and Democrats suggesting they revealed the president's contempt for institutions of justice.” https://politi.co/2vvdj4p ... The memos https://politi.co/2vzZxha
-- NYT’S MICHAEL SCHMIDT: “6 Takeaways From the Comey Memos”: “Trump’s Preoccupation With the Dossier … The Dossier’s Allegations Were Corroborated … Trump’s Focus on McCabe, Then a Relative Unknown … What Priebus Knew … The Flynn Investigation … Hunting Leakers.” https://nyti.ms/2HDUQHY
THE PRESIDENT’S REACTION -- @realDonaldTrump at 11:37 p.m.: “James Comey Memos just out and show clearly that there was NO COLLUSION and NO OBSTRUCTION. Also, he leaked classified information. WOW! Will the Witch Hunt continue?”
THE INVESTIGATIONS …
-- CLIP AND SAVE -- “Rudy Giuliani joins Trump legal team, hopes to end Russia probe in ‘a week or two,’” by N.Y. Post’s Bob Frederick: “‘I’m going to join the legal team to try to bring this to a resolution,’ Giuliani told The Post. ‘The country deserves it. I’ve got great admiration for President Trump. “I’ve had a long relationship with Bob Mueller. I have great respect for him. He’s done a good job.’ Giuliani, a former US Attorney, served as New York City’s mayor when Mueller was the FBI director. ‘I don’t know yet what’s outstanding. But I don’t think it’s going to take more than a week or two to get a resolution. They’re almost there. “I’m going to ask Mueller, ‘What do you need to wrap it up?’” he said.” https://nyp.st/2HAAoHJ
-- “Inspector general referred findings on McCabe to U.S. attorney for consideration of criminal charges,” by WaPo’s Karoun Demirjian and Matt Zapotosky: “The Justice Department inspector general referred his finding that former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe repeatedly misled investigators to Washington’s top federal prosecutor, who will determine whether McCabe should be charged with a crime, according to people familiar with the matter.
“The referral to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia occurred some time ago, after the inspector general concluded McCabe had lied to investigators or his boss, then-FBI Director James B. Comey, on four occasions, three of them under oath. The U.S. attorney’s office met with McCabe’s legal team in recent weeks, though it was not immediately clear whether prosecutors there were conducting their own investigation or believed criminal charges are appropriate.” https://wapo.st/2qKWkGL
-- “Judge raises doubts about scope of Mueller’s authority,” by Josh Gerstein: “A federal judge raised doubts Thursday about the scope of the order used to appoint special counsel Robert Mueller to probe alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. During a two-and-a-half hour hearing in one of Mueller’s criminal cases against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson questioned whether Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s directive appointing Mueller granted him more authority than Justice Department regulations appear to permit.” https://politi.co/2vsEk8C
-- “Manafort Suspected of Serving as ‘Back Channel’ to Russia, DOJ Says,” by Bloomberg’s David Voreacos: “Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s interest in former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort stemmed in part from his suspected role as a ‘back channel’ between the campaign and Russians intent on meddling in the election, a Justice Department lawyer told a judge.
“Justice Department attorney Michael Dreeben said prosecutors were justified in investigating Manafort because he had served as Trump’s campaign chairman. ‘He had long-standing ties to Russia-backed politicians,’ Dreeben told [Judge Amy Berman] Jackson. ‘Did they provide back channels to Russia? Investigators will naturally look at those things.’” https://bloom.bg/2HMO0gM

FLYNN 2.0? -- “Michael Flynn tests ‘comeback tour’,” by Darren Samuelsohn and Laura Nahmias: “Michael Flynn may be headed to prison for lying to the FBI, but for now he’s enjoying his freedom. Donald Trump’s former national security adviser appeared onstage to endorse a Republican congressional candidate last month and on Thursday hopped an Amtrak train to Manhattan for what conservative organizers billed as an invitation-only ‘no holds barred’ foreign policy speech.
“The private appearance at an event hosted by the London Center for Policy Research was the latest evidence that Flynn, disgraced in the eyes of many former admirers, has become something of a celebrity among Trump supporters who see him not as a villain but as a victim of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.
