Trump Calls Cut Comey and Qatar, Calm is Urged on Russia, and Infrastructure Week Ends With a Whimper: P.M. Links


  • Qatar

    President Trump hit back at James Comey today, saying the fired former FBI director lied during his testimony, but also totally vindicated him. I suppose both can be true.

  • Sheldon Richman reminds everyone to take a chill pill on Russia.
  • After selling billions of arms to Saudi Arabia, Trump tells Qatar to stop funding terrorist organizations.
  • Overall, Trump's infrastructure week turned out to be kind of a bust, with his pronouncements being heavily overshadowed by the Comey hearing and resulting fallout. Still, don't give up hope on air traffic control privatization.
