[AM950 Minneapolis] April 14th: Trump Talks Tough on Syria.

I appear on AM950 in Minneapolis with Mike McIntee. The Syrians have apparently used chemical weapons against their own people again.  This is nowhere near the first time the Syrian have committed atrocities against their own people.  It is truly despicable and unacceptable. In fact this kind of behavior has been going on consistently now for several years.  And yet, this President all of a sudden has decided that it is over the line now when just two weeks ago he said he was going to pull out of Syria. The real problem is that he is all over the board and does not seem to have a coherent strategy.

This will be interesting.

[AM950 Minneapolis] March 22: The Revolving Door of the White House and Now John Bolton is In?

I appear on AM 950 Minneapolis with Mike McIntee.  The number of people that have left this White House is truly unprecedented in modern history and this is includes senior advisors as well.  The fear amongst some is that the few remaining "adults" in the room are getting ready to bolt as well.  John Bolton house just been brought in as National Security Advisor to the President Bolton is a war hawk. He always has been.  He has pushed for a long time to bomb Iran, flat out.  The ripple effect and instability of this approach remains to be seen with his appointment.  

We will discuss this and more.

[Nicole Sandler Show] February 2nd: GOP/Trump Rolls the Dice and Releases Memo

I appear on on the Nicole Sandler Show on February 2nd.  The story of the Nunez memo is dominating the political headlines. Everybody wants to know, why would the President decide to ignore the Justice Department and the FBI and release a completely unredacted memo?  Why would he release a memo that by all objective accounts, ignores some evidence in order to provide a slanted, subjective viewpoint? Why would he release classified information that discloses but sources and methods over the objection of both Justice and the Bureau. These are all really important questions and ones that say a lot about the state of the country right  now.

This will be interesting.

[AM950 Minneapolis] February 1st: Nunez and Trump Try to Undercut Russia Investigation

I appear on AM950 Minneapolis with my friend Matt McNeil on February 1st.  So Congressman Nunez, the GOP and Donald Trump all seem set on releasing a memo that has been called, incorrect, unreliable, incomplete, and containing classified information that should n't be made public. So, why would they release such a memo? Simply, they are trying to undercut the Russian investigation to determine whether Trump or his people were involve din either conspiring with the Russians or in obstructing the investigation. Simply put, that's it. 

Rather than saying, lets get this thing out there and figure out what happened and what the Russians and maybe some Americans did, they want to get people to ignore the results of the investigaiton itself.  is there anybody who things that that might be a problem?  

This should be interesting.

[Voice of America Intl. Edition] January 23rd: Mueller Turns to Trump for Answers

I appear on Voice of America International Edition with Lori Lundin on January 23rd. As the Mueller investigation continues to move forward, it appears that he his opening a new chapter and that new chapter is entitled Donald Trump. This is significant as the Mueller team has acquired enormous amounts of information so when they are asking the President questions, they already know the answers.

This is potentially an incredibly dangerous chapter for the President.  Its not ju8st about collusion with the Russians but also about obstruction and what that means.  The President has been all over the board and the potential could be incredibly ugly.

This promises to be a really interesting converation. Hope you can listen in.
