DC: Russian Government, Prime Minister To Resign
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev announced Tuesday that the entire Russian government is resigning following Russian President Vladimir Putin’s State-of-the-Nation address.
Following Putin’s address, Medvedev issued a statement on Russian state TV announcing that the entire government will resign. He said the step-down comes in an effort to allow Putin to make the changes to the constitution.
“In this context, it is obvious that, as the government, we must provide the president with a capability to make all decisions,” Medvedev said following Putin’s proposals, RT reported….

Debra Heine: GOP Rep Stuns Foreign Relations Committee Panel With Pointed Question About Killing of Soleimani
“…If you walk out this hallway, and you take a right and a right and another right, you’re going to come to several beautiful walls that have the names of our fallen service members from the War on Terror,” Mast began. “And I would ask, can any of you provide me with one name on that wall that doesn’t justify killing Soleimani?”
The congressman noted that he still had two minutes and thirty seconds of time left and would “be more than happy” to sit there and wait for an answer.
“Somebody provide me with a name on that wall that does not justify his killing,” he said…
“…I’m continuing Mr. Chairman,” Mast replied. “I’ve got two minutes remaining. I will sit here and wait for somebody to provide me with a name on that wall that does not justify the killing of Soleimani.” The Florida Republican sat back again and waited while the panel sat in uncomfortable silence.
After about eight more seconds, Engel said, “thank you Mr. Mast, I think you made your point,” and he tried to move on to the next congressman.
“Mr. Chairman I’ve not yielded back my time and I still have a minute and 45 seconds,” Mast shot back.
When Engel complained that Mast was disrupting the hearing, the congressman insisted, “I have not yielded back my time!”
He continued, “I have a minute and 45 seconds remaining in which I would like somebody to provide me with a name of somebody on our wall who does not…”
Engel interrupted Mast to tell him that he was “out of order.”
“I will not yield back my time,” Mast repeated.
“You are out of order,” Engel said again.
Another Republican then offered to yield a minute of his time to Mast.
“Thank you my colleague,” said Mast. “I appreciate it.”
He then sat back in silence, still waiting for an answer from the panel, which offered none.
After about a minute and a half of silence, Mast noted that there was no response to his question. “Not one name offered that would not justify the killing of Soleimani,” he concluded….
