After a week of intense criticism and public humiliation against his first ally in the presidential campaign, President Trump has shown that no decision is right when it comes to disloyalty.
The trial against former Donald Trump campaign director Paul Manafort has begun and with it, the first outcome of the FBI investigation into an alleged collusion between the 2016 presidential campaign and Russian officials.
In London last week, I met a Nigerian man who succinctly expressed the reaction of much of the world to America these days. “Your country has gone crazy,” he said, with a mixture of outrage and amusement. “I’m from Africa. I know crazy, but I didn’t ever think I would see this in America!”
Russia's deputy foreign minister Sergey Ryabkov has responded to news that a package of further punitive measures for Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 US elections and its 2014 annexation of the Crimea was voted through the House of Representatives.
After talking for two hours with members of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Monday morning, the president's son-in-law insists that "no means no”.
Immigration is a major league policy challenge. But Congress, having recently passed a pair of bills that will accomplish nothing, is stuck playing in the minors.
Last Wednesday, Donald Trump said he "would never have appointed Jeff Sessions as the attorney general," if he had known he would recuse himself from the investigation into alleged Russian interference in the election.
Drawing upon two years’ worth of impertinent comments, offensive tweets and harmful policy positions, Donald Trump can aptly be described with a number of words that end in “-ist.”
Protectionist. Nativist. Misogynist. Racist.
The latest revelations about Russia and Donald Trump’s campaign are useful because they might help unravel the mystery that has always been at the center of this story. Why has Trump had such a rosy attitude toward Russia and Vladimir Putin? It is such an unusual position for Trump that it begs for some kind of explanation.
Donald Trump’s foreign policy, such as it is, rests on a massive and apparently indestructible contradiction. Trump wants the United States to remain the “essential” nation, the best embodiment of Western ideals of freedom and democracy, while at the same time deliberately alienating many of our traditional “allies,” whose support the United States desperately needs. American leadership becomes difficult, if not impossible.
The inability of the President of the United States to maintain a coherent stance on the issue with Russia can be interpreted in two ways: political inability or strategy.

The only disagreement within the party is about how sharp-edged and left-wing that message should be. But it is increasingly clear that the problem for Democrats has little to do with economics and much more to do with a cluster of issues they would rather not revisit -- about culture, social mores and national identity.
This is the summer of our discontent. As Americans celebrate July 4, they are mad at their leaders, mad at their government and mad at each other. A recent Pew poll finds that “public trust in government remains near historic lows.” Just 20 percent of Americans trust the government to “do the right thing just about always or most of the time.” The comparable figures were 40 percent in 2000 and almost 80 percent in the early 1960s. There has been a long-term loss of trust.
Conservatives insist that CNN is DOA.
That’s nonsense. Ratings are high and profits are up. All this since the man who made a fortune by building up Donald Trump as a television star -- Jeff Zucker, the head of CNN who used to run NBC -- seems to have decided that there is more money to be made from tearing down Trump now that he is president.
Most damaging acts of cyber aggression have not been 'acts of war' according to the rigid standards of international law. Thus governments and international organisations struggle to prescribe an effective response to cyber actions -- even as they continue to cause grave economic, social, and political harm, Oxford expert says.
While we have been focused on the results of special elections, the ups and downs of the Russia investigation, and President Trump’s latest tweets, under the radar, a broad and consequential shift in American foreign policy appears to be underway. Put simply, the United States is stumbling its way into another decade of war in the greater Middle East. And this next decade of conflict might prove to be even more destabilizing than the last one.
According to statements in private sessions, two top national intelligence officials assured the Senate Intelligence Committee that the President would have asked them to deny any collusion with Russia.
In a speech in Miami, the US President is expected to reverse Obama's policy of rapprochement with Cuba and to announce stiffer rules on travel and commercial ties with the Caribbean island.
United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions angrily denied the suggestion that he colluded with Russians during the 2016 election, calling allegations an “appalling and detestable lie.”
Highlights from the testimony of former FBI director James Comey in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee today.

The information leaked by Reality Leigh Weiner, 25, is contained in a top secret NSA report explaining infiltration or "phishing" techniques used by Russia to interfere in the US voting system, and those pages show folding marks.
