But questions have arisen about what the Fed's done with authority it already has. Last week's report about the collapse of Lehman Brothers two years ago revealed practices that could have deceived investors about the firm's health.

Truth and Lies in Trumpland Donald Trump is using mis-information like no President has before him. It's an unprecedented challenge to the news media, and a potential threat to democracy. We hear how the "leader of all the people" is dividing Americans and confusing the rest of the world.

President Trump says it's being abused as a way to find cheap foreign labor. We hear about the benefits—and the risks—of changing the H-1B program.
