6-10-20 Nicole Sandler Show – Our Surveillance State with Jason Leopold

Download here or click below to play   The House Judiciary Committee today held a hearing on racial profiling and police brutality. It's long past due. Senate Republicans have promised their own police reform legislation, though their original deadline of Friday to release their plan has been scrapped. On the other side of the issue is the Dept of Justice, who's fighting incoming on a number of fronts today, which I'll detail during the program. Today's guest is Jason Leopold, senior investigative reporter for Buzzfeed News, who broke the story last week that the DEA was given sweeping new authority [...]

6-4-20 Nicole Sandler Show – Dystopian America Thursday with Howie Klein

Download here or click below to play   While many of us remain safely at home, thousands of people took to the streets this week to protest the epidemic of police brutality that, like Covid-19, affects people of color the most. The administration is showing their fascist tendencies more each day, as they place the blame for the violence and looting on the left, when evidence shows the work of right wing and white supremacist groups leading the charge. I have a few words to say about the administration's unfounded blaming of AntiFa as the chief offenders, something the FBI [...]

10-25-19 Nicole Sandler Show – Finally Friday with Lisa Graves to Explain it All

Another day, another bombshell. This time we learn that in his attempt to investigate the "oranges" of the Russia probe, Donald Trump has turned his legal thugs on the intelligence community.

Lisa's the perfect person to speak to these issues as she served as the Chief Counsel for Nominations on the United States Senate Judiciary Committee under Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT), and as Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the United States Department of Justice during [...]
