Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Mike Rogers testified for five hours today before the U.S. House Intelligence Committee, confirming the existence of a counterintelligence probe of alleged Russian interference into the 2016 U.S. Presidential election, and batting down charges by President Trump that then-President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower before leaving office. We're joined by national security journalist Marcy Wheeler of for analysis of today's hearing, with a focus on unanswered questions surrounding the leaked classified information documenting a phone conversation between Trump's National Security Advisor Mike Flynn and the Russian ambassador to the U.S. Why was Flynn's conversation captured and transcribed by the Intel Community in the first place, before the content of that discussion concerning sanctions against the former Soviet Union, was leaked to media, resulting in Flynn's firing? Wheeler explains the legal statutes allowing the covert collection of information, the lack of public evidence concerning Democrats' charges that Russia stole DNC emails and shared them with WikiLeaks, and whether she has confidence in the Congressional and FBI investigations into all of these matters. Also today: Trump's approval rating hits a new low, and a federal appellate court protects a Constitutional right in Mississippi by blocking another GOP attempt to close the state's last remaining abortion clinic...  Brad Friedman, Marcy Wheeler, Desi Doyen
