The next few days will see intense speculation about how this will affect Trump personally. But it’s important because the world can now see that Mueller has sharp teeth. But to get to Trump, surely Mueller must go after Trump’s family?

John McCain is right to support the Kurds. Sadly,  it reminds me of Kissinger’s agreement at the end of the Vietnam War,  the US government abandoned their ally South Vietnam.

Most importantly, McCain is right about a strategy for the Middle East. With ISIS deposed,  Iran is bolstering her influence.
