Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Donald Trump and his American Shitshow continue today, and he has now received a very helpful hand from Congressional Democrats for reasons that beggar the imagination. Congress is on the verge of reauthorizing a warrantless mass surveillance program that civil libertarians on the right and left have long opposed and characterize as a blatant violation of the U.S. Constitution's 4th Amendment privacy protections against unwarranted search and seizure. ELIZABETH GOITEIN, Co-director of the Liberty and National Security Program at NYU's Brennan Center for Justice, explains Section 702, the efforts to block its reauthorization, and why it is that many Congressional Democrats are willing to join Republicans in granting the Trump Administration extraordinary new powers to covertly spy on every American's phone calls and emails without warrant, due diligence or even probable cause. Also: in normal times, the allegations that Trump paid hush money to a porn star right before the 2016 election and the sordid sex and blackmail scandal now roiling Missouri's Republican governor, Eric Greitens, would be huge news everywhere, but are barely breaking the national news radar. Democrats got more encouraging election news in Tuesday's special elections around the country -- especially in Wisconsin, where the results seem to be freaking out the state's controversial GOP Governor Scott Walker. Finally, the Interior Departments response to the mass resignation today of nearly every member of the bipartisan National Park Service Advisory Board is almost as disturbing, if not more so, than the resignation itself.   Brad Friedman, Elizabeth Goitein, Desi Doyen
