Obamacare has been the talk of Washington as House Republicans attack the law’s implementation and Obama plays defense, and the “not guilty” verdict in the George Zimmerman trial has inflamed civil rights activists and brought controversial “stand your ground” laws into the national spotlight. John McCain will be joining Candy Crowley on Sunday to talk immigration reform, Syria, Snowden, and sexual assault in the military. With developments toward civility in the Senate, a newsmaking interview with Joe Biden, and a potential move for trapped NSA leaker Edward Snowden, there will be no shortage of news to discuss on this Sunday’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley.
We will have the latest on immigration reform as it moves through the House and bring you up to speed on the news-filled week in Illinois. Governor Pat Quinn will join us to discuss gun control, abortion laws, and his bold move to suspend lawmaker pay until state pension reform is accomplished. Candy Crowley and an expert panel will give their takes on the news of the day including Egypt’s crisis, the Zimmerman trial, and Edward Snowden’s next move this Sunday on State of the Union.
National security and immigration are at the forefront for this Sunday’s State of the Union. We’ll be following the new information coming out of House hearings about NSA surveillance programs and tracking the progress of immigration reform as it reaches a final vote. It’s the end of a long, hard-fought battle for the Senate Gang of Eight, and last minute compromises are being made to grab the needed votes. The Director of the NSA said on Tuesday that as many as 50 terrorist plots have been stopped by the surveillance programs that leaker Edward Snowden claims are invasions of privacy for Americans. Obama returns this weekend from Germany and departs next week for Africa, but Candy Crowley will be here in Washington on Sunday to talk about the nation’s news with lawmakers and a panel of experts.
