[MSNBC Appearance] Hardball with Chris Matthews, Thursday, July 1st: Talk on Russian Spies and the Law

I appear on MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews on Thursday, July 1st at 5:30 p.m. e.t.  With questions continuing to arise involving alleged Russian spies, there is a real question on the ramifications of what these spies might do and also about how much danger they actually posed to U.S. interests. I will also talk about the legal ramifications.

Hope you can watch.


[MSNBC Appearance] Chris Matthews: Friday, Feb. 12, Talk on Handling Terrorists

I appear on MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews on February 12th at 5:30 p.m.   There is an ongoing debate between left and right regarding the best way to handle KSM - civilian trial or military tribunal.  I have to say, I'm excited about this appearance because I think Matthews has some of the best institutional and historical knowledge in the business.  This makes him very interesting in my book.

Hope you can watch.

After spending a couple of hours on MSNBC with Chris Matthews this morning analyzing the statements made by President Obama and former Vice President Cheney regarding torture, GITMO and more, I will rejoin Chris this afternoon for an hour to talk about the ramifications of both speeches and what they mean.

I hope you can watch MSNBC tonight at 5:00 p.m. e.s.t.
