    There has been an ongoing effort to paint those who question the official narrative on the chemical attack in Douma as apologists and propagandists for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. This was front and center in a recent hit piece published by The Times targeting British academics. Piers Robinson, Chair in Politics, Society and Political Journalism at The University of Sheffield, joins Garland and Lee to give his take on this troubling trend.

    A recent prison brawl in South Carolina lasted for over seven hours and left seven inmates dead. Jamie Lovegrove, a political reporter for the Post and Courier in Columbia, South Carolina, joins the show to discuss this horrible event. Additionally, Jamie will talk about the impact that two prominent South Carolina politicians, Nikki Haley and Lindsey Graham, have had on President Trump's foreign policy.

    For the final segment of the show, former Congressman Alan Grayson of Florida returns to Fault Lines to give his thoughts on the recent airstrikes in Syria. Did this decision require Congressional approval, or was the Trump administration within its right to undertake these actions?
