It was another incredible week in Washington and the presidency of Donald Trump. Incredible but also remarkable.

Less than 5 months into the Trump administration, and the man President Trump fired as director of the FBI, James Comey, was testifying under oath to the Senate that some of the things the president said were - his words - "lies, plain and simple."

And the former director of the FBI, supposed to be independent, said he was told by the President of the United States to be loyal to him.

Joining us is a former FBI special agent in charge, Richard Frankel, who is now an attorney for Ruskin Moscou Faltischek, within their White Collar Crime practice and a contributor to ABC News.

Also, New York City is always transforming itself. But perhaps one of the most biggest and visible transformations has been Central Park.

The old park was the stuff of ridicule by non New Yorkers. High crime. Drug addicts. Prostitutes.

That Central Park has all but disappeared.

And now the man who helped spearhead that transformation is leaving his job.

We're joined by Doug Blonsky, President and CEO of the Central Park Conservancy.
