Today, we hear from Progressives in the thick of it, with Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal and Representative Ro Khanna, both leaders of the House Progressive Caucus, put on the spot by Thom's thoughtful callers on the issues of today, and what tomorrow's next thing may be.

Congresswoman Jayapal gives her views- how do members of Congress plan to respond to a lawless president who is convicting himself right out in the open? What about the abandonment of the Kurds? What is the real cost if we don't pursue Medicare For All?

Then, Ro Khanna weighs in on the power of the congress - the chances of pressing for contempt of congress for executive branch officials who disrespect hearings, the extent of congress's war powers and power of the purse... and the ability to enforce impeachment - are we in a constitutional crisis already? Should Democratic presidential nominees be taking large corporate donations? And what about the superdelagates?
