Dan Savage, Eli Sanders, and Rich Smith talk about what’s going on inside the so-called “star chamber”—aka, a secure House of Representatives hearing room—where House impeachment investigators are hearing day after day of damning testimony against President Trump.
Also: the author of an anonymous New York Times op-ed from 2018 that chronicled dysfunction within the Trump administration is now publishing a book (also anonymously). It’s going to be called “A Warning,” and it will be out in November. Do we need another "warning" at this point?
After that, Katie Herzog considers a high-level Democratic freak-out about the current crop of presidential candidates. Does the world really want Hillary Clinton, Michael Bloomberg, John Kerry, or some other presidential wannabe to enter this already crowded race?
Plus, as always, the music of Ahamefule J. Oluo.
