We’re going to be covering some of the top stories of the week in this hour of Radio Times. First, we’ll talk about the looming government shut down over funding for the border wall that led to a highly contentious meeting among President Trump, Sen. Minority Leader Schumer, and Speaker Pelosi on Tuesday. NPR’s TAMARA KEITH will lay out the stalemate and give us the latest. Then, TREVOR POTTER, president of the Campaign Legal Center will join us to discuss the latest revelations about Trump’s hush money payment to Stormy Daniels and if their agreement violates campaign finance law. Finally, we’ll talk to DANA MILBANK of the Washington Post about the President’s search for a new Chief of Staff following the announcement of John Kelly’s departure from that position.
