AirTalk’s weekly political roundtable recaps the big political stories you might’ve missed this weekend and looks ahead to the week to come in national and state politics.

We’ll talk with our political analysts about their take on the conclusion of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and the political dimensions of all that, but we’ll also tackle a few stories that aren’t related to the Mueller probe:

  • Trump comments on Golan Heights & Israel

  • Trump tweet on N. Korea sanctions causes confusion

  • Fox News poll: Biden, Sanders lead Dems preference

  • Sen. Kamala Harris to call for federal spending to raise teachers’ salaries

  • Democratic candidates want bigger SCOTUS to counteract recently-added conservative justices

  • Sen. Warren calls for ending electoral college
