Sunday: CIA Director Pompeo, Paul, Barbour

A new record high for the stock market and warming relations between North and South Korea ahead of the Winter Olympics were sidelined this week by startling revelations of a dysfunctional White House in Michael Wolff’s new book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.” The book has rattled Washington and the Trump administration and pitted the president against his former political advisor Steve Bannon.
