    Washington Week [#5648] * The federal investigation into Russian meddling in the U.S. presidential election reached President Trump's innermost circle Thursday. The Washington Post reported that the president's senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner is a focus of investigations and officials believe he has information relevant to their ongoing probe into potential ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. Kushner has not been accused of wrongdoing, but he is now the only current White House official considered key to the investigation. The FBI is still interested in former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
    * Congressional inquiries continue to move ahead as well. Fired FBI Director James Comey is set to testify next week. Earlier this week, former CIA Director John Brennan testified about interactions between the Trump campaign and Russia - but stopped short of calling it collusion.
    *All this is unfolding as the president is wrapping up his first foreign trip. At the NATO summit, Trump was forced to mend fences with British Prime Minister Theresa May after the UK stopped sharing intelligence about the recent terror attack with the United States. < br>Robert Costa will get an update on stories from Washington to Italy with: Adam Entous of The Washington Post, Vivian Salama of the Associated Press, Peter Baker of The New York Times, and Erica Werner of the Associated Press.

    American Umpire This thought-provoking documentary about US foreign policy chronicles how the United States became the world's policeman and questions how long the US must continue to play this role. Narrated by Jim Lehrer and written by award-winning historian Elizabeth Cobbs, the film explores the history of American military intervention and the future of America's military commitment abroad.
    After detailing the principles that guided US foreign policy for 150 years and the sea change that followed WWII, the latter half of the documentary examines America's contemporary role on the international stage. The film concludes by asking whether it's time to rethink our current policies, scale down military spending, and bring our allies back into the game as fellow umpires.
    The program combines archival footage with candid interviews from former secretaries of state George Shultz, Madeleine Albright and Condoleeza Rice; General Jim Mattis and Lt. General Karl Eikenberry, former US Ambassador to Afghanistan; Nobel Prize winner Michael Spence; Pulitzer Prize winner David Kennedy; and eight scholars from around the world.
