President Donald Trump twice gave James Comey an alibi for why a salacious report about the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow couldn’t be true: He never even spent the night in Russia during that…

    Trump told Comey the dossier couldn't be right because he never even spent the night in Russia on his 2013 trip there. But Bloomberg has flight records showing he landed in Moscow at 6:15 a.m. on the Friday and didn't leave until 3:58 a.m. Sunday morning. https://t.co/pg2bPLN3Zc

👋 Whoa! WTF is this?

Current Status is the consensus view of the current top U.S. political stories from a cross-section of the news media ecosystem.


There are three components that determine the Current Status: First, there is an editorially-responsible algorithm that considers the signals news editors send about a story's news value. Second, there's a human-in-the-loop curating the list and providing oversight to ensure that the Current Status is a fair and accurate representation of the day's essential political stories. And third, Current Status is biased toward recent, highly-cited stories, with an emphasis on depth and accuracy. The stars are a reflection of a story's current relative news value.

This is what the political web is talking about right now.

    I wrote a profile of HR McMaster, based on conversations with 20 current & former staffers on Trump's NSC. It asks the question: what does it mean to be National Security Advisor when one of the biggest threats facing the country is the president himself? https://t.co/SNhaczQtpe

    McMaster surely hastened his own demise when he acknowledged, at the Munich Security Conference, in February, that Robert Mueller had amassed “incontrovertible” evidence of a Russian effort to interfere in the 2016 election. https://t.co/FwppWOBQVk
