Navalny Death Sparks International Outrage & Protest Within Russia

Nearly 400 people were detained across Russia for publicly mourning the death of Alexei Navalny. The Russian opposition leader died in an Arctic prison colony last week. The Kremlin claims Navalny died of sudden death syndrome, yet most Western leaders such as President Biden have argued President Vladimir Putin is responsible for Navalny’s death. Benjamin Hall, senior FOX News correspondent and host of the podcast “Searching for Heroes with Benjamin Hall,” joins the Rundown to explain the current state of affairs in Russia, why Navalny's demise has sparked international outrage, and discuss the war in Ukraine as it approaches two years since Russia invaded. As the workplace begins to look younger and younger, with Gen Z employees set to soon overtake Baby Boomers in the workforce, concerns persist about where office culture is heading. A viral trend has emerged recently of "Zoomers" filming themselves getting laid off, and posting them on TikTok. This along with remote work demands have employers worried for the future generation of workers. Co-host of The Big Money Show on FOX Business, Taylor Riggs, joins the podcast to discuss Gen Z's workplace etiquette, how artificial intelligence is impacting the world of business, and touches upon inflation’s impact on consumer spending.

House Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-MN-3) joins the Rundown to discuss the Senate foreign aid bill, what he expects to come out of the impeachment trial of Secretary Mayorkas, and shares what can be done to secure the southern border.  Monday is Presidents Day, a time for Americans to honor and celebrate the leaders who helped shape the nation.

Extra: The Targeting Of Gun Transactions

For years, Second Amendment advocates have long raised concerns about both the government and the public sector collecting and tracking gun purchase data. They say this is a privacy issue and a pathway to deny people their rights to own a weapon or target gun owners legally. The state of California recently passed a law that says banks and credit card companies must assign merchant category codes to firearm sellers by May of next year so they can flag suspicious activity and alert law enforcement. Members of Congress have also recently raised alarms over reports the Treasury Department is conducting surveillance on gun owners. On the FOX News Rundown this week, Jessica Rosenthal spoke with Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen, who has been outspoken about his opposition to such practices and why tracking gun purchases is a violation of the law. Jessica also spoke with former ATF Senior Executive Scott Sweetow about how effective a database on gun purchases could be when trying to stop gun trafficking and mass shooters. We made edits for time and thought you might like to hear our entire conversations with both guests. On today's FOX News Rundown Extra, you'll hear even more from Montana AG Austin Knudsen and former ATF agent Scott Sweetow about gun data collection and whether or not that information would a helpful tool for law enforcement.

From Washington: Speaker Johnson's Job Continues To Get Harder

Former Congressman Tom Suozzi will return to the House after defeating Republican Mazi Pilip in a special election held in New York last week, flipping the seat to the Democrats. He will fill the vacancy left by the expulsion of Republican George Santos. Politico Reporter Olivia Beavers examines what parties can learn from last Tuesday's results and how Souzzi's win could impact the politics and policies coming out of Capitol Hill. No matter how hard you try to avoid them, you will be inundated with campaign and PAC ads every election cycle. Some get more attention than others. A $7 million ad for Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. created some buzz this week after it aired during last Sunday’s game. Meanwhile, Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley's campaign placed a $4 million ad buy in South Carolina as she hopes to keep her campaign alive.

Bush Karl Rove discusses the efficacy of political advertising and explains the types of voters they're aimed toward. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Dan Senor is a former Bush White House foreign policy adviser, the host of the podcast 'Call Me Back', and the author of the book, "The Genius of Israel The Surprising Resilience of a Divided Nation in a Turbulent World." FOX News' Dana Perino first spoke with Dan on the Fox News Rundown back in November, just weeks after Hamas' brutal terror attacks against Israel on October 7th. Back then, the two discussed the country's unique history and its resilience. Dana wanted to sit down with him again this past week to get his take on the ongoing war, his recent trip to Israel, and if the country remained as determined as ever to defeat Hamas as it did last fall. In the segment that ran earlier this week, Dana and Dan also talked about the threat from Iran and the growing pressure on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to free the remaining hostages and end the war. The conversation was very extensive and we had to make edits for time.

From Washington: Why Russia Is Upping The Ante

A wave of alarming news came out of Russia this past week. On Friday, we learned of the death of Kremlin opposition leader Alexei Navalny at a Russian prison colony. And just days before that, a cryptic warning about an emerging Russian space-based threat from the House Intelligence Committee chairman sparked major concern in Washington and across the country. Retired Army Lieutenant General Keith Kellogg joins to discuss how he believes the West should respond to these alarming developments, and how they could impact the debate over Ukraine funding and America's commitment to the NATO alliance.   Earlier this week, the House narrowly voted 214 to 213 to impeach Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, highlighting the GOP's continued efforts to hold the Biden administration responsible for the growing crisis at the southern border. This historic event marks the first time in nearly 150 years a cabinet secretary has been impeached. However, it is expected Mayorkas will acquitted by the Senate as many Democrats argue that the GOP's actions are nothing more than a political stunt. FOX News Congressional Correspondent Aishah Hasnie joins to explain how Republicans were able to pull off this week's historic vote.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
