Loud & Clear Discussion on Second Manafort Sentencing

Paul Manafort sentenced for a second time

Loud & Clear Discussion on Congressional Trump Investigation Post -Mueller

Frustrated by lack of evidence from Mueller probe, House Democrats to launch new investigation into Trump (3/4/2019)

Congressional Democrats announced that they will aggressively pursue an investigation into obstruction of justice and a wide range of other misconduct against President Trump as the Mueller probe appears to be wrapping up, leaving many of the most fervent Russiagate proponents disappointed. Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul, a Kentucky Republican, announced over the weekend that he would vote against President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency related to the border. This means a measure rejecting the declaration now has enough votes to pass the Senate despite Trump’s veto threat. Brian and John speak with Jim Kavanagh, the editor of thepolemicist.net who has written on this topic in a recent article called "Be Careful What You Ask For: Wasting Time with Manafort, Cohen, and Russiagate."
