Since last week’s discussion about sanctions in Turkey, a lot has changed: tensions have risen between the US and Turkey over the latter’s imprisonment of pastor Andrew Brunson, and neither one is backing down. Phil and Cooper recap what’s happened so far and get some perspective from Al-Monitor contributor Ayla Jean Yackley, who’s been covering the situation and joins us from Istanbul.
