First, Secretary of State Antony Blinken sits down with Jake Tapper to discuss why the Biden administration has not labeled Russia a state sponsor of terrorism despite calls to do so.

Also, Jake asks chair of the Senate Banking Committee Sen. Sherrod Brown about his opinion on how the Fed should fight inflation after the US economy added 263,000 jobs in November. Jake also presses him on why it has taken so long to pass protections and regulations for Americans investing in cryptocurrency.

Plus, Congressman-elect Mike Lawler shares whether he is worried that House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy will not reach the 218 votes he needs to win speakership.

And, the panel joins Jake to discuss this week’s Georgia Senate runoff election and Joe Biden’s proposed 2024 primary calendar changes.

Finally, Jake examines how Donald Trump has avoided condemning Kanye West’s anti-Semitic rhetoric and how GOP leaders have recently avoided criticizing Trump for having dinner with West and a prominent white supremacist.
