US General Michael Flynn officially put Iran on notice after Houthi rebels from Yemen attacked a Saudi Arabian naval ship. He blamed Iran for the attack because it previously backed the Houthis.

Israel is suing two New Zealanders for exercising freedom of speech inside their own country by posting an open letter requesting Lorde to boycott performances in Israel. Israel passed a law in 2011 that criminalizes the advocacy of boycotting its businesses. The government now is moving beyond its borders and seeking to punish boycotters in other countries as well.

In September, 2016, FBI lawyer Lisa Page was preparing talking points for James Comey to update Obama on the agency’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, and she sent a text to her paramour, fellow FBI agent, Peter Strzok, that said, “potus wants to know everything we’re doing.” This raises questions about what Obama knew and when he knew it. Representative, Louis Gohmert, says that either the FISA judge was duped or he is part of the fraud.
