As the beleaguered White House continues to fumble its way through the escalating scandal of whether or not President Trump revealed sensitive, classified intelligence to Russian officials in last week’s Oval Office meeting, Russian Vladimir Putin has offered Congress a copy of the transcript of that meeting as proof that he did not.

When President Donald Trump met with Russian officials in the Oval Office last week, he went “off script” and revealed sensitive, classified intelligence, according to a report by the Washington Post. If the report — which cites unnamed “current and former U.S. officials” — is accurate, this may be very bad news for both national security and future intelligence-gathering efforts.

A North Korean parliamentary committee sent a letter to the U.S. House protesting a bill to impose sanctions on Pyongyang and threatened to speed up its nuclear program.

 

President Donald Trump has approved a Pentagon plan to directly arm the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) — a group of Syrian Kurds with direct ties to an Islamo-Marxist terror group — in the fight against the Islamic State. The decision is sure to add insult to injury in already strained relations between the United States and Turkey.

A Russian plan establish “de-escalation zones” in Syria would bar military aircraft from all countries including the U.S.-led coalition from “no-fly” zones in Syria.
