Friday News Roundup

It's been another leaky week in the U.S. as concerns mount over secrets shared and confidences broken. Also, Turkey's president comes to Washington, but it's his bodyguards who leave a mark. Vladimir Putin says he can prove President Trump did not give secrets to Russia. And it's a pilgrimage of sorts as Donald Trump prepares to visit Saudi Arabia, Israel and the Vatican. Discussing domestic news is Byron York, chief political correspondent at The Washington Examiner, Julia Ioffe, staff writer at The Atlantic and Naftali Bendavid, editor and reporter for The Wall Street Journal. Discussing international news is Edward Luce, chief U.S. columnist and commentator at Financial Times, Elise Labott, global affairs correspondent at CNN, Nathan Guttman, Washington correspondent at Israeli Public TV and The Forward, Mehmet Toroglu, Turkish reporter for Voice of America and Paulina Villegas, reporter at the Mexico City bureau of The New York Times.
