The Brexit vote; US Rep Chaka Fattah’s corruption conviction

Listen 00:48:45

Guests: Aaron Moselle, David Rennie, Richard Deeg

Tomorrow, Britons will vote on whether the United Kingdom will stay or leave the European Union.  The “Brexit,” as it’s been called, has been hotly contested as people debate what an exit might mean for the country’s economy and identity.  Last week, a man fatally shot and stabbed Jo Cox, a Parliament member who supported remaining with the EU.  In this hour of Radio Times, DAVID RENNIE, the Washington bureau chief and Lexington columnist of The Economist, and RICHARD DEEG, professor of Political Science and senior associate dean for Faculty and Research in the College of Liberal Arts at Temple University discuss Britain’s “Brexit” vote and what either outcome might mean for the United Kingdom, Europe and the global economy.  But first, U.S. Representative Chaka Fattah, (PA-D) has been found guilty in a federal court of corruption charges including bribery, money laundering and racketeering.  Marty talks with WHYY’s AARON MOSELLE and DAVE DAVIES about the trial, the conviction and Fattah’s legacy.
