The News Roundup

This week has certainly given us news cycle whiplash. Domestically, we learned of President Trump's desire to fire Robert Mueller, witnessed a government shutdown and near immediate reopening, and heard the powerful testimony of many U.S. Olympic gymnasts as they detailed the sexual abuses they suffered at the hands of Dr. Larry Nassar. On the international front, Syria found itself on the defensive after Turkish troops invaded the north as Damascus called America's plan for an open-ended military presence in Syria "a devastating mistake." Catch up on all of this and more on The News Roundup. | Want to support 1A? Subscribe to our podcast and give to your local public radio station at Email the show at
