    First, Jake goes one-on-one with Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams on what the Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade will mean for her state, whether Biden is doing enough on abortion rights, whether the Senate should lift the filibuster to codify Roe into law, and if Netflix and Disney should pull their businesses from Georgia in their opposition to the so-called ‘heartbeat’ abortion ban. Next, Jake interviews Secretary of State Antony Blinken live from the G7 Summit in Krun, Germany. They discuss the international political reaction to the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, whether Russia is winning its tactical war against Ukraine after failing strategically, the G7’s ban on $19 billion of Russian gold imports and the possible prisoner swap being negotiated to bring WNBA star Brittney Griner home from Russia.  After, Jake goes one-on-one with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson on his reaction to the US overturning Roe v. Wade, his view of American democracy after January 6, how a Russian victory in Ukraine would be 'absolutely catastrophic', and the six-year milestone since Brexit. Is Britain better off?  To close: Has the ‘American experiment’ begun to fail? Jake reflects on how America’s institutions have held up against the insurrection, fake elector plots and former president Trump’s pressure campaign on officials to ‘find’ extra votes in the states he lost in 2020.

    First, as the House select committee investigating the January 6 attack on the Capitol enters its third week of hearings, committee member Rep. Adam Schiff tells Dana Bash that this week's hearings will reveal how pressure campaigns "directed against state and local elections officials put their lives in danger."  Next, Rep. Fred Upton joins to discuss whether the Jan. 6 committee's case is resonating with moderate Republicans and independent voters, as well as whether he thinks the Republican Party would back Trump if he decides to run again in 2024.    Then, Dana presses Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm on the steps the Biden administration is taking to prevent a recession, including using the Defense Production Act to increase fuel supply and lower gas prices.  And, as today marks Juneteenth, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee shares what the federal recognition of the end of slavery in America means to her after she fought to make the day a national holiday. This week's panel includes former U.S. Senator Scott Brown, Former Ohio State Senator Nina Turner, CNN Political Commentator Alyssa Farah Griffin, and CNN Anchor Audie Cornish discussing the January 6 hearings and inflation.
