9 days ago   |   By

WASHINGTON - A 55-page flurry of court filings shows just how deeply the investigations surrounding President Donald Trump have gone, scrutinizing secret Russian contacts, hush money meetings and a tangle of lies designed to conceal those activities.
But for all the cards special counsel Robert Mueller played Friday, it's still not clear what else he holds, or when he will put them on the table.

When U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping met in April at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort, one topic was not on the agenda: the environment. Perhaps they couldn't find enough common ground. Xi, a chemical engineer by training, has often spoken publicly about his concerns over the effects of climate change on China, where almost 20 percent of the land is desert, an area expanding at a rate of more than 1,300 square miles per year. Analysts believe Xi is also determined to help China dominate the clean energy industry. In 2015, China installed more than one wind turbine...
