Political Rewind: Cohen Hearing, Abortion Bill and Kemp Healthcare Plan Moves Forward

Feb 27, 2019

On this edition of Political Rewind, President Donald Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen is continuing his appearance before the House Oversight Committee on capitol hill. Have we learned anything new from his public testimony? Meanwhile, the President is in Hanoi meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.


Georgia legislators now have two measures before them that are likely to spark intense controversy. One would make abortions after the 6th week of pregnancy illegal. The other paves the way for casino gambling in the state. Our panel weighs in on the chances of each bill to pass.

Plus, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle react to the Senate's passage of Gov. Kemp’s patients first act. And Georgia's new first lady launches an initiative aimed at confronting sex trafficking.
