We check in with NPR Washington correspondent Brian Naylor as members of the Senate Judiciary Committee continue to question Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Also, the Justice Department recently asked Mississippi prosecutors to consider pressing state charges in a murder of a black teenager by a group of white teenagers nearly 60 years ago. High school teacher Gennella Graham learned about the case, and her connection to 15-year-old victim William Roy Prather, while taking a course in local history. And some political observers are asking whether there's a "soft coup" underway at the White House, after The New York Times published an anonymous op-ed by "a senior official in the Trump administration" describing "a quiet resistance" among members of President Trump's inner circle. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's Sept. 6, 2018 full broadcast. You can read and hear more at, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook.
