Our exlusive guests this week:
• Rev. Richard McBrien, professor of theology, University of Notre Dame
• Rev. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life
• Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Senate minority leader
This Sunday, President Obama will give the commencement address and receive an honorary law degree from the University of Notre Dame. Controversy has erupted on the campus of the nation’s largest Catholic university over whether it is appropriate to award an honorary degree to a president who is a strong advocate for abortion rights and embryonic stem cell research. We’ll have a fair and balanced debate with Rev. Richard McBrien, professor of theology at the University of Notre Dame, and Rev. Frank Pavone, the national director of Priests for Life.
How will Senate Republicans choose to fight back against the president’s ambitious plans for domestic policy, Supreme Court vacancies, and national security issues? We sit down with the Senate’s top ranking Republican, Senator Mitch McConnell, only on "FOX News Sunday."
Then, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi accuses the CIA of lying. Did the CIA mislead Congress on enhanced interrogation techniques? We'll discuss with our Sunday panel: Brit Hume, FOX News senior political analyst; Nina Easton of Fortune Magazine; Bill Kristol of the Weekly Standard, and Jennifer Loven of the Associated Press.
Plus, our Power Player of the Week helps preserve and share our nation’s treasures — Patty Stonesifer, chair of the Smithsonian Board of Regents.
So check your local listings and we’ll see you on the next "FOX News Sunday."
