    On this episode of Fault Lines, hosts Garland Nixon and Lee Stranahan discuss the first 'State Dinner' hosted by President Trump. French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte visited the White House as Syria and the Iran Nuclear Deal were front and center on the policy front.

    Scheduled Guests: (Show 7-10 AM ET)

    Elizabeth Vos — Co-Founder & Editor-in-Chief of Disobedient Media | Topic: Academic or Intelligence Asset: Who is Joseph #Mifsud?

    Elbert Guillory — Former State Senator from Louisiana | Topic: Starbucks Arrests and Our Cultural Moment

    Kani Xulam — Founder and Director of Kurdistan.com | Topic: An Update on the Kurds

    One of the central figures in the Trump-Russia saga who you may have never heard of is Joseph Mifsud. Elizabeth Vos, the Editor-In-Chief of Disobedient Media, joins Garland and Lee to discuss whether Mifsud is simply an academic, or if he is also an intelligence asset.

    Recent arrests, including an incident at Starbucks, have again brought the relationship between cops and minority communities into the spotlight. Former Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory gives his thoughts on these events and why showing respect to officers is critical to avoiding negative interactions with law enforcement.

    The mainstream media rarely mentions the Kurdish people in its coverage of Syria. On today's show, Kani Xulam, the director of Kurdistan.org, returns to Fault Lines to give an update on the current challenges facing the Kurds.
