Full Program


Part 1

We begin with the meteoric fall of the U.S. under Donald Trump from the world power that dominated the G-20 to something of a joke on the world stage where the daughter of a president known for her clothing line sits in between the British and Chinese leaders on an important meeting for her father who has managed to isolate the U.S. from the rest of the G-19 in less than 6 months. Charles Kupchan, who was director of European Affairs on the National Security Council during the Clinton Administration and spent the last 3 years as Special Assistant to President Obama for National Security, joins us to discuss the much anticipated meeting between Putin and Trump that was conducted in secret without Trump’s National Security Advisor or his National Security Council’s Russian-speaking expert present.

Part 2

Then we examine the two separate foreign policies the U.S. appears to have, one conducted by the Trump family and the other by a compromised, hamstrung and largely ignored defense, intelligence and diplomatic establishment that fringe ideologues inside the White House close to Trump like Stephen Bannon and Sebastian Gorka refer to as the “deep state”. A CIA Middle East veteran, Robert Baer, who is now the national security affairs analyst on CNN, joins us to discuss the unprecedented nature of having a leader of the United States trash his own intelligence services on foreign soil while defending the actions of an adversary who attacked the United States.

Part 3

Then finally we get an update on the latest revelations coming from the many investigations into the Trump campaign’s possible collusion with Russians following a story in The New York Times that Trump’s son and son-in-law met with a Russian lawyer close to the Kremlin who led the Kremlin’s campaign to destroy the late Sergei Magnitsky’s investigation into high-level corruption. An expert on international money laundering, James Henry, an economist, lawyer and investigative journalist who is the co-founder of DCReports.org, joins us to look into whether Trump’s former mob-connected partner Felix Sater, has ratted him out.
