Today's hot topics: Cohenageddon, Putin snub, Flakiness, opportunity zones, 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.

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. We’ll talk about what brought on the brouhaha between Hugh and Sen. Mike Lee, the fight on the Senate floor with Jeff Flake, and prospects for 2020 after a perhaps not-great Senate result in 2018.
  • Michael Cohen entered a surprise guilty plea in a deal with Robert Mueller, just two days after Mueller canceled a deal with Paul Manafort. NRO’s Andrew C. McCarthy pilots us through the confusion and gives us his perspective on what this means for Trump and the investigation.
  • Earlier this month, the Jack Kemp Foundation honored Sen. Tim Scott and Napster founder Sean Parker for their work on Opportunity Zone legislation, part of the GOP’s tax-reform bill passed last December. Jimmy Kemp, president of the foundation, explains the benefits of a concept pioneered by his father.

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!
