Political Junkie Ken Rudin and Howard Wilkinson discuss the latest news in politics.

The federal government shuts down, and then re-opens, at least for another couple of weeks. President Trump and some members of congress accuse the FBI of bias and hint there is evidence of a "secret society" within the agency. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is questioned by the special counsel’s office as the investigation into Russia’s interference in the presidential election continues. And President Trump is scheduled to make his first State of the Union Address next Tuesday.

Joining us to discuss these and other top political stories are Political Junkie Ken Rudin and WVXU politics reporter Howard Wilkinson.
