Hunter Heads To Washington

Hunter Biden is set to testify today in a closed-door hearing with House Oversight Chair James Comer and House Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan leading the questioning about the President's son's overseas business dealings. The case hangs on Republican claims that the Biden family financially gained from selling the "Biden Brand.” They allege that access to then-Vice President Biden was being peddled to foreign business leaders. FOX News Justice correspondent David Spunt joins the Rundown to explain how this hearing will be conducted, what to expect from Hunter Biden's testimony, and the kind of evidence that could be presented during the deposition. The State Department has recently issued a travel advisory for those looking to visit Mexico; at the same time, national data suggests spring breakers traveling will surge this year. The U.S. has asked travelers to remain vigilant while vacationing, as violent crime has increased in popular vacation destinations.

President of Global Situation Room and former Director of Global Engagement for the Obama administration, Brett Bruen, joins the podcast to explain why travelers must always research their destinations thoroughly, how Americans can stay safe abroad, and the value of registering with the embassy at their destination.

Why Won't Nikki Haley Quit The Race?

Today is Michigan's primary, where former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley is looking to win a share of delegates, while former President Trump is hoping to build on his already strong lead. The former President continues to call for Haley to drop out of the race after his win in the South Carolina primary, Haley’s home state. Director of the FOX News Decision Desk, Arnon Mishkin, joins the Rundown to discuss the ongoing race for the White House, what he is seeing ahead of the Michigan primary election, and shares his thoughts on why Ambassador Haley has not dropped out of the race. Florida lawmakers passed a bill last week that would restrict young people’s social media access, which would effectively prohibit those under 16 from accessing Instagram or TikTok. The Supreme Court debated this law on Monday, signaling that some aspects of the bill are unconstitutional. Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives, Paul Renner, is leading the charge to pass measure HB 1 to ensure Florida protects its children against what he warns are the “harmful and addictive” effects of social media. On the podcast, he explains what protections the bill affords, the negative consequences social media is having on children’s mental and physical health, and how the Florida House is balancing this measure with also protecting parents’ rights.

Former President Trump Wins Big In South Carolina As Nikki Haley Vows To Continue Campaign

Former President Trump scored a decisive victory over former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley in her home state's primary this weekend. Despite the 20-point loss, Haley has vowed to continue her campaign against President Trump, citing the need for younger leadership in government. This while the Senate must conduct the impeachment trial of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, and the House Oversight Committee continues its ongoing investigation into the Biden family. South Carolina Congresswoman Nancy Mace (R-SC-1) joins the Rundown to discuss why she believes it is time for the GOP to unite behind former President Trump, where she sees the Biden investigation heading, and talks about the challenges Republicans face with such a narrow House majority.  Surveys estimate that nearly 77 million Americans have a criminal record. Essentially, 1 in every 3 adults has experienced an arrest, conviction, or incarceration. Once folks have served their time and are released, the barriers to re-entering society, like gaining steady employment or affordable housing, can prove extremely difficult. In many states, their criminal record even disqualifies individuals from many opportunities. Vice President at Prison Fellowship Kate Trammell says that there are about 44,000 restrictive federal laws that punish people who have served prison sentences. On the podcast, she explains how reforming these laws will lead to lower crime and better criminal rehabilitation. Plus, commentary from Co-Host of The Five, and Democratic Strategist Jessica Tarlov.  (Image: Andrew Harnik Via AP) Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Extra: Why Don't Americans Want To Be Police Officers Anymore?

As cities try to cope with crime across the country, those efforts are being hindered by the nationwide police shortage. In Louisiana, the problem is bad Governor Landry has recently declared a state of emergency to address his state’s severe law enforcement recruitment problem. Earlier this week, Retired NYPD Inspector and FOX News contributor Paul Mauro joined host Lisa Brady on the FOX News Rundown to discuss what’s causing this officer shortage and potential solutions to their problem. Mauro also reacted to Police departments who have had to lower recruitment standards in an attempt to drum up interest in becoming a cop. The conversation was very extensive and we had to make edits for time. On today’s FOX News Rundown Extra, you’ll hear the entire interview with Retired NYPD Inspector and FOX News contributor Paul Mauro about America's police shortage and how politics and the “Defund The Police” movement exacerbated it.

From Washington: War On Ukraine Enters Third Year

Saturday, February 24th marked two years since the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy remains determined to defeat Russia and continues to request aid and resources from the U.S., urging that a lack of support from President Biden could lead to dire consequences for his country. Though the President announced the U.S. would be implementing more than 500 new sanctions against Russia on Friday, no aid can be sent to Ukraine until a foreign aid package can successfully pass through Congress, which has proven to be a challenge. National security expert Rebecca Grant explains the state of the region two years on. Later, Ukraine’s Ambassador to the U.S. Oksana Markarova discusses the important U.S.-Ukraine relationship. The House has voted to impeach Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, the first time a member of the President's cabinet has faced an impeachment since the 1870s. Republican lawmakers are preparing to hold a full Senate trial holding the Biden administration responsible for the crisis at the Southern Border. However, many Washington insiders believe the Senate will likely acquit Secretary Mayorkas. FOX News Senior Congressional Correspondent Chad Pergram explains how a Senate impeachment trial differs from a presidential one and the political implications it brings for both parties involved.

Extra: An Alarming New Trend In The Border Crisis

The crisis at the U.S. southern border has dominated headlines and debates in Washington for years. However, there has been a shift at the border, with migrants now entering less via Texas and instead illegally crossing through Arizona and California. And that’s not the only big change; Chinese migrants are now the fastest-growing group entering the United States from Mexico. A development that raises even more national security concerns. FOX News Correspondent Griff Jenkins has been covering the border crisis for years. Earlier this week he joined the Rundown’s Dave Anthony to discuss what he’s seen at the border, the increasing number of illegal Chinese migrants, and his new FOX Nation special, “24/7: Border Crisis.” Griff, who has traveled throughout Central and South America and has spoken with many migrants along the way, shared some incredible stories about his time reporting on the issue. The conversation was very extensive and we had to make edits for time. On today’s FOX News Rundown Extra, you’ll hear the entire interview with FOX News Correspondent Griff Jenkins and get even more of his firsthand knowledge about the border crisis.
