Gary Herbert after disagreeing on the process of the 2017 Third Congressional District special election. And Rep. Chris Stewart pays a visit to the legislature to tell lawmakers that the real scandal in Washington isn’t Russian election meddling, but that intelligence agencies are choosing sides in politics.

At 9 a.m. Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporter Luke Ramseth, government and politics editor Dan Harrie and columnist Robert Gehrke join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories.
