In late January, it was revealed that Hicks said emails between Donald Trump Jr. and an associate of Russian operatives promising “dirt” on Hillary Clinton would “never get out,” according to a former White House aide who reportedly spoke with special counsel Robert Mueller.

The United States announced Friday that it was sending military reinforcements to the Gulf region following attacks on Saudi oil facilities that it attributes to Iran, just hours after President Donald Trump ordered new sanctions on Tehran.

Trump said the sanctions were the toughest-ever against another country, but indicated he did not plan a military strike, calling restraint a sign of strength.
