President Trump's longtime fixer Michael Cohen says he is writing a second book on Trump's presidency, Politico first reported.

The big picture: Cohen's first tell-all, "Disloyal," published last month, painted a devastating portrait of Trump. The next project will focus on the politicization of the Department of Justice under this administration.

  • Cohen was sentenced in 2018 after pleading guilty to campaign finance violations, tax evasion and lying to Congress. He was released from prison in July and is serving the rest of his three-year sentence in home confinement.

What he's saying: “There’s so much more to the story that hasn’t been told, tangentially related to Donald Trump,” Cohen told Politico.

  • “It is fair and accurate to state that President Trump has weaponized the Department of Justice against those he deems to be a threat thus making it into the Department of Injustice.”

What to watch: Cohen said he's in talks with multiple publishers and hopes to release his latest book in 2021.

Mark Meadows: "We are not going to control the pandemic"

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows defended Vice President Pence's decision to continue traveling and campaigning despite his exposure to aides who have tested positive for COVID-19, saying Sunday that Pence is exempt from CDC guidelines because he is "essential personnel."

Why it matters: CDC guidelines call for people who have been exposed to the virus to quarantine for 14 days. Meadows said on CNN's "State of the Union" that Pence will wear a mask when he travels and argued that "he's not just campaigning," pointing to the Israel-Sudan normalization agreement announced by the White House last week.

Celebrating Halloween and Día de los Muertos will be difficult and more isolated this year, but can still be done while minimizing harm to others.

Why it matters: Traditional door-to-door trick-or-treating, indoor parties, haunted houses, crowded cemeteries and communal candy bowls are all considered high-risk activities by the CDC.
