The Presidential Daily Brief


  1. Manafort’s Mutterings, Suu Kyi’s Equivocation and Ryanair’s Disaster

    Know This: Former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort was reportedly wiretapped during the 2016 run for the White House, an operation that can only take place once a court is given evidence suggesting someone may be an agent of a foreign power. Myanmar’s leader Aung San Suu Kyi says her country’s committed to a “sustainable solution” to the Rohingya crisis, but didn’t address allegations of state violence. And Spain has kicked out its North Korean ambassador in retaliation for the country’s ongoing nuclear tests.
