This week on “Your Voice, Your Vote”:

U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Oregon, gives his thoughts on the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible ties between President Trump’s campaign and the Kremlin.

Devin Nunes, the Republican chairman of that committee, had a meeting with the president to discuss the investigation before talking to his colleagues in Congress.

Wyden called that a “textbook case of what you shouldn’t do to have bipartisan oversight in the Congress.”

And we speak to Mary Li with Multnomah County about the county’s plans to help the homeless with “granny flats.”

The plan calls for building very small houses in the backyards of homeowners for free. In exchange, the homeowners would be required to allow a homeless family to live in the houses for five years. Then the homeowners would own the tiny houses outright.
