Why Trump Should Resist Temptation to Pardon His Team

| July 18, 2017

"Donald Trump is already enabling Russia with his lack of action. He doesn't even affirm the assessment by our intelligence agencies that Russia disrupted our elections; in statements, he still caveats the possibility that Russia did it with asides that it could have been others. He appears not to have challenged Russian President Vladimir Putin in any meaningful way when they met at the G20. States and localities have not been given any advice about how to protect their election systems going forward."

How Long Could Israel Survive Without America?

| July 14, 2017

"From the vantage point of contemporary readers, it may be surprising to learn that the US–Israeli relationship was actually quite limited and even cool until the late 1960s.

Amb. Burns: 'Unwise' for Trump to Question Russian Meddling

| July 06, 2017

Months of Russia controversy leaves Trump ‘boxed in’ ahead of Putin meeting

| July 04, 2017

President Trump promised voters that he would strike “a great deal” with Russia and its autocratic president, Vladimir Putin. Now nearly six months into his presidency, Trump is set to finally meet Putin at a summit this week in Hamburg — severely constrained and facing few good options that would leave him politically unscathed.
