  • Is there finally a deal coming together on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals?

  • More revelations in the Hillary Clinton/Democratic National Committee/Trump/Russia saga
  • Will we find out something we didn’t know from JFK documents that President Trump released?
  • Former Presidents get together at fundraiser for natural disasters
And finally, the profs get their heads around what the future of the Republican party may look like now that Senator Jeff Flake (R-Ariz) and Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) are not seeking re-election. Remember we’ve also got weekly Texas-centered episodes, too that you can find on iTunes!
