Power & Politics podcast: Al Alvarez, Gateway Project, gun bills - listen here

Posted: Updated:

Al Alvarez is accusing his accuser of defamation. We talk to Micah Rasmussen of the Rebovich Institute for New Jersey Politics about Alvarez and the other lingering scandal at the SDA.

Then it's a $30 billion transportation transformation, but is it too big to get built? The Gateway Project would build new bridges and tunnels into New York City. We talk to David Peter Alan of Railway Age, who says there's a construction cartel pushing the project.

And the shootings in Dayton and El Paso shocked the nation and renewed the debates over guns, white supremacists and universal background checks. We ask Rep. Frank Pallone if now is the time for Democrats to work with President Donald Trump on gun bills.
