EIn today's episode, Cliff and I talk in depth about the ongoing mess in Turkey, and the latest on impeachment, including Nancy Pelosi deliciously taking Trump down in a key meeting yesterday, Trump's bizarre letter to Turkish President Erdogan, the US bombing its own bases in Syria, and finally we close with a remembrance of Congressman Elijah Cummings.

Rudy's in trouble (the latest on impeachment)

EThe impeachment inquiry continues to heat up, with yet another poll showing a majority of Americans want to see Trump impeached and removed from office. In today's episode, we dig deeper on Rudy Giuliani's new woes, John Bolton's involvement, all the upcoming testimony before the House impeachment committee (there's a LOT coming), and the latest on the Turkey mess.

Seb Gorka's Affogato (with guest Jared Yates Sexton)

EToday we have a long chat with author Jared Yates Sexton about Trump's and the GOP's base, how the Republicans consistently fool themselves on the issues, and what we can do, if anything, to win back the messaging war from people who have lied themselves into believing they're the most oppressed people on the planet. We talked for nearly an hour and 40 minutes, so there's a lot more than just that in the talk, but that's the leitmotif as it were. (And we also have a little discussion about Seb Gorka's totally fey coffee.) This is a 15-minute excerpt of the nearly 1 hour 40 minute podcast.

Bill Scher on Impeachment

EBill Scher, contributing editor to Politico Magazine, joins us again for an extended discussion about all the latest impeachment news. Among other things, we get into the latest polls, Trump refusing to let Amb. Sondland appear before the House, Lindsey Graham threatening to make next year all about Biden and Ukraine, and then we end with a chat about the controversy over Ellen DeGeneres being nice to George W. Bush at a recent football game, which leads us into a larger discussion about when, if ever, it's okay to embrace once-bad (maybe still bad?) Republicans. (And it's possible we ended with a discussion of Ivanka's recent wardrobe malfunction (but was it?) at the UN.) This is a free episode.

The latest on Impeachment

ECliff and I discuss a slew of new impeachment updates, including: the concerted GOP effort to smear the whistleblower; the revelation that Sec of State Pompeo was on the fateful call with the Ukraine president (and lied about it); the new that AG Barr has been traveling the world to shake down allies like Italy, Australia and the UK to help his effort to debunk the Mueller probe; Trump's new messaging that the entire country will collapse into a civil war should he be impeached; and the forgotten news that Trump told the Russians he was okay with them attacking the election in 2016 (and thus, would be okay with them doing it again in 2020).

Trump commits treason with Ukraine (special guest Greg Pinelo weighs in)

ECliff and I discuss the latest in Democratic politics with political messaging consultant Greg Pinelo, who worked for Obama and many other Democratic candidates over the years. We talk to Greg about Trump's latest treason with Ukraine, and more generally how Democrats can win in 2020. Don't be fooled by my short description, it's a 90-minute rocking conversation!

Trump commits treason with Ukraine (special guest Greg Pinelo weighs in)

Corey Lewandowski should be in jail

ETrump's former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, testified (if you can call it that) before the House Judiciary Committee yesterday as part of its impeachment hearings. Lewandowski pretty much refused to say anything, claiming that his conversations with Trump were protected by "executive privilege." They're not. So why didn't Democrats hold Lewandowski in contempt and throw him in jail? That's what we'd all like to know, and that's what we discuss at length in today's podcast. We also go on a good tangent about health care and the 2020 election, we talk about Trump's new National Security Adviser (who's a total kiss-ass), and about Netanyahu being on the ropes in Israel's recent election. This is one of our free episodes.

Why #SharpieGate could spell trouble for Trump in 2020

EIn today's episode, Cliff and I talk about #SharpieGate -- Trump sextupling down on his claim that Hurricane Dorian was expected to hit Alabama, when it wasn't -- and why the story is a great foil for beating Trump in 2020. We also discuss GOP Rep. Dan Crenshaw's creepy views on guns and domestic violence. This is a 5-minute excerpt of the 46-minute episode.
