Over the last few days, President Donald Trump has called for the death penalty for drug dealers, the end of the Mueller investigation and hired the lawyer behind the conspiracy theory that the FBI is framing Trump for Russian collusion. Jim Braude asks Heather Cox Richardson, professor of History at Boston College, and Tom Whalen, professor of social science at Boston University, whether there is a larger strategy behind it all.

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) joined Jim Braude to discuss the future of the GOP, his back-and-forth with President Trump and whether he’ll challenge him for the White House in 2020.

Rep. Diana DiZiglio joined Jim Braude to discuss her story of harassment in the House of Representatives, the non-disclosure agreement she signed and later broke and her push to eliminate the use of NDAs in the House entirely.
