In hour one of Here & Now's Feb. 5, 2018 full broadcast, NPR's Domenico Montanaro joins us for the latest from Washington, where a Republican memo alleging misconduct by the FBI has stoked partisan divides as lawmakers near a deadline to keep the government funded. Also, in his new book, Scott Tong looks back at the China's history from the late 19th to early 21st centuries through the stories of members of his extended family. And we speak with one railroad expert who says a spate of recent deadly Amtrak crashes is unusual, and that a crash in South Carolina over the weekend appears to have been preventable.
