Episode #190: Time to End the Staff Infection?

As more troubles hit the White House, the president’s opposition is taking more aggressive action.  That includes a bill to impeach Trump, as offered by Rep. Brad Sherman, a California Democrat.  Sherman explains why he offered the bill and argues that support for such a move will increase with time.

Jill Wine-Banks, who was an assistant special prosecutor during Watergate, compares and contrasts what went on with President Nixon in 1973-74 and what is happening now with Trump.  She sees many similarities between the two.

Carl Cannon, the Washington bureau chief of RealClearPolitics, is on the program with his new book that has a fascinating entry for every day of the year.  It’s called, “On This Date — From the Pilgrims to Today, Discovering America One Day At a Time.”

And it was 14 years ago this week that Sen. Ernest Fritz Hollings, a South Carolina Democrat, announced he would not seek re-election in 2004.  Michael Copps, his longtime chief of staff, discusses Hollings’ long, fascinating and influential career.

    I had to write while I was still listening to this podcast: The interview with Jill Wine-Banks was fantastic!! So interesting. Watergate was my first interest in politics (and I was just a kid).
