Venezuela; Russia/Trump ties; Iran Nuclear Deal

Listen 00:49:27

Demonstrations in Venezuela against President Nicholas Maduro this week have left three people dead. Opposition leaders accuse the President of creating a dictatorship and have called for more marches in Caracas. We start this hour getting an update on the anti-government protests from BRIAN ELLSWORTH, Reuters correspondent based in Caracas.  Then, SCOTT SHANE, reporter for The New York Times, discusses his recent story about how a trip to Moscow last year by former Trump aide, Carter Page, prompted the FBI’s investigation into Russia/Trump campaign ties. In our final segment, we look at the future of the Iran Nuclear Deal and the White House announcement this week that it will be reviewing it. Marty talks with ROBIN WRIGHT, a journalist, author, and joint fellow at the U.S. Institute of Peace and the Woodrow Wilson International Center.
