Jul 31, 2017

Today on “Political Rewind,” it's not over ‘til it's over. President Trump indicates he's not ready to let go of the health care issue and sends his OMB Director Mick Mulvaney out to say that Congress shouldn't even think about going home until they get something done. What happens next?

Will things change at the White House as John Kelly takes over Reince Priebus' job as Chief of Staff? Here's one indication: during our broadcast, the New York Times reported that Anthony Scaramucci is OUT as Communications Director, due to a request from Kelly!

Other stories include Mitch McConnell's interest in the Alabama senatorial race, Sally Yates' warning about the Justice Department, and the upcoming Georgia governor's race.
