On this episode of Party Politics, co-hosts Jay Aiyer and Brandon Rottinghaus bring you these hot topics in political news:

  • President Trump's first foreign trip
  • The War on Drugs finds a new front: Attorney General Jeff Sessions v. Senator Kamala Harris on the decriminalization of cannabis
  • The White House threatens to end daily press briefings
  • Can you smell what "The Rock" is cooking? Will Dwayne Johnson win over Trump in 2020? Survey says…maybe!

Then the profs delineate Trump's troubles: firing FBI Director James Comey, Comey’s notes coming to light, leaking intelligence to Russians, and the forming of a special counsel – headed by former FBI Director Robert Mueller – to look into these issues. By the way, don't forget to listen to our weekly Texas-centered episodes, too!

Party Politics is produced by Dacia Clay, Edel Howlin and Laura Lucas. Our audio engineer is Todd Hulslander.
