Interviews with: House Intelligence Committee Member Rep. Mike Turner, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, and Governor of Arkansas Asa Hutchinson.
State of the Union
Aug 14, 2022

First up, Brianna goes one-on-one with the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, Congressman Mike Turner. They discuss the stunning discovery of highly-classified material at former President Trump's home during an FBI search and Republicans' call for Attorney General Garland to justify the investigation. Brianna also presses Rep. Turner on if national security secrets were at risk and whether President Trump broke the law.

Next, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm joins Brianna to discuss the Biden administration's next steps to address the climate crisis after Democrats passed sweeping climate and tax legislation. Brianna also pushes Sec. Granholm over what that law will do to address inflation and lower costs for Americans in the near term.

After, Brianna speaks with Arkansas Republican Governor Asa Hutchinson about the unprecedented FBI search of former President Trump's home and asks whether attacks on the FBI by some Republicans are putting lives at risk. Brianna also presses him on whether Republican-led states that are limiting or banning abortion access need to do more to support mothers and infants.

To close: the panel discusses how FBI search of Trump’s home will impact him politically, as well as Democrats' lingering anxiety about a potential Biden 2024 run despite his recent legislative wins.
