Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Progressive Democrat REP. BARBARA LEE of California -- the only member of Congress to vote against the Authorization for the Use of Military Force (or AUMF) after 9/11 " joins us to discuss her new bill to mobilize resources to focus on addressing the disproportionate impacts of climate change on women and girls around the world. Rep. Lee, a former co-chair of the Progressive Caucus in the House, discusses whether House Speaker Paul Ryan will ever allow a measure to be brought up for a vote to protect DACA recipients ("Dreamers") facing imminent deportation, or a vote to repeal the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force. Also: overnight, Congress ended the second government shutdown of the year by passing a new government spending bill containing up to $500 billion in new military and domestic spending " but not before it was singlehandedly held up by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who accused his fellow Republicans of intellectual dishonesty [and] hypocrisy" for increasing deficit spending, despite Pauls own vote to pass the GOPs massive, deficit-exploding tax cuts. New developments in the resignation of White House Staff Secretary Rob Porter following allegations of domestic violence: reports that dozens of staffers, like Porter and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, are handling classified information without full security clearances, despite Trump and the GOP running an entire presidential campaign hypocritically and falsely attacking Hillary Clinton on national security issues. A Democratic congressman explains how and why a national security investigation is warranted to determine what both Kelly and Trump knew about the "eminently blackmailable" Porter.   Brad Friedman, Rep.
