    Retiring Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) announces his intention to vote for the Trump Tax legislation after the inclusion of new provisions that personally benefit him, setting the hashtag #CorkerKickBack trending and offering a stark behind the scenes look into how things are done in Congress.

    On this episode of "Fault Lines," hosts Garland Nixon and Lee Stranahan discuss the Trump Tax legislation, set for a final vote this week. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is battling brain cancer and is not expected back in D.C. until in January. Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) is also ailing. With no support from any Democrats, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and President Trump need the votes of every available Republican Senator — including twice-beaten lame duck Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL).

    Garland, Lee, and the guests will also analyze top news stories and issues including the wildfire emergency in California; sexual scandals in politics, the news media, and the entertainment industry; Doug Jones' defeat of Roy Moore in Alabama; the CIA's operations in the Middle East; establishment media failures and abuses; and more.
