    Pelosi: "Republicans want to take away your healthcare. Vote to save it!"

    Pelosi: "Republicans want to take away your healthcare. Vote to save it!"

    Scott talks with elected DNC member Christine Pelosi about the Trump Administration's failure to adequately respond to the pandemic. They spoke about the Heroes Act coronavirus relief package Speaker Pelosi passed in May which Senate Majority leader "Moscow" Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump refused to pass before the election. They also spoke about her book “The Nancy Pelosi Way." You can find the book at Barnes & Noble and Amazon.

    "Donald Trump's theory of the case is that he would be cruising to reelection," says Christine Pelosi. "As he told the people of Erie, Pennsylvania, he wouldn't have even been there campaigning asking them for their vote we're at not for COVID. So he says his theory is 'look, but for COVID I did a great job as president.' The facts say otherwise. Even, if you accept that theory, then you would have to say, 'Well, then. Why didn't you handle COVID better?'"

    "We learned from Bob Woodward's tapes and recordings with the president that the president said he played down the dangers of the virus publicly," explained Pelosi, "including the fact that it was airborne. Very early on because he didn't want to put the American people into a panic. He didn't want to risk the economy. As it turns out he was risking the economy and people's lives. And so the second thing we learned was that when Jared Kushner - who has no government experience and no public health experience and no public health advocacy experience - decided that he was going to be in charge."

    Mary L. Trump blames her Uncle's "criminal" coronavirus response for 200,000+ American deaths

    Mary L. Trump blames her Uncle's "criminal" coronavirus response for 200,000+ American deaths

    Scott talks with Mary L. Trump in this fascinating and wide-ranging interview. Mary told us about the details of her NY Times #1 bestselling book "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man," including why she went public. We also asked Donald Trump's niece for her insights into his failed coronavirus response, which she calls "criminal," as well as NBC's decision to air a town hall last week when her Uncle backed out of the formal debate because as she says, he is a "coward."

    "When Mitt Romney got taken to the woodshed for saying to somebody he was debating, 'I bet you $10,000," because he was such an out of touch elitist," said Mary L. Trump about last week's dueling town hall debates. "And now here's Donald who probably doesn't have 10 bucks in the bank saying [owing] $410 million isn't a lot of money."

    "What I worried about and have thought for a long time is that the worst possible scenario would be if he got COVID-19, but either had a mild case or a moderate case from which he recovered quickly," says the President's niece about his recent illness that forced him to go to Walter Reed hospital for experimental medical treatment. "And that's exactly what happened. [T]he reason I thought that that was going to be disasters because of what he did afterward, telling people that they should not let COVID-19 dominate their lives. That."

    Meet the journalist who asked Trump if he "regrets all the lying" to the American people

    Meet the journalist who asked Trump if he "regrets all the lying" to the American people

    Scott talks to S.V. Daté the world traveler who is now White House Correspondent for HuffPost. Daté is the author of a new book entitled, “The Useful Idiot: How Donald Trump Killed the Republican Party with Racism and the Rest of Us with Coronavirus.” Now only did S.V about what it's like to work in the White House as a journalist, he also diagnosed some of the problems that are plaguing American politics today and the GOP's failure to take responsibility for the security risk and governance problems Donald Trump causes.

    "Part of the problem [Trump] has is he just lies all the time, and just says random things that have bare no relationship to reality," the veteran White House correspondent told Scott. "And I've often thought if he just kept quiet, locked himself in the face, you know, for three years, his [approval] poll numbers would probably be at like 55%, you know, given the economy that he inherited. Instead, he never exceeded like 45%."

    "The Republican party, frankly, failed us," concluded Daté. "In a two-party system, each party has a responsibility to make sure that their nominee can do the job of commander-in-chief, and do the job of an emergency manager-in-chief, and they failed. And here we are."

    A WaPo journalist exposed Trump's selfish handling of Covid relief checks

    A WaPo journalist exposed Trump's selfish handling of Covid relief checks

    Scott talks with Toluse Olorunnipa, who covers the White House for the Washington Post and is a political analyst for CNN who blew the lid off of Trump’s self-serving decision to stamp his name all over the last round of covid stimulus checks. Toluse told us how that all happened behind the scenes. Toluse also peels back the layers of how things are really working in DC. If you have wondered how professional journalists managed to keep the public informed during a global pandemic, then you need to listen to this entire interview.

    "The president is definitely known for liking to have his name on things. He considers himself a master brander and when he was informed that he was going to be signing this Cares Act... he tried to figure out a way he could capitalize on this and maybe get a little bit of a political benefit," says Olorunnipa. "He had support from the Treasury Department and Secretary Mnuchin, who essentially let the president know that while he couldn't sign the checks physically because there's sort of regulations that prevent political officials from signing payments to Americans, e could have his name in the memo line, and... associate himself with this money that Americans were getting due to this bill that was passed by Congress. And he was all on board with that. Our reporting shows that he was very well informed about the process. He enthusiastically supported it, and he liked the idea of being able to put his name on these checks and associate himself with these payments that Americans are getting to try to tie them over in the middle of this economic storm that the country is facing."

    "Rigged" author explains how Russia is interfering in the 2020 election today

    "Rigged" author explains how Russia is interfering in the 2020 election today

    Scott speaks with author David Shimer, whose new book "Rigged: America, Russia, and One Hundred Years of Covert Electoral Interference" has received critical acclaim, including from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Shimer is a Yale fellow and associate of the Wilson Center think tank whose work has appeared in Foreign Affairs and the New York Times.

    "I show how the Soviet Union in the United States interfered in elections all over the world during the Cold War," Shimer told us. "[The book shows] how Russia is interfering in elections all over the world, in this century right now. It shows how Russia interfered in America's 2016 election and gets into both that operation and its aftermath."

    "What I'd like to emphasize to your audience is just not to fall for the temptation when something happens, like if emails are released or if a new tactic is introduced," David presciently explained two weeks ago, "I think that the daily media has a tendency to ring the alarm bells and induce almost, or provide a sense of panic." In light of the Russian election interference scheme we are witnessing President Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani's conduct in real-time, it's a must-listen interview for anyone participating in the 2020 election.
