News. Views. Hughes - January 7, 2020 (17:00 ET)

Republican strategist Chris Neiweem and journalist and “In the Now” host Rania Khalek join Scottie Nell Hughes to discuss the escalation of tensions between Iran and the United States in the aftermath of the assassination of Quds Force Commander Qassem Soleimani.

US Defense Sec. Mark Esper says there was “no decision made to leave Iraq, period” and that the unsigned draft letter sent to Iraq by mistake “does not constitute a policy change.” Iraq’s Foreign Ministry has lodged a complaint with the UN. RT America’s Rachel Blevins joins News.Views.Hughes with the details.

After his flamboyant attempt to scale the gate of Venezuela’s Parliament for the election, presidential aspirant Juan Guaido was allowed in on Monday. Rival and parliamentary speaker Luis Parra's legitimacy remains in dispute and Guaido supporters have branded him a "traitor." Meanwhile, US Vice President Mike Pence and State Sec. Mike Pompeo have reiterated Washington’s support for Guaido in his claim to the presidency. RT America's Sara Montes de Oca reports for News.Views.Hughes.
