Mr. Ernest C. Mwansa is the spokesperson of The Technical Committee on Drafting the Zambian Constitution which was constituted on 16th November, 2011, by the President using his executive powers vested in him by the current Republican Constitution.. The Technical Committee has recognized that the constitution-making process is a very important national issue and should, therefore, involve the participation of all Zambians.
Mr Mwansa joins us to discuss wide ranging issues on the process or route of coming up with an acceptable or people-driven Constitution. He will update us on the process and progress, address the concerns of the role and influence of the Executive in the process, reasons the process has taken longer than initially projected, what role if any at the current stage can the Diaspora play, will the final draft be subjected to a national referendum? It is now over 20 years since Zambia started making attempts, at developing a democratic Constitution is this the last we are undergoing through this process?
With today's House Judiciary Committee Hearing in which committee members grilled AG Eric Holder all afternoon about the IRS scandal, Benghazi, and the AP telephone wiretapping, a lot of chatter is buzzing about impeachment.
But what does that mean? And what all is involved. Last night we talked about why any impeachment proceedings should wait until after the 2014 election. More on that tonight.
And how the these scandals affect legislative intiatives on the Hill in the next several months? Will it be a Long Hot Summer, as Drudge reported on his website? The fact that Obama is becoming radio-active will certainly change how Congress will puzzle thru the major legislative items needed to fund the government, increase the debt ceiling and other "must pass" pieces of legislation.

Chapter 1: Kentucky Senators Push for Hemp Legalization
Senate Minority Leader, along with Kentucky colleage Rand Paul, are looking to add a provision to the Farm Bill that would legalize the commercial production of hemp. Hemp legalization seems to possess broad support in Kentucky which passed its own legalization law in April. However, the Republican Senators are meeting much Democratic resistance. We talk to Janet Patton, a reporter for the Lexington-Herald Leader.
Chapter 2: DoJ’s Subpoena for AP Records Much Broader
The Associated Press has said that the Department of Justice subpoenas in the recent seizure of phone records pertaining to the news agency’s story on an undercover anti-terrorism sting operation were much broader than the DoJ originally claimed. The subpoenas allegedly included records for 21 phone lines from five bureaus, but also, apparently, for five reporters’ cellphones and three home phones. Jamila Bey argues that this means a likely violations of other privacy protections extending beyond those just afforded for the press.
Chapter 3: Senate Closer to Immigration Bill Including H1B Visa Expansion
The Senate Judiciary Committee continues to slog through three hundred amendments in its markup of a bipartisan immigration bill. The various sides are not very far apart on many issues including the pathway to citizenship for the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States. However, differences on specifics remain to be hammered out such as the cap on H1B visas, those given to highly skilled workers in high-tech fields. Crystal Williams, Executive Director of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, argues that a final bill may not be perfect, but it will go far to simplifying a system few can navigate now.

Chapter 1: House Ways and Means Holds Hearing Into IRS Scandal
House Ways and Means held their first hearing, earlier today into last week's revelations that the IRS had unduly applied stricter scrutiny when reviewing and granting 501(c)4 applications from conservative groups. Steve Miller the Acting IRS Commissioner who was ousted on Wednesday and the Treasury Department’s Inspector General for Tax Administration Russell George were grilled by House members for hours. Our reporter Dmitriy Shapiro gives us the latest.
Chapter 2: House Group Agrees to Immigration Reform Framework
A group in the House has come up with the basic framework for an immigration reform proposal, giving further negotiations a base to work off of. Meanwhile, the Senate Judiciary Committee has been working through 300 amendments in the markup of their own bill. We get an update from Peggy Orchowski, Congressional Correspondent for Hispanic Outlook and author of Immigration and the American Dream: Battling the Political Hype and Hysteria.
Chapter 3: Groups Push to SEC to Require Corporations to List Political Donations
Following the IRS targeting conservative groups applying for tax exempt status, new attention is being placed on supposedly non-political groups engaging in political activities. In the case of the IRS, the question is the tax status of so-called social welfare organizations designated as 501c4’s. But the Securities and Exchange Commission is now considering a petition that they force companies to disclose their political contributions. SEC officials have said they are not currently seriously considering a rule, but a number of groups are renewing the call such as Public Citizen. We talk to Lisa Gilbert, Director of Public Citizen’s Congress Watch Division.
Chapter 1: Eric Holder Grilled by House Judiciary Committee Hearing AG Eric Holder spent hours answering question by members of Congress during a House Judiciary Committee oversight hearing on the Department of Justice’s subpoena of AP phone records, the IRS targeting of conservative political groups and even the FBI’s failure to stop the Boston Marathon bombing. Holder defended the DoJ’s effort to find the security leak to the AP but declared they they would fully investigate the IRS’s actions. We talk to Susan Ferrechio , Chief Congressional Correspondent, The Washington Examiner. Chapter 2: White House Pushes for Media Shield Law In response to revelations that the Department of Justice subpoenaed phone records from the Associated Press, the White House is now pushing a media shield law. Such legislation would protect journalists’ sources such as the person who leaked information about an anti-terrorism sting operation that led to the AP story. A similar bill was proposed in 2009 but it contained an exemption when national security issues are at stake. We talk to Mary-Rose Papandrea, Professor at Boston College Law where she specializes in both free speech and national security. Chapter 3: Social Media Increasingly Used as Evidence in the Courtroom Early this month, Frank Gatto, a grounds operation supervisor at JFK Int'l Airport sued United Airlines for his injury and proceeded to delete his Facebook account. A judge in that case cited Gatto for failing to preserve evidence leaving it open to discovery by the other side. What should companies, employees and any other individuals who might find themselves in litigation know about what they put out on social media? We ask Christopher C. Chiou, Partner, Jenner & Block in Los Angeles.
