Trump moves to reopen government for a few weeks?
The Roger Stone story is dominating the wires and and government "reopening" will pack the news agenda and the weekend pundit shows still further. So the 25% of the government that is closed looks like it may reopen for a while with a continuing resolution in Congress.
President Trump is expected to announce Friday he'll back a move to reopen the government for a few weeks. He's slated to make a statement on this development at the White House Friday afternoon, amid a tumultuous day with the federal government shutdown affecting staffing at airports. Earlier Friday, his former campaign adviser and associate Roger Stone appeared in federal court. Mr. Trump is expected to meet with mayors and pastors later in the day.
