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.

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.
