Special prosecutor

New AG should be kept but scope broadened to include Trump and Barr actions while in office, and they should not be limited in their scope. Finances and tax forms should be open to scrutiny. Even Nixon had to pay for his tax errors. Nearly a million dollars.

Inspires me to seek more answers!

I have learned to question everything. I don’t rely completely on just one news channel. Ari Melber is one of the few I always become better by listening.

Changes in podcast publishing ?

Is there a known issue with podcast hosting service ? The inconsistency and delays in releasing podcast for #1 in cable news at 6pm for two weeks straight is disappointing to fans of The Beat. You can do better !
