Kansas City's Northeast Newscast
Northeast Newscast Episode 17 - a political discussion w/ Congressman Emanuel Cleaver II
Jul 06, 2017
This week on the Northeast Newscast, Managing Editor Paul Thompson sits down with Congressman Emanuel Cleaver II of Missouri's 5th Congressional District. The former Kansas City, Missouri Mayor and City Councilman - now serving in his sixth term in the U.S. Congress - discusses the potentially historically violent year in Kansas City; last month's harrowing attack on Republicans practicing for the annual Congressional baseball game; where he stands on the Trump administration's travel ban; what he appreciates about his constituency after more than a decade in office; the continuing issues with solving health care in America; and his (lack of a) relationship with Missouri Governor Eric Greitens.
