  1. Might be buried in another topic but I'm pulling it forward as I've not seen it. The US's pet (whether it's Obama's "bow" or Kushner's buddy MBS) Saudi Arabia may have Dexter-ed journalist Jamal Khashoggi. We don't have an ambassador in Turkey or Saudi Arabia. The CIA could issue a conclusion shortly. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. MBS denies any knowledge, which of course is crap, and he will have to change his tune shortly. Kushner has been pushing MBS as a US ally. Saudi Arabia is the first country Trump visited as POTUS. The Trump State Department approved a nearly 700M dollar arms deal to Saudi Arabia in March, so that's in the cauldron as well. The story is summed up well here. Developing.
  2. This topic is leaking into 20 threads. My question now echoes from Watergate, "What did the president know and when did he know it?" Also want more info on what Flynn discussed and what is the nature of the Trump campaign contacts with Russian intel. I might have contacted Russian intel when I picked up my rental car today.
  3. Hard to pin this topic down. So far we have Tillerson as SoS, who has no track record really. Trump all over the map on China and the Middle East. Russia...god knows. The only policy piece that seems clear is a firm belief in government intervention and protectionism on trade. Any other clear statements yet? The good news is Obama set the bar so, so low. Barring widespread nuclear war, he can only do better.
  4. Starting to take place. Priebus is first as Trump's Chief of Staff. State leading name in Gingrich, which is interesting since he's a free trader and for a path to citizenship for illegals.
