4-15-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Marcy Wheeler on Prosecuting the Insurrectionists

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) We end this week with another visit from Marcy Wheeler. If you're one of the few who don't know, Marcy Wheeler has been doing an amazing job keeping track of all of the Jan 6 insurrectionists at emptywheel.net -- the plea deals, the trials, the investigations. She also is somehow able to stay abreast of the 1-6 Committee's work, the DOJ's work, the SDNY investigation, etc. You get the idea. Today, I pick Marcy's brain about all of this. She answers my questions [...]

2-21-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Presidents’ Day with Marcy Wheeler & Me

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   The studio gremlins got me again today, but we won! Marcy Wheeler lives in Ireland these days, so my showtime of 5pm ET is a bit late for her to come on during the live show. So we taped the interview early this morning. Thankfully the gremlins hadn't yet attacked. In fact, they stayed away until 4:45, when the audio went berserk. I restarted the computer as many times as I could while deleting audio drivers and hoping they'd update and [...]

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 [...]

11-3-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Insurrection Prosecution Update with Marcy Wheeler

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) Last night sucked. People are pissed and they're blaming the Biden administration and the Democrats. And I can't say their blame is totally misplaced. The Democrats have allowed their entire agenda to be hijacked by two Senators out of 50. Their priorities are their benefactors instead of their constituents and the future of this democracy. Rather than dwell on the election disappointments, we'll find out what's being done to hold the insurrectionists who attacked the Capitol on January 6 accountable for their actions. [...]

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 [...]

6-4-21 The Nicole Sandler Show – Insurrectionist & Traitor Update with Marcy Wheeler

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     There have been over 450 arrests of participants in the Jan 6 attack on the Capitol, from "Maga Tourists" to ringleaders. The one person reporting on what's happening in these individual cases is Marcy Wheeler who, these days, is living in Ireland! But she's still doing better reporting on what's happening with these arrests and prosecutions than anyone else, which you can find at emptywheel.net. Marcy joins us today from Ireland. Here's today's comedy from J-L Cauvin and Bruce W. Nelson, [...]

1-14-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Impeached Again Thursday with Howie Klein

Download here or click below to play     Donald Trump will go down in history as the only president to be impeached twice! That was the proper response for Trump's incitement of insurrection in the Capitol last Wednesday. For some reason (lack of a soul or a brain, perhaps), some Republicans went back into the chamber last week after their lives were threatened by the insurgents, and voted NOT to certify the electoral college results. Just incredible. As was the action of some of them who helped the terrorists who stormed the Capitol. When something serious happens, I often [...]

12-4-20 Nicole Sandler Show – Pardon Who? with Marcy Wheeler

Download here or click below to play     Forty-Seven days until the 46th president is sworn in and the 45th is banished from the White House! And poor old #45 seems to be losing what's left of his mind further each day. There's been a lot of chatter in recent days about Trump's pardon plans. He already pardoned Michael Flynn, and the rumors are that he'll pardon his cronies and family members including Giuliani, Jared Kushner, Kushner's dad, Don Jr, Eric and Ivanka... and himself. And this week we learned of a Pay for Pardon scheme that also implicates [...]

9-14-20 Nicole Sandler Show – How Low Can Trump Go? with Marcy Wheeler

< Download here or click below to play     I keep asking how low Trump can go and truly believe there is no bottom. After a weekend filled with one outrageous breaking news story after another, we check in with Marcy Wheeler of emptywheel.net to ride the escalator down through the hell that is Trump's Amerikkka. Plus a new Randy Rainbow video is released in the wake of some not-so-pleasant news about Mr. Rainbow... Here is that new Randy Rainbow video (and here's a link to the article about his sickening tweets from 10 years ago) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TI8RZhhoBM0 [...]

11-22-19 Nicole Sandler Show – Wrapping Up the Week with @GottaLaff & Marcy Wheeler

We made it through another week, including public hearings in the impeachment inquiry and the 5th Democratic primary debate. To help us recap what happened, we're joined by @GottaLaff (who spent her regular Tuesday time on the show as well as Wed and Thu watching the hearings), and the indefatigable Marcy Wheeler, who live Tweeted the hearings and wrote all about them at emptywheel.net
