The U.S. Treasury Department on Thursday adjusted sanctions on Russian intelligence agency FSB, making limited exceptions to the measures put in place by former President Barack Obama over accusations Moscow tried to influence the U.S. presidential election with cyber attacks on political organizations. ... Beyond its intelligence function, the FSB also regulates the importation of software and hardware that contains cryptography.

"President Trump blasted Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull over a refu­gee agreement and boasted about the magnitude of his electoral college win, according to senior U.S. officials briefed on the Saturday exchange. Then, 25 minutes into what was expected to be an hour-long call, Trump abruptly ended it."

Trump informed Turnbull that "This was the worst call (to world leaders today) by far."

Nixon blamed Deep Throat for his downfall.
