CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER — Syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer says President Obama's new sanctions against Russia stem from a god complex. The commander in chief expelled 35 Russian diplomats and sanctioned nine individuals and entities on Thursday due to "significant malicious cyber-enabled activities" during the U.S. presidential election. Mr. Krauthammer told a panel on "Special Report" that the timing of the sanctions -- months after the alleged attacks -- is "ridiculous."... (more)
