President Donald Trump tweeted early Monday that coronavirus testing in the US is “much better” and “so much advanced that it makes us look like we have more cases, especially in proportion than in other countries.”

Confrontation for the independence of one of the most important federal prosecutors in the country ended in Jeffrey Berman agreeing to resign Saturday as a U.S. lawyer in the Southern District of New York. Berman’s office was investigated by Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudolph Giuliani. Attorney General William Barr said Jay Clayton, chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, was elected in place of Berman, but agreed to name his own deputy attorney Audrey Strauss, as an interim leader.
In another film, former National Security Advisor John Bolton told ABC News that Trump’s decision making is “Danger for the republic.” The interrogation took place Sunday evening, the day after a federal judge rejected a request from the Department of Justice to stop selling and distributing Bolton’s book, which is scheduled for release on Tuesday. However, the Saturday ruling was far from Bolton’s total victory, as the judge suggested that Bolton violated his employment contract.
