    On this episode of Fault Lines, hosts Garland Nixon and Lee Stranahan analyze the negative exchanges between President Trump and Congressional Democrats that led to and followed the federal government shutdown.

    Federal offices, National parks, and more have shut down. Healthcare agencies have stopped working to prevent a dangerous flu epidemic. Will a vote scheduled for later today reopen the federal government, or will the impasse continue at great risk to lives and the economy?

    Garland and Lee will also discuss immigration, "Russiagate", racism and other racial issues, conspiracy theories, and President Obama's legacy, as well as other news.
