Thursday, March 27, 2014
Since Russia annexed Crimea, relations with the U.S. are...strained. Angela Stent, Georgetown professor and fellow at the Brookings Institution, looks at the U.S.-Russia relationship as it stands now. Plus: New York State Senator Diane Savino talks about the state's budget negotiations and her support for legalized medical marijuana; reports of prisoner abuse and a high proportion of mentally ill inmates at the jail on Rikers Island; a Lutheran pastor on his work to establish a Palestinian community in Bethlehem; and reactions to a just-released internal review of the Bridgegate scandal that was conducted by Governor Christie's lawyers.
