ASSASSINATION/DEMS/IMPEACHMENT/IRAN/MILITARY/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The United States and Iran exchanged escalating military threats on Friday [1-3-20] as President Trump warned that he was ‘prepared to take whatever action is necessary’ if Iran threatened Americans and Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, vowed to exact vengeance for the killing on Mr. Trump’s order of Iran’s most valued general. Although the president insisted that he took the action to avoid a war with Iran, the continuing threats further rattled foreign capitals, global markets and Capitol Hill, where Democrats demanded more information about the strike and Mr. Trump’s grounds for taking such a provocative move without consulting Congress. Democrats also pressed questions about the attack’s timing and whether it was meant to deflect attention from the president’s expected impeachment trial this month in the Senate.”

LIBYA/MILITARY/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TURKEY: “President Donald Trump on Thursday [1-2-20] warned his Turkish counterpart against sending troops to fight in Libya hours after the Turkish Parliament voted to authorize such a move. Trump and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan discussed several ‘bilateral and regional issues,’ according to a readout of the call released by the White House, as well as simmering tensions and ongoing instability in Libya that have been condemned by the top United Nations official there. In Libya, where a rival regime in the nation’s east has attempted a coup to oust the Tripoli-based government of Prime Minister Fayez Sarraj, ‘foreign interference is complicating the situation,’ Trump said, according to the White House. The offensive has split the international community: The rival regime led by commander Gen. Khalifa Haftar has been backed the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, France and Russia, according to The Associated Press, while Sarraj’s government receives aid from Turkey, Qatar and Italy.”

MILITARY/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP PEOPLE: “A year ago, Navy SEAL Chief Petty Officer Edward Gallagher was wearing a Navy uniform at a brig near San Diego, facing murder charges that could have sent him to prison for the rest of his life. Now he is modeling his own lifestyle clothing brand, endorsing nutrition supplements and positioning himself as a conservative influencer with close ties to the man who helped clear him — President Trump. Chief Gallagher was acquitted this summer of charges that he shot at civilians and killed a wounded captive with a knife while serving as a platoon leader in Iraq. The demotion he received after his lone conviction — posing for a grisly trophy photo with the dead captive’s body — was reversed this fall by President Trump, who has repeatedly praised him. At a political rally in Florida, he called him ‘one of the ultimate fighters.’”
