Today's hot topics: Conyers fights, Franken passes, Simmons exits, tax-reform progresses, and more!

Today on The Ed Morrissey Show (4 pm ET), we have another great lineup for the news of the day! The show will be streamed on Hot Air’s Facebook page and embedded here and on the show page for those who are not on Facebook. (If it’s muted, right-click the video and choose Unmute.)

Join us as we welcome:

  • Duane “Generalissimo” Patterson brings us up to date on the week’s top stories and gives us a preview of tomorrow’s Hugh Hewitt show. As the news out of Washington, New York, and Hollywood multiplies, we’ll keep Duane on for the full first hour to thrash out what it all means.
  • Daily Caller and SiriusXM reporter Kerry Picket gives us the latest from Capitol Hill on the drama of the John Conyers and Al Franken scandals, plus updates us on the tax-reform package. Who’s in, who’s out in the Senate, and will House Republicans go along or force a conference committee? Tune in and find out!
  • Please continue praying for our friend Daniel Welter, who’s undergoing surgery today that will leave him paralyzed after the removal of a malignant tumor on his spine. If you can contribute more than prayers, the link will show you how you can help — but Daniel told us that prayers matter to him most of all.

The Ed Morrissey Show and its dynamic chatroom can be seen on the permanent TEMS page. Be sure to join us, and don’t forget to keep up with the debate on my Facebook page, too!
