Analysis | Hillary Clinton suggests Putin has kompromat on Trump, Russia will back Tulsi Gabbard third-party bid

"I’m not making any predictions," Clinton said, "but I think they’ve got their eye on someone who’s currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate. She’s the favorite of the Russians."

👋 Whoa! WTF is this?

Current Status is the consensus view of the current top U.S. political stories from a cross-section of the news media ecosystem.


There are three components that determine the Current Status: First, there is an editorially-responsible algorithm that considers the signals news editors send about a story's news value. Second, there's a human-in-the-loop curating the list and providing oversight to ensure that the Current Status is a fair and accurate representation of the day's essential political stories. And third, Current Status is biased toward recent, highly-cited stories, with an emphasis on depth and accuracy. The stars are a reflection of a story's current relative news value.

This is what the political web is talking about right now.

Today in one sentence: Mick Mulvaney confirmed that Trump blocked military aid to Ukraine to force Kiev to investigate his political rivals; the U.S. ambassador to the European Union told House impeachment investigators that Trump delegated American foreign policy on Ukraine to Rudy Giuliani; Rick Perry spoke with Giuliani at Trump's direction earlier this year about Ukraine; the U.S. and Turkey agreed to a five-day ceasefire in Syria; and Trump decided the U.S. will host next year's G-7 summit at the Trump National Doral Miami Golf Club.
