The rapid mess just had a much faster pace. This morning, the European Union's High Court ruled that the UK could unilaterally stop the process of leaving the 28-nation bloc. British Prime Minister Theresa May says the government does not change the course, but the Breix deal, which it has negotiated with, is expected to be voted in parliament tomorrow.

2. Jamal Khashoggi
– I can not breathe. These were the last words that journalist Jamal Husoggi said as a hit from Saudi Arabia killed him. This is according to a source who read a copy of the October murder audition, Nick Robertson of CNN said in extraordinary accountability. The source said it was clear that this was not an unsuccessful attempted kidnapping, as the Saudis have said, and the implementation of a preliminary plan to kill Khashoggi. The transcript also notes that the sounds of his body are dissected from a saw and his assailants are forced to listen to music to block the terrible noise.

President Trump searches for a new chief of staff after the person who is currently in the role – John Kelly – leaves at the end of the year. It was widely expected that Nick Ayers' rising star would take on the task. But Ayers, who serves as head of Mike Pence's headquarters, wants to move his young family back to their native Georgia.

The person who received the job may go into a nightmare, explains Steven Collinson of CNN.
Carlos Ghosn, the former Nissan president, was indicted today in Japan for a scandal about financial abuse, along with Nissan himself.

He was expelled from his position as chairman of Nissan and Mitsubishi Motors. He is also temporarily at the helm of Renault.
