  • We talk with our news roundtable about some of the biggest stories in the week’s news, including the Oregon Department of Justice’s profiling investigation, Sen. Jeff Merkley endorsing presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, an alleged school shooting plot in La Grande, and Portland city council considering changes to its lobbying rules.
  • We talk to the two original organizers of Portland State Students for Trump. Videos of the group’s first meeting went viral when more protesters showed up than Trump supporters.
