We wrap up the week’s news with Catherine Rampell from the Washington Post and Don Lee for the Los Angeles Times. This week, news of Michael Cohen consulting for AT&T broke, so we discuss the ethics involved. And in trade, House Speaker Paul Ryan set May 17 as a deadline to submit a NAFTA deal to Congress, so we talk about what may come. Later, we discuss the labor market and JOLTS — the Job Opening and Labor Turnover Survey — and what it means for unemployment in the nation.
