KITM could be referred to as the “Super Bowl of podcasts”... There are some legal problems with that, but also who wants to rekindle that whole Armando vs. Timberlake debate?

David Waldman helps us through a post Super Bowl and Nunes memo world: Some Philadelphia Eagles show they are patriots by declining a visit to the White House.

Greg Dworkin reminds us that the Super Bowl is over and it’s time to get to work.

The Nunes Memo didn’t work as a political maneuver, yet. But, that doesn’t mean Trump and friends won’t stop trying to destroy the FBI and betray the country. Some Republicans are trying to distance themselves from the memo, and some are trying to distance themselves, period. Some remain lashed ever tighter, and will sink or swim with Donald Trump. Those people will help Trump keep the Democrat’s rebuttal from being released. Beyond the memo, John McCain and Christopher Coons are introducing a new immigration bill that omits wall funding. You can imagine how well that is going over. Donald doesn’t want universal health care, because look at how everybody else hates it. Everybody else disagrees.

All that looks like great news for Democrats… maybe. Greg goes over the many good signs presently being revealed for November. It also helps that we have a lot of great new candidates, and not a neo-Nazi Holocaust denier in the bunch.

FBI messages show the bureau's real reaction to Trump firing James Comey. Many legal scholars doubt a U.S. vs. Trump case is possible, Armando calls in to say they are wrong, and follows with an analysis of how and why.

Power goes to another head, this time the head of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

If any employee from the Department of Homeland Security is looking for their lost secret anti-terrorist manual, they should stop by the CNN News lost and found immediately.
