Podcast: A Former Lawmaker on Washington’s Dysfunction

Washington feels pretty dysfunctional right now, with the partial government shutdown over a month old. And still, Democrats won’t offer President Donald Trump any wall funding. So how did Washington actually get this way? And how did the Democratic Party move so far left? Today, former Rep. Bob McEwen comments on those questions and explains how his Council for National Policy is uniting conservatives.

We also cover these stories:

  • House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tells Trump he can’t deliver the State of the Union until the government shutdown is over.
  • The White House has renominated 51 people as judicial nominees, after the Senate failed to get them through last year.
  • Juan Guaido, who is president of the Venezuela National Assembly, declared himself head of state, and Trump immediately recognized him as interim president
