Full Program


Part 1

We begin with the bombshell dropped today by Senator Diane Feinstein who unilaterally released the transcripts of the testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee by the co-founder of Fusion GPS which the chairman Senator Grassley has been sitting on. One of America’s leading experts on the nation’s intelligence organizations, Loch Johnson, the Regents Professor of Public and International Affairs at the University of Georgia who served as staff director of the Senate Intelligence Committee, joins us to discuss this uncharacteristically bold move by Senator Feinstein. We will look into how both Senator Grassley and Senator Graham have been going out of their way to divert attention from the evidence of collusion between Trump and the Russians and possible compromise Putin has on Trump in the Steele Dossier. Instead they are re-investigating Hillary Clinton’s emails and the bogus Uranium One story while going after the messenger by instigating a criminal investigation into Steele in the hope of preventing the message from getting to the American people.

Part 2

Then we examine President Trump’s amazingly light work days revealed today in a scoop by Axios who managed to get a copy of this week’s private presidential schedule which show that most of the day Trump is engaged in what it euphemistically referred to as “Executive Time”, meaning he is watching cable television, calling friends on the phone and tweeting. Matthew Dallek, a professor at George Washington University’s Graduate School of Political Management and a political historian, joins us to discuss how little Trump works governing the country compared to his predecessors and how dangerously ill-informed Trump is because he watches so much of Fox News.

Part 3

Then finally we speak with Dr. Allen Frances, a Professor Emeritus and former Chair of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science at Duke University and author of “Twilight of American Sanity: A Psychiatrist Analyzes the Age of Trump”. He joins us to discuss how the new book “Fire and Fury” adds to the problem that there is too much focus and expectation being placed on the wish to remove Trump from office because he is mentally unfit while not enough attention is paid to the fact that Trump is a very bad man doing very bad things to the country and the world and he is only just getting started.
