The White House says President Trump is set to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in a second summit near the end of February. The announcement comes after Trump met today with a high-ranking North Korean official at the White House. Trump met with Kim in June of last year in Singapore.       President Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani says Trump never told Michael Cohen to lie to Congress on his behalf. Giuliani called Cohen a convicted criminal and a liar. Giulian's comments are in response to a BuzzFeed report that Trump personally directed Cohen to lie to lawmakers about the Trump Tower Moscow project.        House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is accusing President Trump of leaking her plans to lead a congressional delegation to Afghanistan. At the Capitol today, Pelosi suggested it was a sign of Trump's inexperience and questioned whether he understands security protocols. Afghanistan is a war zone and U.S. officials don't announce details of planned trips because of security risks.        Negotiators are back at the bargaining table in the Los Angeles teachers strike. Talks aimed at ending the five-day-old walkout went past midnight in a 12-hour marathon. The teachers union is demanding smaller class sizes and better pay.        Thousands of pro-life activists are taking part in today's March for Life in Washington, DC. In a surprise appearance, Vice President Pence told the crowd the right to life is guaranteed in the Constitution. The annual event protests the Supreme Court's Roe versus Wade ruling in 1973.        The lead attorney for Harvey Weinstein is officially leaving the disgraced movie mogul's legal team. According to a statement, Ben Brafman will work with Weinstein's new counsel to ensure an orderly transition. Weinstein has been charged with raping a woman in 2013 and performing a forcible sex act on a different woman in 2006.
