Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Did Donald Trump, his campaign or the Trump Organization violate federal law in paying hush money to a porn star? PAUL S. RYAN of Common Cause joins us to discuss the two complaints filed on Monday with the Federal Elections Commission and the Justice Department relating to allegations that Trump's attorney, Michael Cohen, paid $130,00 via a shell company to buy the silence of adult film actress Stephanie Clifford (aka Stormy Daniels) just before the 2016 Presidential election. Ryan's complaints contend that the alleged payout appears to have violated campaign finance laws as an unlawful, unreported in-kind donation by the Trump campaign. He also explains whether the White House violated any laws in using a partisan outgoing voice message on the White House comment line during the shutdown; a court ruling ordering an immediate re-drawing of Pennsylvanias heavily gerrymandered districts; and ethical questions surrounding U.S. Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuchs activities with Republican Senators and members of Trump's cabinet. Also: yet another deadly school shooting, this time in rural Kentucky - the 283rd school shooting since 2013. An apparent Trump supporter is arrested for repeated death threats against CNN staff, in the wake of Trumps continued targeting of the news network as fake news. More details examining why Senate Democrats caved on Monday in their government shutdown standoff with Trump and Republicans, and why we are likely heading to another shutdown/cave in just over two weeks. Plus Desi Doyen with the latest 'Green News Report' on a deadly natural gas rig explosion in Oklahoma, Trumps new tariffs on solar panels, and the U.S. Treasury withholding disaster relief funds intended for Puerto Rico.  Brad Friedman, Paul S. Ryan, Desi Doyen