“‘I’m doing great,’ Flynn told a POLITICO reporter Thursday as he was exiting midtown’s Union League Club before rejecting questions, including about what he discussed inside. ‘I don’t want to talk to you,’ he said. ‘You should work for TMZ instead of POLITICO. You’re like paparazzi.’” https://politi.co/2J75l3m
KNOWING KIMBA WOOD: “The Judge in the Michael Cohen-Stormy Daniels Case Is Perfect: A porn star in the courtroom? The president’s secrets at stake? Why Kimba Wood isn’t even blinking,” by David Freedlander in POLITICO Magazine: “The blog—now defunct—was called Underneath Their Robes, the poll was on ‘Superhotties of the Federal Judiciary,’ and the winner in the female category was a New York judge named Kimba M. Wood. After that, things could have gone totally off the rails. The blogger behind the poll, a Yale Law graduate named David Lat, found himself on a panel a few years later with Judge Wood and braced himself for a lecture.
“She was a very senior jurist; he was an upstart who had named her a ‘bodacious babe of the bench.’ Instead, when Wood found out who he was, she tossed her head back and started cackling. ‘That’s your website? What a hoot!’ Wood told him. As of this week, Wood sits at the center of the nation’s most important legal drama, deciding just how much attorney-client privilege President Donald Trump will be granted as prosecutors rifle through the files of his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.” https://politi.co/2HLMdsf
THE DONORS …
-- “Seeking Foreign Money, G.O.P. Donor Pushed for Trump to Golf With Malaysian Premier,” by NYT’s David D. Kirkpatrick and Mark Mazzetti: “White House aides were worried enough about a visit last year by Prime Minister Najib Razak of Malaysia, under investigation by American prosecutors who say he embezzled $3.5 billion from a state investment fund, that he was denied the customary photo in the Oval Office with President Trump.
“But that did not stop a top Republican fund-raiser, Elliott Broidy, from seeking to use his White House ties to press for Mr. Trump to play a golf game with Mr. Najib, who had the authority over negotiations for a lucrative Malaysian contract with Mr. Broidy’s private defense company.” https://nyti.ms/2qItFkG
PRUITT’S PROBLEMS … “EPA chief's aides, security agents made $45,000 trip to Australia,” by Reuters’ Jeff Mason: “U.S. [EPA] chief Scott Pruitt, under fire from lawmakers for travel and security expenses, spent about $45,000 in government money to fly five people to Australia to prepare for a planned trip that was later canceled. Two of his aides and three security agents flew to Australia last August on business-class tickets costing roughly $9,000 each to set up meetings for the EPA administrator. The purchase of business-class tickets was not a violation of U.S. government policy, which allows federal employees to travel business class on trips lasting 14 hours or more.
“But the spending on a five-person ‘advance’ team for the Australia trip, revealed by U.S. officials who spoke to Reuters, comes as Pruitt faces scrutiny over his own frequent first-class travel and spending on such items as a 24-hour security detail.” https://reut.rs/2HBYZff
CONGRESS WATCH -- “McConnell aims to reshape courts in case Senate flips,” by Burgess Everett: “Mitch McConnell is making a last dash to stock the judiciary with conservatives this year as a hedge against the chance that Republicans lose the Senate in November.
“The GOP may have only a few more months of unified control of Washington to repeal Obamacare or enact President Donald Trump’s infrastructure plan. But the Senate majority leader is taking a longer view — and confirming as many conservative judges as possible to lifetime appointments.” https://politi.co/2K2NuvW
BATTLE ROYALE IN THE HOOSIER STATE … “Luke Messer didn’t disclose DUIs when he replaced lawmaker killed by drunken driver,” by IndyStar’s Kaitlin Lange and Tony Cook: “In U.S. Senate candidate Luke Messer's first successful run for public office, he had to persuade a caucus of local party insiders that he was the right man to replace state Rep. Roland Stine, a beloved schoolteacher who was killed by a drunken driver less than a month earlier. That position would launch his political career and eventually land him a spot as a top Republican in Congress.
“But Messer had a secret: He himself had two drunken driving convictions. As he sought the state legislative seat in 2003, Messer decided against sharing that history with local Republican precinct leaders charged with selecting Stine’s replacement.
“Nor did he disclose it to county or district party leaders. In fact, many of those officials didn't know about Messer’s DUIs until contacted this week by IndyStar. ‘Wow, I had no idea whatsoever,’ said Roger Laird, the party’s Sixth Congressional District vice chairman at the time. ‘That’s something you need to tell somebody.’” https://indy.st/2HLIQ4C
THE JUICE …
-- 45Committee, the pro-Trump issue advocacy group, launched an effort to help Mike Pompeo’s Secretary of State nomination on Thursday.

