Meanwhile, the US Navy and Iran had a run-in in the Persian Gulf over a marine drone. The Navy said Iranian Revolutionary Guards attempted to seize the unmanned surveillance vessel in international waters last night. The Iranians released the drone after a four-hour standoff. The incident follows US airstrikes on Iran-backed militias in Syria last week.

Intense renewed fighting raged today in southern Ukraine, a possible sign of a Ukrainian counter-offensive. Kyiv claimed its forces broke through Russian lines around Kherson, a strategic port city on the Dnieper River. Eyewitness video showed what appeared to be ammunition exploding under artillery fire. Ukraine said it destroyed bridges and ammunition depots. The Russians said they repelled the attacks.

President Biden tore Republicans apart today over political violence. He traveled to Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, and he exposed GOP lawmakers who attacked the FBI for searching the Trump estate in Florida.

Joe Biden, President of the United States: It’s sickening to see the new attacks on the FBI, threatening the lives of law enforcement officers and their families, simply for enforcing the law and doing their job.
