Progressive politics, news & talk hosted by David Waldman

David Waldman hosts today’s Earth Day special from beneath a fresh layer of the finest organic mulch, just outside KITM World Headquarters:

Don’t cast your vote yet! There’s a new Democratic candidate! Seth Moulton hopes to be the “young Joe Biden” of 2020, but sadly looks to be the “Seth Moulton” of 2020. College Students already have their “Joe Biden”, and it just might be “Joe Biden”.

And, we’re still all reading the Mueller report… well, we aren’t but other people are, and we're reading their latest analysis. Greg Dworkin has no inclination for exoneration but for excoriation. First, William Barr must resign. Barr wasn’t supposed to rebut Robert Mueller. Former federal prosecutors are speaking out in objection. The public is beginning to agree that that a check on Donald Trump is past due. So… how about impeachment? Some Democrats feel that impeachment has a certain harshness they’d prefer not to encounter during any 4 year term with an election in it. So how about the new impeachment, impeachment-lite, impeachment minus the impeachment? Let’s censure!

Meanwhile, Elizabeth Warren wonders if we would like to talk about anything other than Trump during the next 18 months... like maybe solving our nation’s other problems, such as universal child care, or student debt  alleviation... Oh, ok, she’ll talk about impeachment too

Greg ties the present to the past with a discussion of The R’s, the D’s, and the Arrrrr’s and how they were all a bit cooler back in the day.

David brings our attention back to the usual parade of scandals and corruption. A former CIA officer racks his brain to imagine any innocence in the behavior of Chinese national Yujing Zhang’s visit and possible infiltration of Mar-a-Lago. The Russians throw us a bone and let us know what Erik Prince and Moscow’s Money Man discussed in Seychelles. The Trump Organization is suing Rep. Elijah Cummings to block a subpoena for of Trump’s financial records.
