Week in Review: Mayor Murray abuse allegations, Syria strike, SCOTUS nom
What a week.
The Seattle Times reports on bombshell allegations that Mayor Ed Murray sexually abused up to three teenaged men in the 1980s -- claims the Mayor strongly denies and plans to fight in court.
President Trump orders a cruise missile strike on a Syrian military airfield in retaliation for a chemical attack that killed Syrian civilians earlier this week.
A divided Senate does away with the filibuster and confirms Neil M. Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.
And Bertha emerges from a four-year trip underneath downtown Seattle just in time to catch it all.
Editor's note: We removed two audio cuts from the podcast of this week's show at the request of the Seattle Times, after Mayor Murray's accuser reached out to reporters there and was concerned about being identified by his voice.
