U.S. Senate defense bill would bar Turkey from buying F-35 jetsBy Patricia Zengerle WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A U.S. Senate committee passed its version of a $716 billion defense policy bill on Thursday, including a measure to prevent Turkey from purchasing Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighter jets. The amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, from Democratic Senator Jeanne Shaheen and Republican Senator Thom Tillis, would remove Turkey from the F-35 program over its detention of U.S. citizen Andrew Brunson, Shaheen’s office said.

Obama administration too slow to probe Russian meddling in 2016: Senate sources

Obama administration too slow to probe Russian meddling in 2016: Senate sourcesBy Mark Hosenball WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Senate investigators have concluded that President Barack Obama’s administration was too slow to investigate suspected Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election, two sources familiar with their inquiries said. The sources, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told Reuters the Senate Intelligence Committee found that although there was mounting evidence of Russian interference for months before the November 2016 election, the Obama administration did not press U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies to investigate. Law enforcement and intelligence officials say the administration’s stance was consistent with customary law enforcement and intelligence agency practice to avoid influencing voters in the run-up to an election.
