The Russia probe increasingly resembles the worst days of Watergate: A crooked Attorney General who suffers from catastrophic memory loss; top White House aides who similarly cannot “recollect” their own incriminating activities; other top aides (or former top aides) talking with prosecutors and Congressional investigators; and a president in denial about his own grim prospects.

What’s different in the paranoid Trump White House is that the most nervous aide is the president’s own son-in-law.

Jared Kushner’s excuses for his misleading testimony about contacts with Russia during the Trump campaign are not persuasive, at least not to Seth Meyers — who reviews and amusingly updates the file on the First Son-in-Law.
