Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Each session of Congress lasts two years. Today, the House returns to convene the second half of the 117th Congress. Unfortunately, the country is a mess, and the prospects for a complete turnaround aren't great. But we'll take today to bring us up to date on where they are and what they're doing... It's an anything goes Monday. Today, I shared a note from a listener, Patrick in Germany, who shared this note and the following video: I came across a short [...]

1-6-22 Nicole Sandler Show – January 6 One Year Later -Thursday with Howie Klein

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   One year ago today, the nation watched in horror as insurrectionists stormed the Capitol. They had erected a gallows outside the building and were marauding through the Capitol hallways chanting "Hang Mike Pence," while others searched and menacingly called for Nancy Pelosi. I have a pretty good idea of what they would have done if they found either of them, and it's not pretty. There was a glimmer of hope once the building was cleared and Congress resumed certifying the electoral college [...]

12-29-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Marcy Wheeler Explains It All

  Not only are we fast approaching the new year, we're also coming up on the one year anniversary of the attack on the US Capitol by a mob of Donald Trump supporters. We live in a nation of very gullible people. Many of them honestly believed the lies from TFG and thought they were saving our nation from those who seek to destroy it. (See: Opposite World). Most of us watched in horror as the insurrectionists entered sacred American ground, and were further horrified when they were all allowed to leave, with no arrests that day. But now, over [...]

9-14-21 Nicole Sandler Show – The FOIA Master Jason Leopold Strikes Again

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   The FBI dubbed my friend Jason Leopold a "FOIA Terrorist." It's a label he wears proudly, but it bugs me... because he's not a terrorist. Jason is a hero. Digging deep to uncover the dirt that the powers that be don't want you to see. So I prefer to refer to Jason Leopold as The FOIA Master! And he joins us today. Jason, using his immense power of the pen, filed the paperwork and, in return, was able to get an exclusive [...]

8-9-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Dept of Injustice with Marcy Wheeler

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     The US Department of Justice has been walking a tightrope for years now. While promising Equal Justice Under the Law, it more realistically offers a system of Injustice and Inequality. Throughout the Trump term, the DOJ struggled to maintain any semblance of integrity. And in the final days of his presidency, the former guy attempted a coup, using the Attorney General to do his dirty work. Details of just how close we came to losing our democracy are now coming to [...]

7-28-21 Nicole Sandler Show – He Alone Sure Broke It

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) We're living through horribly dysfunctional times. I won't say that if not for Trump, things would be all peachy keen. But I do believe they'd be a lot better than the shit storm we're still experiencing, due to him. And unfortunately, just because he's no longer in office, he's still able to do damage. Today, I speak with Philip Rucker of the Washington Post. He and Carol Leonnig just released their second book about the former guy's time in office. They titled the [...]

7-27-21 Nicole Sandler Show – The Select Committee on 1/6 First Hearing Is In the Books

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Devastating is the word that best describes the testimony by four police officers who helped protect the Capitol from the insurrectionists on January 6. Although we knew what happened and had already heard from some of these officers, today's testimony was - well- devastating. And really sad. Today, I'll share my thoughts and lots of audio/video from today's hearing. Then we'll check in with Carolina Ampudia, the newly-elected president of the Democratic Progressive Caucus of Florida. She took over just in [...]

They saved the biggest and most damaging for last. Lisa Graves of True North Research, a former Deputy Assistant Attorney General under Clinton, joins in at the top of the show to explain the ramifications of the court's decisions on our voting rights and the continuation of dark money in politics.
