Episode #5723

KQED 9: Fri, Dec 8, 2017 -- 7:30 PM

On this week's WASHINGTON WEEK, we track major developments on Capitol Hill. Democrats cast out Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., and Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., amid accusations of sexual misconduct, while Republicans rally around Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, who has been accused of pursuing teenagers when he was in his thirities.
President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital has triggered unrest in the region and raised concerns about the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians.
Plus, more revelations from special prosecutor Robert Mueller's investigation and reports a whistleblower told investigators former national security advisor Michael Flynn texted about a Russia nuclear deal during the inauguration.
On Wednesday, President Trump fulfilled a campaign promise, announcing plans to move the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. The decision - which effectively recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital - is drawing widespread international condemnation and further isolates the US from its traditional partners. While Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu proclaims the decision an "important step toward peace," Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas describes the move as "a threat to the future of the peace process" that kills Trump's plans to broker the "ultimate deal," peace in the Middle East.
Elsewhere, repercussions from Flynn's plea deal and cooperation with special prosecutor Robert Mueller continue to raise questions about contact between the Trump transition team and Russian officials. The president's loyalty to the former four-star general is being tested by revelations Flynn was discussing a Russia nuclear deal with an associate on inauguration day.
During a House Intelligence Committee meeting, Donald Trump Jr. refused to share details about a meeting at Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer during the campaign.
And just days after civil rights icon and the longest-serving member of the House, Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., announced his immediate retirement from Congress, Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., announced he would resign his seat at the end of the year, both in response to accusations of sexual misconduct.
Meanwhile, in Alabama, Republican candidate Roy Moore is tied or moving ahead in polls for the Alabama Senate race despite ongoing accusations of sexual misconduct with teenagers as young as 14. After initially pulling their support for Moore in response to the accusations, the RNC followed up President Donald Trump's endorsement by restoring its financial support for Moore's campaign. Former chief White House strategist Steve Bannon gave Moore another boost during a rally this week where he slammed the Republican establishment as "cowards," and directed some nasty jabs at 2012 GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz.
Robert Costa discusses the ongoing Russian probe, Trump's Jerusalem decision, and what the stark difference between the treatment of Roy Moore and his Democratic rivals means for the State of Alabama and the nation with:
Peter Baker of the New York Times
Andrea Mitchell of NBC News
Yamiche Alcindor of the New York Times
Philip Rucker of the Washington Post