CLICKER -- “Trump lied to me about his wealth to get onto the Forbes 400: Here are the tapes. Posing as ‘John Barron,’ he claimed he owned most of his father’s real estate empire. By Jonathan Greenberg in WaPo: “When I recently rediscovered and listened, for first time since that year, to the tapes I made of this and other phone calls, I was amazed that I didn’t see through the ruse: Although Trump altered some cadences and affected a slightly stronger New York accent, it was clearly him.” With 2-min. audio of “John Barron” https://wapo.st/2F1I3cU
2020 WATCH -- “Kamala Harris’ rapid rise confounds California: First-term senator is popular but remains something of a mystery to state voters,” by California Playbooker David Siders in L.A: “Kamala Harris has been called ‘the female Barack Obama.’ ... But the California senator’s rapid rise — she’s just 15 months into her first term — has created an awkward issue: Even as progressives tout her as one of the top 2020 contenders, Harris remains something of a mystery back home.
“Her approval ratings are solid, but not stratospheric. And 28 percent of California voters say they don’t know or have no opinion about Harris, according to a recent Morning Consult poll — placing her in the bottom 10 of name recognition among U.S. senators in their home states. A Berkeley IGS Poll in September found California voters — by a more than 2-to-1 margin, 49 percent to 22 percent — would rather Harris stay in the Senate than run for president in 2020.” https://politi.co/2HfmpE5
BUSINESS BURST -- “Wells Fargo Said to Be Target of $1 Billion U.S. Fine,” by NYT’s Emily Flitter and Glenn Thrush: “Federal regulators are poised to impose a $1 billion fine on Wells Fargo for years of selling unnecessary products to customers, the toughest action by the Trump administration against a major bank.
“The penalty, part of an expected settlement on Friday between the bank and two regulators, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, will punish Wells Fargo for forcing customers to buy auto insurance policies they did not need and other misdeeds, according to four people briefed on the regulatory action.” https://cnb.cx/2qLsDFx
TRUMP’S WASHINGTON -- “How Corey Lewandowski ‘F*cked Over’ a David Petraeus-Linked Socialite to Become the Polish Arms Industry’s Man in D.C.,” by the Daily Beast’s Lachlan Markay and Asawin Suebsaeng: “Corey Lewandowski, President Donald Trump’s informal adviser and fired campaign chief, quietly facilitated a highly lucrative deal between Poland’s top military contractors and one of the most elite lobbying shops in Washington, D.C., The Daily Beast has learned. In the process, Lewandowski managed to spurn socialite Jill Kelley, a one-time associate of the U.S.’ top military official and a central figure in the 2012 sex scandal that brought down retired general David Petraeus.
“The story ... [is] a cartoonishly Washington tale, involving backstabbing in the city’s notorious influence industry, a glamorous socialite who was at the center of a historic sex scandal, and political operatives who arrived in D.C. pledging to drain the swamp, only to end up pocketing large sums in exchange for brokering multibillion-dollar weapons deals.” https://thebea.st/2vzW2aC
KUSHNER FILES -- “Kushner Cos. subpoenaed by feds after AP report,” by AP’s Bernard Condon: “The Kushner Cos. confirmed Thursday it was subpoenaed by federal prosecutors for information related to an Associated Press report that the company filed dozens of false documents about its buildings in New York City. The real estate company issued a statement saying it has ‘nothing to hide and is cooperating fully with all legitimate requests for information, including this subpoena.’” https://bit.ly/2qMCaes
VALLEY TALK -- “Leaked video shows Theranos employees playing the video game they created where you shoot at the reporter who exposed the startup’s problems,” by Business Insider’s Kif Leswing: “Theranos, the once high-flying startup that promised to revolutionize blood tests, is on its deathbed and will cease to exist this summer unless it can raise more money, according to a letter to investors. But some within the company don’t blame the technology or its management for the startup’s fall — instead, they blame John Carreyrou, the Wall Street Journal reporter who revealed that it was misleading people about its blood-testing technology.
“Theranos employees even made a ‘Space Invaders’-style video game where you shoot at him. After Business Insider wrote about the existence of the game, someone sent us a video of employees playing it. ‘Wow, I got big screen treatment!’ Carreyrou said in an email.” https://read.bi/2K1wl5G
