“Yes, I am working on clarifying an ambiguous state law that Rand Paul believes is unconstitutional if it is interpreted to bar running for re-election to the Senate and for president at the same time,” Kentucky Senate Majority Leader Damon Thayer told The Times on Monday.

The latest updates on the volatile situation in the Ukraine: This morning, on Meet the Press, Sec. of State John Kerry threatened sanctions against Russia (and removing them from the G8)–raising the possibility of visa bans, asset freezes, and trade and investments. David Gregory twice asked Kerry “if there is a military option in Ukraine?” Kerry twice says, “No.” However, “there could even be ultimately asset freezes” if Putin does not withdraw Russian forces from Ukraine.

Mr. Ban, who is scheduled to speak to President Vladimir Putin of Russia, continues to closely follow the “seriously and rapidly unfolding events” in Ukraine, and is gravely concerned about the deterioration of the situation.
“The Secretary-General reiterates his call for the full respect for and preservation of the independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine,” his spokesperson said in a statement.Leave a comment
