The best and fastest news source

Wide ranging, civil, thorough. I live in Oregon but check here daily for national news. Excellent interviews with excellent sources. As callers often say, Brian is a national treasure.

The Right Questions

The Right Questions to ask in every interview are: why aren’t the people directly involved in the Ukraine scandal allowed to testify under oath in the open & televised hearings? One would think Mulvaney, Pompeo, Eisenberg, Pence, etc would be able to defend the president if they were forced to testify. Why are they blocked? Why aren’t the relevant documents released? How can a trial be conducted without the underlying evidence? Why isn’t the Supreme Court intervening to allow the truth to come out? Why aren’t you guys asking these questions instead of about the whistleblower and Hunter Biden, which is distracting & irrelevant?

No more

Enough
I’m done - I’m against Trunp but enough is enough. The election is a now less then a year away.
A year wasted fighting - with a already known result. All dems for impeachment. All rep against. Just trying to score political points.
So.....
No health care.
No immigration reform
No infrastructure
No tax reform
No climate goals as a nation

More fighting and fund raising to stay in power.
The political class must go !
Vote out incumbents !!
