Leid Stories--As A Billionaire Republican-Turned Democrat Running for President in 2020, How Do Rate Mike Bloomberg's Campaign So Far?--01.28.20
Former national security adviser John Bolton's book, "The Room Where It Happened," isn't even out yet but it's causing shockwaves--and in a trial in which he's not a witness and probably won't be, even though he's willing to testify.
Republicans are all-out blocking Democrats from getting Bolton and other potential witnesses to testify about his firsthand knowledge of Trump's questionable "quid-pro-quo" dealings with Ukraine and other countries.
Bolton, who has said he will testify if subpoenaed, is seen as a lynchpin in the legal case against Trump.
Chief Justice John Roberts has not yet ruled on whether witness testimony will be allowed in Trump's impeachment trial. But Leid Stories asks: Should witnesses arbitrarily be barred from testifying in a trial--particularly a trial concerning crimes allegedly committed by the president of the United States?

Utrice has taught me to read between the lines on stories she picks apart stories and makes you realize what’s really going on.
Perhaps the most thought-provoking political show on air. Hands-down, the one that most requires you to think. With her broad understanding of the current issues, Utrice Leid won’t simply give the answers away. But you do walk away with some of the best analysis that independent media always provides while demanding audience participation. The anti-mainstream!
Ms. Leid has quite a talent for getting her listeners to think about and analyze a situation. She offers a unique point of view, and tends to point out the not so obvious (or the obvious), that most do not see. She also feels that people need to speak to one another and not at each other. One can see that she values the art of listening. Her ‘let’s agree to disagree’ philosophy is a breath of fresh air. Love the show!
