Love your cast...

Love your podcast ladies. Always engaging and enjoyable. Just one little point that everyone - journalists and casters alike - seems to forget or not to know: Mueller wrote his public report ‘media ready’, inappropriate information never included in the first place. Any redactions Barr made were only to conceal information he found too distasteful to reveal.
Whatever Mueller’s faults, he doesn’t need to be schooled in writing an investigative report for public consumption by the likes of William Barr.

Ear garbage

Honestly nothing of value said unless keeping people distracted, divided and thinking about nonsense is the goal.
