Also, Whitney Houston rocketed to stardom when she was in her early 20s, and went on to become one of the best-selling musical artists of all time. But her personal life was bedeviled by drugs, family and marital issues. We talk with the director of the new documentary "Whitney," which explores Houston's life. And Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell successfully blocked President Obama's pick for the Supreme Court in 2016. Now, he's overseeing the confirmation of another. Washington Post senior congressional correspondent Paul Kane tells us more about McConnell's rise to Senate leadership. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's July 11, 2018 full broadcast.
