Plus, we'll ask about today's judgement throwing out an emoluments suit for lack of standing. Then, do you know where the candidates stand on foreign policy?

After an update on the day's news which included Trump's signing an Executive Order designed to sabotage the Affordable Care Act, we welcomed Howie Klein back to the show. It's DCCC week, a program that the DCCC uses to help mostly Blue Dogs and New Dems.
