[WVLY West Virginia] October 31st: Jack Talks Indictments

I appear on on WVLY West Virginia with my buddy Howard Monroe.  Two indictments and a guilty plea. It feels a little like a civil war between left and right right now based upon where the Mueller investigation is going.  The problem is there also seems to be two seperate "objective" realities. 

We are going to talk about where we have gone, what's going on right now, and where the investigation may be going.  This is going to be a lot of fun. 


[WVLY West Virginia] October 2nd: Jack Talks Law Vegas Mass Shooting

I appear on WVLY West Virginia with my buddy Howard Monroe on October 2nd.  Information continues to come in about this mass shooting. The dead pile up and the injured are certainly in the hundreds.  The informartion on the shooter strikes me as atypical for what one should expect in this kind of an incident. He is older with no contact with the police, no history of anti social behavior.  More will undoubtedly come out but at this point, there is a lot to talk about.

Hope you can listen.  


[WVLY West Virginia] May 10th: Jack Talks FBI Director Firing

I appear on WVLY with my friend Howard Monroe. The President fired FBI Director Jim Comey last night he claimed it was because of his handling of the investigation of Hilliary Clinton's emails back in 2016.  The problem is this stretches the bounds of credibility.  Trump himself heaped praise on Comey as recently as October for ewactly that.  Rather, this appears to be about Russia and the investigation.  Again, even Trump alludes to the investigation in his letter and then Kelly Anne Conway said that Comey was fired for his conduct since Trump took office,   This is exactly the point.  This was about the FBI and the FBI's pursuit of Russia and Trump connections.  Hence, when I watched this last night, Nixon's decision to fire Archibald Cox came immediately to mind.  This is an extraordinary story that continues to grow. 

This is going to be fun.


On the Air with Howard Monroe on WVLY.

Just got off the air with Howard Monroe WVLY.  Howard and I have known each other for a long time.  We were talking about Afghanistan and the challenges that the Americans face.  Great to have such a smart conversation.

Always enjoy myself with Howard.
