Roger Stone said President Donald Trump treats his attorney Michael Cohen like “garbage,” according to a new report from the New York Times. The report says that Cohen and Trump have a much more unpleasant relationship than one might assume, suggesting that the attorney may have good reason to turn on the president.

Discussing the attacks on Syria, Russia’s Foreign minister Sergei Lavrov insisted the Kremlin was very much in the loop and helped set the perimeters.…
