Episode Description:

This week on The Square Circle, we discuss these issues:

The 115th Congress opened this week with controversy as House Republicans tried to push through an ethics reform. Does this episode mean that House Republicans are ethically challenged?

As the new Congress opened, Republicans made clear that repealing and replacing Obamacare is at the top of their agenda. It seems that repeal is the easy part, but will the Republicans be able to find a viable replacement for the law?

President-elect Donald Trump has been at odds with U.S. intelligence agencies over Russia's role in the U.S. presidential election. Is Trump's stance toward Moscow something to be worried about?

Gregory Clay of, political correspondent for McClatchy James Rosen, and Kelley Vlahos of the American Conservative discuss these issues and more.
