Congressman David Cicilline

From the small but mighty state of Rhode Island, Rep. David Cicilline has been a stalwart progressive voice in Congress since his election in 2010.  Before that, he was the mayor of Providence, Rhode Island where he was the first openly gay mayor of a state capital. He sits on the House Judiciary Committee and was a highly visible presence in the impeachment hearings against Donald Trump.  In this episode, he joins Alyssa Milano to talk about the changes in congressional relationships since he took office, what happened behind-the-scenes during the impeachment of Donald Trump, and the House Democrats’ vision for 2020 and beyond.
