With the impeachment trial of President Trump under way, U.S. senators have polished their talking points about upholding the Constitution. They also have another phrase at the ready: “Please do not touch me.”
A Ukraine airliner that crashed in Iran, killing all 176 people aboard, was most likely brought down accidentally by Iranian anti-aircraft missiles, U.S. officials said on Thursday.
President Trump said on Wednesday Iranian missile strikes on bases in Iraq had not harmed any U.S. troops stationed there and damage was minimal, an outcome he said showed Tehran wanted to de-escalate a standoff.
President Trump said an assessment of casualties and damage from the strikes was under way and that he would make a statement on Wednesday morning.
U.S. President Donald Trump has been briefed on reports of an attack on U.S. facilities in Iraq and was monitoring the situation, White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said.
