Congressman Patrick McHenry (R-NC) will be on the show today. Among the topics we'll discuss is the anti-BDS resolution the House passed.

The House of Representatives on Tuesday voted to approve a non-binding resolution that opposes the boycott movement against Israel, a measure that won broad bipartisan support but faced pushback from some high-profile progressives.
The vote was 398 to 17.
The resolution was introduced inMarch, not long after Democrats faced a bruising internal debate over how to handle comments and tweets by Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar that were criticized as being anti-Semitic, exposing the divide within the Democratic Party over Israel and US policy towards the country.

We'll also discuss the Mueller hearing, and maybe the rat population in Baltimore.
