3/2/15 Podcast Steve Roberts

It is quite the lesson in political science, but Congress has found itself in a bit of a pickle over the DHS funding bill. Closest to the heat is House Speaker John Boehner, who if he allows for a “clean” DHS funding bill to be put on the floor, may still not be able to get it passed, and would infuriate his conservative caucus to boot. But what are the options, as the entire issue is revisited this week? Steve explains the political forces at work in a complicatedly divided Capitol Hill. Steve can also talk about last week’s CPAC gathering, though there weren’t really any surprises.

3/2/15 Podcast Mary Bruce

Lawmakers bought themselves a little time, exactly one week in fact, to figure out the DHS funding matter. However, the week’s session will get off to a lousy start, with Democrats claiming they have a deal that Speaker Boehner would put a clean funding bill on the floor, while Republicans say there is no such deal.

2/27/15 Podcast Ali Weinberg

Funding for the Department of Homeland Security runs out at the end of the day Friday. If no deal is reached, essential security personnel would still report to work, but there would be no money to pay them during the funding lapse… that’s the vast majority of the 243,000 agency employees. There may have been some developments in the Senate Thursday night, and Ali will have the latest for you this morning.

2/27/15 Podcast Devin Dwyer

The ISIS terrorist who has become known as “Jihadi John” and shown in brutal execution videos has been identified as Mohammed Emwazi, a Kuwaiti national from a West London suburb. British authorities had wanted to keep it secret for operational reasons and what they were trying to do was to lure him into calling home, thinking he would call back to his family in West London and perhaps they would be able to track down his location in Syria. President Obama is vowing to get this man and bring him to justice.
