    Forum FBI Director Comey Confirms Probe of Russian Election Meddling, Trump Campaign Ties FBI Director James Comey testified during House Intelligence Committee hearings Monday that his agency has for months been investigating Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. Presidential election and possible coordination between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign.

    Forum Partisan Divide Shows as Gorsuch Delivers Message of Unity at Confirmation Hearing Judge Neil Gorsuch, President Trump's nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court, appeared for the first day of his Senate confirmation hearing Monday. Rejecting the notion that judges are "politicians in robes," Judge Gorsuch, a George W. Bush appointee who sits on the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, emphasized the importance of a neutral and independent judiciary. The judge's comments followed four hours of speeches from senators and repeated references by Democrats to what they consider the unfair treatment of Obama-nominee Judge Merrick Garland. We discuss Judge Gorsuch's jurisprudence and the politics surrounding his confirmation.

    Forum New Yorker's Ariel Levy Chronicles an Abundant Life, Devastating Loss in New Memoir "It has been made overwhelmingly clear to me now that anything you think is yours by right can vanish, and what you can do about that is nothing at all." So writes Ariel Levy, who has earned the right to believe that people, and more specifically, women, really cant have it all. The New Yorker staff writer once had a perfect life, which eventually came crashing down with an affair, a miscarriage during a Mongolian reporting trip and the breakup of her marriage. Levy shares these stories -- and some less painful ones about writing for The New Yorker -- and ponders her future in her new memoir, The Rules Do Not Apply." Ariel Levy joins us in-studio to discuss her life and work.

A former clerk to Gorsuch makes the case for why he should be confirmed.
