In retaliation for the assassination of a former Russian spy and his daughter on British soil, President Trump has shuttered Seattle's Russian consulate. Following the closure last fall of the San Francisco consulate, Russians on the Pacific Coast will now have to travel east to get passports, visas, and conduct other business with their government.

Seattle Congressmember Pramila Jayapal was in the studio today, and spoke with Bill Radke about why she supports the closing of the consulate, whether she'll join the call to repeal the Second Amendment, and more. 

Also, we hear from veteran journalist Dan Rather about the media, new and old. And some experts believe the Seattle Mariners won't make the playoffs this year. Co-founder and editor of SportsPress Northwest, Art Thiel explains why he hasn't been excited about the Mariners in a long, long time.
