President Donald Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel appear headed for a one-on-one confrontation on the sidelines of a NATO summit in Brussels.
The two world leaders will soon meet. Trump plans to bring up his contention that Russia controls Germany with its energy dominance.
Merkel has already fired back at Trump, saying she lived in Germany under Soviet control and the government today is different, and that Germany is a solid US and NATO ally.
The Associated Press has compiled a list of the information provided in the list of memos authored by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, and compared it with what has been revealed through court filings and public statements. And while the AP finds what they believe to be “snippets of fiction” in the pages, they also find that a great deal of what Steele produced is proving to have a basis in fact.

At almost every U.S.-Soviet summit for decades, the president was accused of appeasement.
