Escalating Extrajudicial Killings In The Philippines And Diplomatic Crises Between Russia And America

On today's show:

  • Paul A. Goble, a former special advisor to the Secretary of State and Russia analyst, says it’s likely the Trump administration won’t enforce new sanctions on Russia and that the removal of American diplomats from Russia won’t hurt the U.S. much either.
