In hour one of Here & Now's Feb. 19, 2018 full broadcast, President Trump sent out some eyebrow-raising tweets over the weekend about FBI missteps and the Russia investigation. We round up the weekend in politics, and look ahead, with NPR's Domenico Montanaro. Also, just last March, a 30-year-old American crossed the border between North and South Korea, for the love of a sport — and made it back home. And the conflict in Syria appears to be escalating again. BBC Middle East editor Sebastian Usher joins us to share the latest developments.
