Hours after President Trump's latest round of tariffs, China responds with levies of its own. Who stands to win and who stands to lose in an escalating trade war?  And how - and when – will American consumers and businesses get the payoff - or feel the pain?  The latest fallout from the Trump administration's tariffs.

Bob Woodward talks with Terry about his new book Fear: Trump in the White House.  He writes, “The reality was that the U.S. in 2017 was tethered to the words and actions of an emotionally overwrought, mercurial and unpredictable leader.  Members of his staff had joined to purposefully block what they believed were the president’s most dangerous impulses.” Join us.

The Inspector General of the Department of Justice, Michael Horowitz, released a report last week that examined allegations of political bias within the F-B-I. The investigation came after text messages sent by one F-B-I agent before the 2016 election was seen by many as a sign of bias against then-candidate Donald Trump. Monday, Horowitz, along with F-B-I director Christopher Wray took questions from the Senate Judiciary Committee about those findings, and the inspector general meets the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday.

In the wake of the protests by neo-Nazis and white supremacists that turned deadly in Charlottesville, Virginia, President Donald Trump has come under fire for not immediately and clearly condemning American racists.

This week, through interviews with key Trump supporters and advisers, we explore if we should have seen Charlottesville coming and if we should expect more race-based clashes on the way.  

The Constitutional Case for Impeachment

Feb 28, 2017

Donald Trump, both personally and politically, is deeply unpopular with a wide swath of Americans. That’s not a basis for impeachment, but there does appear to be one in the US Constitution.

With a strong Republican majority controlling both houses of Congress, it may not be surprising that no individual representative has yet come forward to argue for impeachment. But Norman Solomon, co-chair of the Mill Valley-based Grass Roots Coalition for Grass Roots Progress, says there has been one preliminary step taken.

President-elect Donald Trump will hold a press conference Wednesday morning January 11, 2017. It is scheduled to begin at 8 am PT, and it will air on KRCB-FM. The special coverage will be hosted by Robert Siegel, who will be joined by National Political Correspondent Mara Liasson, White House Correspondent Tamara Keith, as well as National Security Correspondent Mary Louise Kelly and Business Editor Marilyn Geewax.
