The News Roundup

More women came forward this week with allegations of sexual misconduct against Senate candidate Roy Moore. The reputation of Republicans rides on their ability to pass a new tax reform bill that looks more like a takedown of the Affordable Care Act. Zimbabwe's military has placed President Robert Mugabe under house arrest. A huge far-right nationalist march disrupted an annual independence celebration in Poland. And Australia voted to legalize same-sex marriage. Joining us to discuss the week's domestic news is Ron Elving, senior editor and correspondent for NPR; Eliana Johnson, White House reporter for Politico; and Jonathan Capehart, Pulitzer Prize-winning opinion writer at The Washington Post. Our guests for the international hour are Demetri Sevastopulo, Washington bureau chief for the Financial Times; Indira Lakshmanan, Washington columnist for The Boston Globe; and Scott Tong, a correspondent for Marketplace.
