The president’s written answers to the Special Counsel included two critical denials regarding key events: That Roger Stone did not tell him about Wikileaks and that Trump did not know about the 2016 Trump Tower meeting ahead of time.

Weighing in: Former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner, Princeton professor Eddie Glaude, Washington Post National Reporter Carol Leonnig, and Reason Magazine Editor-at-Large Matt Welch.
