It was a question from Democratic Senator Al Franken that got Jeff Sessions into potential perjury trouble over his Russia connections. In other confirmation hearings, Franken's questions have spotlighted the incompetence of Betsy DeVos and the callous absurdity of Neil Gorsuch. But for this Wednesday's Blabbermouth podcast—subscribe FOR FREE right here—Senator Franken will be the one fielding questions.
I'll ask him about his unusual journey from Saturday Night Live to the US Senate, which Franken writes about in his new book, Al Franken: Giant of the Senate. I'll find out whether Republican Senators are able to laugh at themselves when Franken pokes fun at them on the job. I'll toss Franken a burning "millennial" question from Rich Smith and a 2020-focused, "barely-a-boomer" question from Dan Savage. Plus we'll hear Franken's advice on how to get a US Senator to do what you want (like, say, keep Obamacare).
The show comes out on Wednesday, so subscribe (for free!) and Al Franken will show up in your phone in a couple days and tell you a few things.
