Coming up on Washington Week with The Atlantic:

Congressional Dysfunction:  House Republicans have been fighting amongst themselves over the federal budget as a possible government shutdown looms. In the midst of this, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy visited Capitol Hill this to appeal to Congress to provide critical weapons and support, which has also been met with some GOP resistance.

And, with days until Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley retires, the Senate overcame GOP Sen. Tommy Tuberville’s months-long hold on military promotions and confirmed Gen. Charles Q. Brown Jr. to fill the U.S. military’s top job.

Joining editor in chief of The Atlantic and moderator Jeffrey Goldberg to discuss this and more:

  • Steve Inskeep, host, “Morning Edition” on NPR, and author, Differ We Must
  • Manu Raju, Chief Congressional Correspondent, and host, “Inside Politics with Manu Raju,” CNN
  • Vivian Salama, Reporter, The Wall Street Journal

Major funding for “Washington Week” is provided by Consumer Cellular, the estate of Arnold Adams, the Yuen Foundation, Sandra and Carl DeLay-Magnuson, Rose Hirschel and Andy Shreeves, Robert and Susan Rosenbaum, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and PBS.
