Sexual harassment and assault allegations dominated the news--from Hollywood to the halls of congress to the Alabama Senate campaign. Now, Al Franken could go before the Senate Ethics Committee to investigate the Josh Israel, senior investigative reporter for ThinkProgress, joins me to talk all about it.

Medicaid expansion just passed in Maine and people are signing up for Obamacare in droves. Yet, the Senate’s proposed tax bill could send us in the opposite direction on healthcare by eliminating the mandate in Obamacare, and potentially undoing the entire system.

Navigating the White House’s fraught relationship with the press can be a battle. Add to that parsing the latest facts and impacts of the administration’s ties to Russia, and getting to the truth is even more challenging.

Many are celebrating Tuesday’s election as a win for the Democratic Party and a rejection of Trump. Digging deeper, the Virginia contests and the passage of a ballot proposal in Maine are also major affirmations of Obamacare. Russell Berman, who is a senior associate editor at The Atlantic, recently wrote about how these victories are important wins for government health care. He joins us today to talk more about it.

Liberty University is the largest Christian college in America, but many are calling the school’s leader and positions as un-Christian and polarizing.  Think Progress’ Jack Jenkins joins us today to explore the controversy and fallout among Evangelicals.
