We return in 2019 in the midst of an historic US government shutdown. Meanwhile, a steady stream of new Democratic candidates are putting up their hands for the 2020 race and the White House has been rocked by allegations in a BuzzFeed News report that the president directed his former lawyer to lie to Congress. Former Bloomberg BNA analyst and research associate with the Council on Foreign Relations in New York, Jared Mondschein, joins the podcast to discuss the high stakes for Trump, the Democrats and the media.
