During an appearance on MSNBC this Thursday, former Russian foreign minister Andrei Kozyrev commented on the “meltdown of American diplomacy” in the wake of President Trump’s withdrawal of US troops from northeast Syria, effectively green-lighting Turkey’s invasion of the region.
According to Kozyrev, Trump’s recent foreign policy decisions “plays right into [Putin’s] hands,” adding that it’s clear now why Putin’s “cohorts were celebrating when Trump was elected.”
“Russia is in support of [Syrian President Bashar al-Assad] who is losing … and who is isolated there [in a war] where there is no end,” Kozyrev said. “It’s a dead-end war there which they are waging, and all off a sudden [Trump] is coming [Putin’s] way from the American side.”
Kozyrev went on to say that throughout history, America usually dictated the course of foreign policy throughout the world. Now, he says, “I can’t believe what I see.”

‘You’re lying again’: Twitter fires back at Lindsey Graham’s claim that ‘Biden’s behavior was harmful to the United States’
In a series of tweets this Wednesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) gave his opinion that additional testimony in the impeachment effort against President Trump is "unnecessary," regardless of the leaked revelations from an unpublished manuscript of John Bolton's upcoming book. According to Graham, "one could assume everything attributable to John Bolton is accurate and still the House case would fall well below the standards to remove a president from office."
Graham then turned the focus of his thread to Joe Biden, writing that "there is ample evidence for the President to be concerned about conflicts of interest on behalf of Hunter Biden and that Vice President Joe Biden’s failure to take appropriate action was unacceptable."
