It's a Native American tribe who wants their leader to have a meeting with the president. 

Tom's brother, Trey, shows up at the white house.

The tribe speaks of their people being removed by eminent domain. Kirkman was the one who presented a plan to use the tribe's land for commercial use. Cousins, the spokesperson, asks that Kirkman help otherwise the tribe would be no more.

The housing that the tribe/residents were relocated to is poor.

Trey wants to meet with Tom. They get into it and rehash their shaky past. Trey left when Tom was taking care of their sick mother because he was a screw-up. Tom resents him for that.

Trisha (Lyor's new assistant) finds a copy of a letter that Cousins father wrote to Kirkman. Kirkman's friend Billy withheld the letter from him because he wanted the development to go through.
