‘ED Show’ playbook: Wed., June 20


Darrell Issa’s witch hunt reaches an unprecedented level as a House panel holds Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress.

Tonight, Ed asks Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) about Issa’s political hit job on Holder and checks in with Jonathan Alter, msnbc Political Analyst and Bloomberg View columnist, for the latest from Capitol Hill.

Republicans are still scrambling after the president’s immigration move.  Sen. Marco Rubio tries to make the president’s action on immigration all about him. Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-CA) responds.

Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty is on everyone’s short list to be Mitt Romney’s running mate. But Ed reveals why it would be a dream ticket for Democrats with some help from Mike Hatch, former attorney general of Minnesota.

The Obama campaign files a lawsuit demanding Karl Rove’s super PAC disclose its donors.  The big panel – Karen Finney, msnbc Political Analyst and former DNC Communications Director, radio talk show host Mark Simone and Krystal Ball, Democratic Strategist and former candidate for U.S. Congress – weighs in on shadow money and the Holder witch hunt.

Howard Dean makes a surprising prediction on the future healthcare: the Supreme Court could open the door for what liberals really want.

And in the Big Finish, Republicans are on the verge of cutting food stamps for the poor again.  Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is fighting back and joins Ed tonight.
