Politics Day: Trump Campaign Revelations and a Terror Attack in New York

Nov 1, 2017

A terror attack in New York, new revelations about the Trump campaign's possible collusion with Russian officials, and a stalled plan for tax reform are all covered on this edition of Politics Day on River to River

Host Ben Kieffer talks with Wayne Moyer, Rosenfield Professor of Political Science at Grinnell College, and Tim Hagle, University of Iowa Associate Professor of Political Science. 

Hagle says that even though George Papadopoulos may have been an unimportant figure in the Trump campaign, his guilty plea does not look good for the Trump campaign. 

"You can be a volunteer in a campaign and sometimes you'll get in a meeting with the candidate or the president, and it doesn't mean anything. But it's important because he was a part of the campaign and looking for opposition research," says Hagle.
