The News Roundup

It's been a week with a high Russian character count, "nothing burgers," an iceberg the size of Delaware and whether Venus Williams can reign supreme again at Wimbledon. Also, Iraq marks a major moment, Brazil sends its former president to prison, President Trump has a high-profile visit to Paris and the Vatican declares the body of Christ cannot be gluten-free. Two panels of journalists join Joshua Johnson for analysis of the week's top news stories. Discussing domestic news is Stephen Dinan, political editor at The Washington Times, Amy Walter, national editor for Cook Political Report and Fernando Pizarro, Washington correspondent at Univision. Discussing international news is Shane Harris, senior writer at The Wall Street Journal, Yeganeh Torbati, foreign policy reporter at Reuters and Nick Schifrin, special correspondent at PBS NewsHour.
