Partisan rhetoric in Washington is intensifying, as new court filings suggest President Trump may have skirted campaign finance laws.

Federal prosecutors are recommending prison time for two former members of Trump's inner circle: former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his personal attorney Michael Cohen.

At the same time, the president's current circle continues to break apart with White House Chief of Staff John Kelly planning to leave at the end of the year.
