SCOTUS Begins A New Term; A Second Whistle-Blower Steps Forth

Ryan Caron King

The Supreme Court begins a new session Monday. It will be the first full term since the more conservative Justice Brett Kavanaugh replaced the retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. It's shaping up to be one of the most significant sessions in a long time with the potential to significantly limit reproductive and LGBTQ rights, put DACA recipients at risk for deportation, and expand gun rights. 

Also this hour: An attorney for the whistle-blower concerned that President Trump's July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky posed a national security risk, confirms that he's now representing a second whistle-blower who works in the intelligence community and has first-hand knowledge of the president's actions.
