Very disturbing news this morning from Britain, where Prime Minister Theresa May has just announced it's "highly likely" Russia is responsible for the poisoning of ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal earlier this month -- with a deadly military-grade nerve agent.

LONDON — Prime Minister Theresa May said Monday that British investigators had concluded it was "highly likely" that Russia was responsible for the poison attack that left a Russian double agent and his daughter comatose on a park bench last week.

The British leader said the police had identified the poison as a “military-grade nerve agent of a type developed by Russia.”

She warned that Russia has either engaged in a direct attack against Britain or has lost control of the nerve agent it developed.

Skripal and his daughter were discovered in a comatose state in the British city of Salisbury, on a bench near a shopping center, and 21 other people have now been treated for symptoms of nerve agent poisoning.

Russia is responding as expected:

So far, not a word about it from our so-called president.
