Political Roundup: Emails Fuel Speculation About Russian Involvement In Election

Houston Matters breaks down the week’s biggest political stories with an eye for how they might affect Houston and Texas.

It’s time again for the Houston Matters weekly political roundup with analysis of national, state, and local political stories with an eye to how it all might affect Houston and Texas.

This week we discuss Donald Trump Jr.’s 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer that seems to show the President’s oldest son entertained an offer of Russian government help for his father in the November Election. Plus, former Texas Comptroller Susan Combs is headed to a federal government appointment.

Joining us to break down these and other developments in the political world are three guests: Andrew Schneider, politics and government reporter for News 88.7, Jeremi Suri from the University of Texas Department of History, and David Branham, professor of political science at the University of Houston-Downtown.
