Sunday on State of the Union

Britain raises its terror threat level in response to ISIS’s growing influence in Iraq and Syria. Should the U.S. do the same?  Does President Obama have a strategy? Congressman Dutch Ruppersberger – #2 on the House Intelligence Committee – and Congressman Adam Kinzinger – Iraq war veteran and member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee – join us live in studio.

Russia crosses the border into Ukraine, but Obama rules out U.S. military intervention to stop them. Senator Robert Menendez – Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee – joins us live from the Ukrainian capital of Kiev.

Texas Governor Rick Perry beefs up his legal team to fight a felony indictment. Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay was also indicted by the Travis County Grand Jury – and he’ll join us live to discuss.

And is Mitt Romney prepared to run if Republican leaders push him? We'll get our roundtable's take, including the view of one of his advisers in 2012. Lanhee Chen, Penny Lee, Marc Lamont Hill, and Kristen Soltis Anderson join us.

Watch Sunday 9am and Noon ET on CNN.

SOTU Scoop

By CNN's Tracey Webb

Your daily scoop of what State of the Union is watching today, August 29, 2014.

1. The terror threat. The British government has raised its terror threat level from "substantial" to "severe," in response to the actions of ISIS in Iraq and Syria. While raising the threat level means a terrorist attack is highly likely, Britain's Home Secretary Theresa May said "there is no intelligence to suggest that an attack is imminent." Prime Minister David Cameron said Islamic extremism is the "root cause" of the terrorist threat in the UK, and that ISIS' fight in Syria and Iraq "is not some foreign conflict thousands of miles from home that we can hope to ignore." Cameron added that he would soon announce plans to keep jihadist sympathizers from traveling to Syria and make it easier to seize their passports. The ISIS fighter who murdered American James Foley is believed to be from Britain, and British authorities estimate that 500 UK nationals have gone to Iraq and Syria to fight alongside Islamic groups.
