Politics News Roundup - April 19, 2024


It's time for our weekly politics roundtable.

We'll start things off, we'll discuss a U.S. Supreme Court case revolving around an Indiana bribery that could affect the corruption trial of former Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan. We'll hear about what's questioned in terms of law, and the potential ramifications of the results.

Then, we'll focus on House Speaker Mike Johnson's attempts to push forward a package that would advance aid to Ukraine, Israel and Gaza.
