1. Weekly Roundup: October 15th NPR 26:23

The two senators who are forcing more negotiations over the Biden administration’s multi-trillion dollar climate and social programs bill appear to have different priorities for what they want to see changed. But it is hard to know for sure: Kyrsten Sinema avoids reporters and has said little publicly about her views to the frustration of her Democratic colleagues.

And top Trump aides have so far refused to appear before the House of Representatives committee investigating the January 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol. That could lead to criminal penalties against former adviser Steve Bannon.

This episode: White House reporter Asma Khalid, acting congressional correspondent Deirdre Walsh, congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell, congressional reporter Claudia Grisales, and justice correspondent Ryan Lucas.
