From NBC News:
President Donald Trump’s national security adviser, John Bolton, said Wednesday that any meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin would be put off until 2019 because of special counsel Robert Mueller’s “witch hunt.”
Witch hunt? Why, that can only mean one thing!

HELSINKI (Reuters) – Standing side-by-side with Vladimir Putin, U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday refused to blame the Russian leader for meddling in the U.S. 2016 election, casting doubt on the findings of his own intelligence agencies and sparking a storm of criticism at home.

Sen. Marco Rubio put aside serious reservations about Rex Tillerson and announced Monday he’ll back the former ExxonMobil chief for secretary of state, effectively clinching his confirmation.
The support of the Florida Republican means Tillerson will clear a Monday evening in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee instead of facing an embarrassing “unfavorable” verdict by the panel. Rubio’s decision likely foreshadows unanimous GOP support for Tillerson, who had made some Republicans nervous about his closeness to Russian President Vladimir Putin and reluctance to criticize Putin’s actions during his confirmation hearing.

Jan 6 (Reuters) – The decisions by two U.S. Senate Democratic heavyweights to call it quits at the end of this year will cost their party plenty of punch on Capitol Hill.
But it should not knock out any pending legislation, such as healthcare and regulatory reform, though it may affect other areas, from trade to fighting abuse in government contracts.
Here’s a look at the likely fallout from the announcements by Senators Christopher Dodd and Byron Dorgan that they will not seek what would have been their sixth and fourth terms, respectively, in November’s election.

From The Times-Picayune:
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana Democrats attacked U.S. Sen. David Vitter over his vote Thursday against Secretary of State nominee Hillary Clinton, which Vitter said stemmed from concerns about overseas conflicts of interest.
The Louisiana Republican was the only member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to oppose the nomination, saying Clinton shouldn’t run the State Department because of her husband’s charitable fundraising overseas.

Following Barack Obama’s historic visit to the White House on Monday, Vice President-elect Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, met with Dick Cheney and his wife, Lynne, on Thursday at the official vice-presidential residence, a 19th-century Victorian home on the grounds of the U.S. Naval Observatory.

From Think Progress:
Discussing Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s (R) prospects as Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) running mate this morning on Fox and Friends, Brian Kilmeade said Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE) “is going to capitalize” in a debate with Palin because “she has no international relations experience, she’s not the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee.” Co-host Steve Doocy then jumped in to try to set the record straight.
DOOCY: But the other thing about her, she does know about international relations because she is right up there in Alaska right next door to Russia
