Friday, September 20, 2019: Trump Downplays Whistleblower Complaint Ahead of News Conference

Thursday, September 19, 2019: A Top Secret Spy Drama Grips Washington

Did President Trump make a reckless promise to a foreign leader? A whistleblower thinks so, and the intelligence community inspector general who deemed the complaint urgent gives select members of Congress a classified briefing, but offers little information. Plus, two big shakeups by struggling 2020 Democratic contenders -- Kamala Harris goes all in on Iowa and Bernie Sanders juggles staff in two early states. And it's still unclear whether Congress can compromise over new gun violence laws. But Beto O'Rourke's call for a mandatory buyback of assault weapons is already an attack line for conservative Republicans on the ballot in 2020. On Today's Panel: Catherine Lucey with The Wall Street Journal, Toluse Olorunnipa with The Washington Post, Melanie Zanona with POLITICO, Lisa Lerer with The New York Times, CNN's Kylie Atwood

Wednesday, September 18, 2019: Trump Slaps Sanctions on Iran as Pompeo Arrives in Saudi Arabia

Tuesday, September 17, 2019: House Dems Putting Former Trump Campaign Manager in Impeachment Spotlight

House Democrats are about to hold what some call their first impeachment hearing. And the White House is defiant, telling two former presidential aides not to show up -- and a third Trump adviser not to answer certain questions. Plus, Elizabeth Warren takes aim at Joe Biden and the electability argument. And then she takes 4,000 selfies. And President Trump's numbers among Latino voters are horrible, but he insists he can stretch the map again in 2020 -- and win New Mexico. Today's Panel: CNN's Nia-Malika Henderson, Olivier Knox with SiriusXM, Karoun Demirjian with The Washington Post, and Margaret Talev with Axios Also on the Program: CNN's Manu Raju, MJ Lee, and Oren Liebermann

Monday, September 16, 2019: Oil Prices Spike After Saudi Attack

Oil prices are up and the Middle East is on edge following attacks on Saudi Arabia's energy infrastructure. The Trump Administration blames Iran - and the President says the U.S. is locked and loaded. Plus, the recurring presidential credibility question: Aides rush to say "locked and loaded" doesn't necessarily mean a military response. And the President insists he never said something that he said clearly - on camera - and was then repeated by cabinet members. And nearly 50,000 auto workers in nine states go on strike. General Motors says it has made a fair offer, workers see it differently. Today's Panel: CNN's Kylie Atwood and Manu Raju, Jackie Kucinich with The Daily Beast, Rachael Bade with The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal's Michael Bender and Greg Ip. Also on the Program: CNN's MJ Lee, and Kalea Hall with The Detroit News

Friday, September 13, 2019: Dem Opponents Called Out for Questioning Biden's Memory

Fallout today from a feisty 10-candidate Democratic debate. Joe Biden mixes it up with Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders on health care, and two contenders who made Biden's age and stamina an issue last night stage a hasty retreat the morning after. Plus, Beto O'Rourke adds a "hell yes" when asked if he would push a mandatory buy back of assault weapons. It is a line that could help him in the Democratic primary, but a position most Democrats see as an impossible sell in a general election. And President Trump gets in a few jabs at his potential Democratic opponents in a speech at the GOP retreat in Baltimore. On today's panel: Julie Pace with Associated Press, CNN's Jeff Zeleny, Michael Shear with The New York Times, and Tarini Parti with The Wall Street Journal

Thursday, September 12, 2019: Debate Fight Night

It is debate night for the 2020 Democrats, the first time Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren share the same stage, and perhaps a last chance for some of the struggling contenders to prove to voters and donors they deserve to stick around. Plus, a big Supreme Court immigration win for the Trump White House. The justices allow the President's tough new asylum rules to be enforced while a legal challenge makes it way through the lower courts. And words matter. Except maybe when it comes to House Democrats. Do they have a formal impeachment investigation or just a lower level inquiry to determine whether to move to an impeachment investigation? It depends on who and how you ask. Today's panel: CNN's Kaitlan Collins, Franco Ordoñez with NPR, CNN's Arlette Saenz , Karoun Demirjian with The Washington Post, CNN's Joan Biskupic and CNN's Sara Murray.

Wednesday, September 11, 2019: Trump Takes Victory Lap After NC Election

Republicans celebrate a win in a close House special election in North Carolina, but with victory comes more proof the President's unpopularity in the suburbs is a drag on Republican candidates across America. Plus, it may be the third debate for 2020 Democrats but it's the first time Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren share the stage. New poll numbers show the Massachusetts senator is, at the moment, a rising threat to the former vice president. And three key Senators say there's more hope on passing gun legislation after a meaningful phone call with the President.
