Tensions rose between Washington and Kiev after Donald Trump‘s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani cancelled a scheduled visit to Ukraine last week. The former mayor of New York was due in Kiev to ensure Ukrainian authorities do not abandon legal investigations which he said could be “very, very useful” for Trump. (Photo by Don EMMERT / AFP)

As of Wednesday night, everyone was speculating about which foreign country President Trump might have made a “promise” to — a commitment that prompted a U.S. intelligence community whistleblower to lodge a mysterious complaint.
