Well, we made it through the first day of public hearings in the impeachment inquiry of Donald J. Trump. We'll have highlights and discussion, and since it's Thursday, Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC to discuss the ramifications, if any, of the hearings.
It's November 13, 2019, a day that will go down in history as the public impeachment hearings for Donald Trump have begun. Ambassador Bill Taylor and Deputy assistant Secretary of State George Kent were the first witnesses. The hearing began at 10am ET, but were still going on at our 3pm showtime, so I carried the last 30 minutes or so of the hearing live. And off we go....
The Impeachment Inquiry is in full swing. But the first phase is investigatory. Depositions are being taken behind closed doors, as the Democrats get all their facts in order before transitioning into the hearing phase, which will be public and, I'm sure, televised. But the Republicans are getting antsy, going so far as to storm the SCIF where today's closed-door testimony is under way. Yesterday brought the most explosive allegations so far. We know about them because Bill Taylor, the highest ranking diplomatic official dealing with Ukraine, released his opening statement. It's truly damning for Don the con. Since [...]
This monumental week ends with more bombshell news reports of the president using his presidential powers to coerce foreign leaders to help Trump take down his political opponents. The Supreme Court today announced they will hear an abortion rights case this term. Today's guest, Jenny Brown, joins in to discuss her new book, "Without Apology: The Abortion Struggle Now". *****Before today's show began, I posted this: As I prepare for today's show, I again watched a video that popped up online yesterday, produced by Matt Orfalea. From what I can tell, he's a Bernie Sanders supporter who produces videos [...]
It's a big day, as Nancy Pelosi yesterday finally came around and announced that she's opened an impeachment inquiry into Donald J. Trump. Nicole begins the show by bringing us up to date on the latest developments. Today's interview is with Bonnie Weinstein, wife of Mikey Weinstein, the founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. She just released a new book, "When Christians Break Bad: Letters from the Insane, Inane and Profane". And I thought my hate mail was bad!
It's the start of another week of The Nicole Sandler Show. As she does each Tuesday, GottaLaff joins Nicole to shoot the shit about the news, which today includes Corey Lewandowski testifying before the House Judiciary Committee, Trump threatening war against Iran, and the world is gearing up for climate week.

Let's Focus on Climate Week since the Dems Stink at Oversight: 'BradCast' 9/17/2019 By Nicole Sandler on 9/17/2019 4:46pm PT It's a somewhat dejected NICOLE SANDLER, once again guest-hosting the BradCast. I’m dejected because [...]
Maya Wiley is one of the calmest, clearest, most reasonable, rational legal-slash-political analysts on my Tee Vee Machine (not to mention a really nice person). In this video segment from MSNBC's "AM Joy," Maya calmly, clearly, reasonably, and rationally explains the standards for impeachment of a sitting president. And if Trump doesn't check off every box, then nobody does or ever will. Take it away Joy Ann Reid and Maya Wiley:
We've arrived at the end of another week, though many didn't. This was the week of Dorian who thankfully spared Puerto Rico and the South Florida coastline, but hit the Bahamas hard, decimating the islands of Abacos and Grand Bahama. Trump couldn't stop embarrassing himself by claiming that Alabama was in the cone of uncertainty (it wasn't). As the death toll rises, Trump continues to divert out attention away from the horrible things he's doing to the US. Will Bunch of the Philadelphia Inquirer is my guest to officially close the book on summer 2019.
Fifty years ago today was day two of the Woodstock Festival of Music and Art. Billed as Three Days of Peace and Music, it was just what the times demanded. Unfortunately, we seem unable to re-create that moment in time. We'll look back on that time, mark the death of Elvis Presley on this date in 1977, and explore what's happening in the news today. Our interview today is with Jim Lardner, who has a piece up in the American Prospect asking, "Have Democrats Forgotten How to Do Oversight?" It's a really important question with some actionable advice [...]
