On a day when he faced pressure from critics, allied countries and even his own staff to take a tough line, Trump said not a single critical word about Moscow on any of the issues that have brought relations between the two powers to the lowest ebb since the Cold War.

Thursday’s House Judiciary Committee testimony from FBI agent Peter Strzok descended into absolute chaos shortly after the opening statements.

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) was the first to question the agent. The Congressman asked Strzok how many people had been interviewed in the Russia probe from July 31-Aug. 8. Strzok declined to answer, saying that FBI counsel instructed him not to answer questions about an ongoing investigation.
