In hour two of Here & Now's June 23, 2017 full broadcast, it's been a week since Minnesota police officer Jeronimo Yanez was acquitted in the shooting death of 32-year-old Philando Castile during a traffic stop.

Also, The Washington Post has published an in-depth look into the internal struggle within the Obama administration over how to respond to Russia's attempts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. We hear more from one of the reporters who worked on the story. And toxic posts, arguments and insults around politics are convincing many that they should avoid gatherings with their former classmates.
