Evelyn Farkas, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Russia, and Dimitri Simes, CEO and President of The Center for the National Interest, join Christiane Amanpour to discuss the start of Trump's impeachment trial in the senate as the President readies himself for the World Economic Forum in Davos. Simes and Farkas dig down into U.S. relations with Russia and the rest of the world. Steve Inskeep, NPR host, discusses his new book "Imperfect Union," that tells the story of America's first political power couple, John and Jessie Fremont. In 1856 John was the first ever Republican nominee for president and the campaign was dominated by immigration, race, and political demagoguery. Inskeep reflects on the parallels with today's politics. Sarah Hurwitz, White House speechwriter for President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, has turned her focus from politics to Judaism in her book "Here All Along." She sits down with Our Michel Martin to explain why she thinks the Jewish faith, that she was born into, can help us in these divisive times. via Knit
