Testimony continued Tuesday in Texas' redistricting trial. On this edition of Capital Tonight we broke down why one state lawmaker said he and other minorities were shut out of the conversation to redraw political maps. Plus, we were joined by former State Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer.

Then, we dove into the latest on the Trump/Russia probe and those bombshell emails released by Trump's son.

And, the issue of local control is sure to dominate debate during the upcoming special session. Bennett Sandlin with the Texas Municipal League joined us to discuss why he calls the agenda an “all-out assault.”
