Episode 83: Trump Taunts National Emergency
We are officially in the longest government shutdown in American history. As Congressional Democrats and the White House fail to make to any movement on a compromise, President Trump threatens to declare a national emergency to obtain funding for his border wall.
We also examine the disturbing news by the New York Times that the FBI opened an investigation into President Trump to determine if he was secretly working for Russia. Most Sunday news treated this news as just another piece of White House chaos. Meet the Press was the only show to explain the gravity of the Times’ reporting.
