State of the Union
Mar 27, 2022

President Biden made international headlines this week when he went off-script during a speech in Poland, suggesting support for a regime change in Russia. Fresh off the NATO summit in Brussels, U.S. Ambassador to NATO Julianne Smith joins to clarify Biden’s comments about Putin and outline the U.S.’s new plan with the E.U. So, was Biden’s trip a success? 

Today’s extended episode also features exclusive interviews with Sen. Jim Risch and Rep. Michael McCaul about Russia signaling a shift in the deadly and destructive Ukraine conflict; Sen. Cory Booker on an emotional Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson confirmation hearing; Sen. Mark Warner on future Russian cyberattacks; Ukrainian Ambassador to the U.S. Oksana Markarova on what a peace agreement could resemble; and Chef José Andrés explains how he is helping provide millions of meals to Ukrainian refugees. Plus, our correspondents around the world provide the latest global news for our panels of experts to analyze.
