Georgians In Washington Push Back Against Trump

On this edition of Political Rewind, two prominent Georgians push back against President Trump: FBI Director Chris Wray defends the honor of his agency in response to Trump's Twitter attacks, and Congressman John Lewis says he won't attend the opening of a Mississippi civil rights museum if Donald Trump shows up. Plus, will Al Franken's resignation from the U.S. Senate put more pressure on Republicans to speak out against those in their own party accused of sexual harassment? Georgia's own Newt Gingrich says no way. And, Georgia House Speaker David Ralston warns that giving local communities control over Confederate memorials would be divisive.

Journalist Steve Twomey On Pearl Harbor

We’re commemorating the 76th anniversary of the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor this week by revisiting our conversation with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Steve Twomey. His book “ Countdown to Pearl Harbor: The Twelve Days to the Attack ” is out now in paperback . Our conversation is an eye-opening look at the mistakes, misconceptions and miscommunications that prevented U.S. forces from recognizing that the American fleet at Pearl Harbor would be the target of a massive Japanese attack. Today it is unthinkable that a Japanese fleet would have been able to cross the Pacific Ocean undetected. But back in 1941, that’s exactly what happened: 30 Japanese ships sailed 3,151 miles for 12 days without ever being seen. Twomey explains what measures the Japanese took in order to keep their plans a secret. Twomey also tells us stories about what it was like to be on both sides of the attack. We hear about the moment Admiral Husband Kimmel found out that the Pacific Fleet was under attack.

On this edition of Political Rewind, Keisha Lance Bottoms declares victory in a mayor’s race decided by fewer than 800 votes, but Mary Norwood wants a recount. Could the results be overturned? We’ll also look at whether the results of special legislative elections suggest a shifting balance of power under the Gold Dome. Plus, our panel weighs in on President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, a move that may throw any chance for peace in the Middle East into chaos.

Atlanta Mayoral Candidates Spar In Final Debate

On this edition of "Political Rewind," did President Donald Trump admit to obstructing justice on Twitter? Also, the controversial Republican tax reform bill passes the Senate, but it does not include a measure that would have benefited Georgia-based Delta Air Lines. The Supreme Court gets set to hear the so-called “wedding cake” case. How will the ruling impact Georgia, a state that continues to flirt with passing a religious liberty statute and one that has a large LGBT community? Plus, the two candidates for Atlanta mayor spar over race, party affiliation and a host of other topics in their final debate, and one of them brings in two heavyweights from Washington to boost her support. Will it all make a difference in the final hours before election day?
