All of the gains on Wall Street this year are being wiped out by a sell off today.

The President seemed to indicate that the relationship with Saudi Arabia is too important to allow the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi [[ ka-SHO-gee ]] to change that.        The Michigan Attorney General is charging the former Michigan State University president in connection with the Larry Nassar sexual abuse scandal.
