The Farm Bill and Its Impact on California In a rare show of bipartisanship, Congress passed a five-year farm bill today with the Senate expected to follow suit. It's been stalled for two years and it authorizes almost a trillion dollars for farm subsidies and nutrition programs. We hear from a reporter who's been following the story and from the owner of a family farm.
Trump, the GOP and the rule of law Conservatives — and some Republicans — are criticizing the President for "the mess he made" in firing FBI Director James Comey. We hear about a potential successor, the possibility of "obstruction of justice" and the constitutional separation of powers.
Will the GOP weather the storm with Trump or jump ship? Breitbart news claims that the GOP "establishment" has it's knives out" for President Trump, but Republicans in Congress are mostly supportive… at least in public. We look at whether that's likely to last.

As he praised the accomplishments of the graduates, he listed some of his own… and made reference to reports that he leaked intelligence to the Russians and tried to shut down an FBI Investigation into his associates.
