First, with inflation above 8%, Dana presses Sen. Elizabeth Warren on whether America could face a recession. Warren also weighs in on what Democrats need to do if they hope to stand a chance in the midterm elections. Next, Rep. Victoria Spartz, the first Ukrainian-born member of Congress, joins from Kyiv to discuss what she's seeing in the capital and her reaction to U.S. Secretary State Antony Blinken and Defense Secretary Llyod Austin's visit to Ukraine today. Then, after a judge struck down the federal mask mandate on transportation, Dana asks White House COVID-19 Response Coordinator Dr. Ashish Jha whether mask requirements are still necessary. And, this week's panel discusses a leaked phone call where U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy suggested former President Trump should resign after the January 6 insurrection, as well as the battle between Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Disney.

On today's panel: Former Atlanta Major Keisha Lance Bottoms, Former Special Assistant to President George W. Bush Scott Jennings, Former DNC Communications Director Xochitl Hinojosa, and Former White House Director of Strategic Communications Alyssa Farah Griffin.
