8-8-23 Nicole Sandler Show – Trump Trial Talk with Marcy ‘Emptywheel’ Wheeler

  View on Zencastr   Today in Atlanta, GA, the roads surrounding the Fulton County Courthouse were closed in anticipation of the next indictment coming for the former guy. That'll be #4. And that's on top of his already being found liable for rape and defamation of E. Jean Carroll. But the case is still ongoing, as his big mouth after the verdict got him hit with another defamation suit. Too bad for him, his counter-suit was just dismissed by the judge... Plus there's a trial date set for March in a NYC courtroom for Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg's case [...]

7-5-23 Nicole Sandler Show – It’s Another Emptywheel Wednesday with Marcy Wheeler

  View on Zencastr   It's difficult to come back from a four-day weekend. That's compounded when you do a news-based show but took the weekend off from all news-related information. Seriously, that's what I did, and it felt great. But I got to work last night catching up on all the things I wanted to ask Marcy Wheeler about today. Marcy's living in Ireland now, so due to the time difference, we record her appearances in the morning my time. Today's recording sounds great, but the video got corrupted (damn gremlins). So today's a day for listening... and there's [...]

I thought that having Attorney General Merrick Garland testifying today before the Senate Judiciary Committee would provide more than enough material to deal with for the hour. Unfortunately, much of it was unwatchable.. Republicans have become so ugly, so aggressive and confrontational, and they are just completely full of shit. They learned well from their media appendage, Fox (Not) News, because they just make shit up. [...]

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) The best layed plans and all that... I recorded a great interview yesterday to air today, but the audio was corrupted and it's not fit for air. So... the short version of the story is that we just talked -- you on the phones and I sounded off too about lots of breaking news today. Staring with Merrick Garland announcing a special counsel to deal with all of Trump's crimes. Then Biden gives MBS immunity for the murder of Jamal Khossigi?!?! And [...]

11-14-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Marcy Monday Another Emptywheel Update

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) I've been consumed by the midterm elections for the past few weeks. Now that it's (almost) all over, it's time to figure out what's been happening with the numerous investigations into the former guy and his sycophantic insurrectionist followers. For that, we turn to Marcy Wheeler, independent journalist extraordinaire, who covers it all at emptywheel.net.  And you can now find her on Mastadon too, @emptywheel@mastodon.social. Lots to talk about today from the elections to Merrick Garlands progress, to the 1-6 committee and [...]

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Lucky is not a word I'd usually use to describe my situation, but this time, I'll make an exception. I'm very lucky not to be in the direct line of Hurricane Ian. The photo on today's show card is of the guy who became a South FL superstar during Hurricane Andrew. Most who experienced that storm first-hand credit Bryan Norcross for getting them through that terrifying night, myself included. That's why that picture of Norcross' coverage of Ian is so shocking... (Click [...]

8-11-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Merrick Garland Speaks, Lisa Graves Explains

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Once again we're in uncharted territory. 'Unprecedented' is the word that should win the prize for most-invoked over the last five years, and here we are again. A few firsts, as history has been made this week. Almost everything about Trump is unprecedented, including apparently his actions in taking classified documents from the White House when he finally left. The smear campaign against the FBI, DoJ and the AG -- led by the Former Guy-- is also unprecedented, as was Merrick Garland's [...]

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Things are getting stranger and stranger, and it feels like the nation is one simmering pressure cooker. Between the Rittenhouse trial and the trial for the murderers of Ahmaud Arbery going on at the same time the House select committee on 1/6 seems to be kicking into action, and some of the more hardcore of the insurrectionists are finally being sentenced to more than a slap on the wrist, the American right wing seems to be more empowered than ever. And we [...]

That thread is somehow controlled by the GOP and Sen Joe Manchin, despite the fact that the Democrats control both houses of Congress and the Oval Office. Mother Jones' Ari Berman has been writing about the Republican party's assault on voting rights for many years. His latest article is the cover story of the current issue, "Jim Crow Killed Voting Rights for Generations. Now the GOP is Repeating History". Ari is my [...]
