9 a.m.- 1A with Joshua Johnson
Does Roy Moore’s campaign for Senate have a future? More women came forward this week with allegations of sexual misconduct with a minor against the former Alabama judge and outspoken evangelical. And more Republican lawmakers came forward to say they believe the women and that Moore should remove himself from the race. Moore says all of the claims are false.
The reputation of Republicans is also riding on their ability to pass a new tax reform bill that looks more like a takedown of the Affordable Care Act. Can the majority party get tax reform done?
Plus, more lives taken in another mass shooting, another hearing with Attorney General Jeff Sessions on the Hill and Mattel celebrates Muslim women with a new Barbie doll.
