After Bipartisan Push, Trump Signs 'Seriously Flawed' Russia Sanctions Bill

Aug 2, 2017

Today on “Political Rewind,” President Trump signs the Russian sanctions bill, but gripes that parts of it are "clearly unconstitutional." What are his reservations?

Also on the show today: a New York Times report says the old debate over affirmative action may be back as relates to college admissions; Georgia Sen. David Perdue is pushing a new bill to slash legal immigration; and Atlanta attorney Chris Wray is confirmed as new FBI director.

In Georgia politics, state lawmakers are poised to make a move on Medicaid expansion while a national bill remains stalled.

Finally, the panel takes up the NPR story about claims that the Trump administration was involved in getting the Seth Rich story on the air at Fox News.
