Here and Now

April 9, 2018: Hour 1

In hour one of Here & Now's April 9, 2018 full broadcast, the Assad regime is suspected of carrying out a chemical attack on a rebel held town over the weekend, a charge Syria says is fabricated. We discuss the latest developments and the Trump administration's possible response with the BBC's Lina Sinjab. Also, why did Robert Mercer — the influential donor in conservative politics who helped President Trump get elected, and the New York billionaire behind Cambridge Analytica — become a volunteer member of a police force in a tiny New Mexico town? And we preview Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's much-anticipated testimony before Congress this week with The Atlantic's Derek Thompson.
