Aung San Suu Kyi's Trial Extended On trial in Myanmar, Aung San Suu Kyi faces up to five years in prison in a case that the international community says is bogus. Lawyers in Rangoon wrapped up their closing arguments today and prosecutors will present theirs on Monday. The Nobel Peace Prize-winner is charged with violating house arrest because an American man swam to her lakeside home earlier this year. The trial has dragged on for more than two months, and a guilty verdict is considered likely. Min Zin, a teaching fellow at the University of California-Berkeley, has worked with Suu Kyi in Burma.
Trump plays scolder-in-chief with NATO allies At the opening of NATO’s dramatic new headquarters in Brussels today, President Trump acknowledged that Article 5 — promising that “an attack on one nation is an attack on all” -- has only been invoked one time: in the aftermath of September 11.

Ex-FBI Director Comey tells his side of the story Today, former FBI Director James Comey came close to calling the President who fired him a liar. The White House denied the claim and called it insulting, but Republican Senators did not challenge Comey’s truthfulness. Many questions remain: did the President try to obstruct a federal investigation? Later, we’ll go behind the “velvet rope” for a look at 5-Star health care for the richest Americans.
