This is a special edition of Midday as NPR prepares to air live coverage of the news conference in Paris with President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron. 

Trump is sure to face questions about Russia and its meddling in the 2016 Presidential election. He has been largely out of the public eye since the release of his eldest son’s now famous emails. The scope of Russia investigations in the House, the Senate, and with the special counsel continues to expand.

Tom begins this hour with the Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist, Will Englund. He’s an editor on the Washington Post Foreign Desk who oversees the paper’s Russia coverage, and the author of a book on Russia called “March 1917: On the Brink of War and Revolution."
