Topics and Guests, November 17

Join host Brit Hume and FOX's Team Washington weekdays at 6 p.m. ET for "Special Report" — Find out what's happening inside the Beltway and on the world stage.

Wednesday, Nov. 17:

We'll bring you the latest from the investigation into the U.N. Oil for Food (search) scandal continues on Capitol Hill. Wednesday it was the turn of the House International Relations Committee to hear testimony about how Saddam Hussein and others corrupted the program to line their own pockets. FOX News Correspondent Eric Shawn reports.

And the apparent turmoil at the CIA boiled over into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue Wednesday. White House spokesman Scott McClellan (search) was called upon to answer a story in the New York Times about an email sent out to CIA staff by their new chief, Porter Goss. FOX News senior White House correspondent Jim Angle reports.

Also, airstrikes hit Fallujah (search) holdouts, but insurgents continue to attack in Baqouba, Mosul, near Baghdad and Tikrit — we'll have the latest from Iraq as Greg Kelly reports.

And former President Bill Clinton opens his new presidential library in Little Rock, Arkansas Thursday. Like all presidential libraries, it is intended to represent the former president's legacy. But not all former presidents survived a sex scandal and impeachment. FOX News Correspondent Phil Keating looks at how the Clinton library depicts the history of the Clinton presidency.

Plus, would it serve the Bush administration better if Arlen Specter (search) becomes chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee or if he does not? We'll have top political analysis from our all-star FOX News contributors:

Michael Barone, senior writer for U.S. News and World Report

Jeff Birnbaum, columnist for the Washington Post

CeCi Connolly, national correspondent for the Washington Post

About the Show

Anchored by Washington news veteran Brit Hume, "Special Report with Brit Hume" provides an in-depth look at the day's news and offers a daily topical discussion of political issues impacting the nation.

Hume serves as host to key newsmakers, political pundits and FOX News contributors exchanging views about political matters from taxes and Social Security to international affairs and the political scandal of the day.

Hume brings a historical perspective to the political scene that is rarely rivaled. Born and raised in Washington, D.C., he has covered the policies, procedures and players in the national game called politics for more than 30 years. The Baltimore Sun referred to him as "the very personification of the political establishment."

Each program features a two-minute segment called The Grapevine, which reels off the latest outrageous news nuggets, political poll results and in-the-Beltway gossip that viewers will not see on any other news program. The New York Daily News describes The Grapevine as a must see that, "will make you sounds smart around the water cooler… the next day."

FOX News' Team Washington provides live reports from the White House, Capitol Hill, the Supreme Court and key federal agencies. Seasoned correspondents, including Carl Cameron, Wendell Goler and Major Garrett, explore political hot spots, races and legislative battles being waged around the nation and abroad.

Hume wraps up each program with a lively roundtable discussion featuring Mara Liasson of National Public Radio, Fred Barnes of The Weekly Standard and Mort Kondracke of Roll Call.
