Craig Unger on Kleptocracy

Craig Unger on Kleptocracy

2019-08-2101:04:36

We interview Vanity Fair contributor Craig Unger, the author of the New York Times-bestselling book House of Trump, House of Putin: The Untold Story of Donald Trump and the Russian Mafia, a must-read and deeply researched book that reminds us yet again that Trump properties are a laundromat for Russian mafia money, and what this means for our democracy.
This week marks the two-year anniversary of the violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville where anti-racist activist Heather Heyer was murdered. In this episode of Gaslit Nation, Sarah speaks briefly about the legacy of Charlottesville before Andrea continues our Get Un-Gaslit Summer Reading Series with an interview with sociologist Dr. Crystal Fleming, the author of How to Be Less Stupid About Race: On Racism, White Supremacy and the Racial Divide.
Our little podcast is 1-year-old. We cannot express our gratitude enough to our Patreon donors and all our listeners who helped turn a fledgling biweekly show that we thought only our moms and our far-right stalkers would listen to into a community, giving us the independence we need to speak out on the issues of the day. We end the show by giving advice on how to survive encroaching authoritarianism and list some of the things we are grateful for – and that we will continue to fight for, odds be damned – in the year to come.
Here is Part II of our interview with the counter-terrorism and intelligence expert Malcolm Nance. Nance is an MSNBC commentator and author who is today best known for being the first person to write THE book about Russia’s attack on the 2016 election as it was happening. (That book – The Plot to Hack America: How Putin's Cyberspies and WikiLeaks Tried to Steal the 2016 Election – was published in October 2016). 
Our Get Un-Gaslit Summer Reading Series continues with this two-part interview with the counter-terrorism and intelligence expert Malcolm Nance. Nance is an MSNBC commentator and author who is today best known for being the first person to write THE book about Russia’s attack on the 2016 election as it was happening. (That book – The Plot to Hack America: How Putin's Cyberspies and WikiLeaks Tried to Steal the 2016 Election – was published in October 2016). 
This week we kick off our Get Un-Gaslit Summer Reading Series with Greg Sargent, the author of the 2018 book An Uncivil War: Taking Back Our Democracy in an Age of Trumpian Disinformation and Thunderdome Politics. Sargent is also known for writing The Plum Line blog for The Washington Post.
Happy Fourth of July! In 1787, Benjamin Franklin famously declared “A republic – if you can keep it.” In these compiled interviews, experienced grassroots leaders tell us how we can keep our republic. 
We join the women of the great podcast Mueller, She Wrote to debate a matter of vast geopolitical importance – the 1985 black comedy Clue! (In case you are counting, that’s one plus two plus one plus one people appearing on this show). Together we discuss why the McCarthy-era Clue explains so much about our Roy Cohn-created present, including our tenuous grasp on reality and our deep longing for alternative endings.
This week, we interview Billie Winner-Davis, a social worker and the mother of Reality Winner, an air force veteran and the former NSA contractor who provided The Intercept with an NSA report on the Kremlin’s hacking of US voting systems at a time when the issue was still largely being debated and the public kept very much in the dark.
We are back with Part II of our discussion of the 2020 battleground state Ukraine. Our special focus again is on Rudy Giuliani who multiple experts have said should register for the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA) given his many clients overseas, including several who serve the Kremlin’s interests. Will 2016 repeat in 2020, with Giuliani filling the role of Paul Manafort who worked as an unregistered foreign agent?

Started with "Coalition of Curruption" from Jan 23rd, and have listened to every episode since. Andrea and Sarah are true American badasses! Journalists that young Americans should look up to. They are standing up against somthing that scares most of us into passivity. Follow the action guide, and let's hold political figures accountable together! Keep fighting the good fight ladies!!!

Too many people treat politics like sports. We shouldn't arbitrarily choose our team and stay loyal just because they are our team.

episode 30: in listing trump's monuments to himself, you neglected the biggest, maybe too obvious one of all: his southern border wall, paid for in just the way he likes best- the taxpayers.

and to your point I think in a lot of ways Trump is acting out what this government shutdown is, another way to look at it, he's trying to get out - he's waiting for the American public to fire him waiting for impeachment because he doesn't have a way out... because he can't quit on Putin but if the American public impeaches him he can say, well you know I couldn't do anything about that Vlad old buddy. I think he would be happy to be out I think he is in fact more afraid of the Russians who have a very long reach then he is of anything that the American public can do to him

what bothers me is that the American public isn't calling for impeachment that there are so much on social media that appears to be a moderate voice going oh well we don't need to go that far and the fact that they don't understand what impeachment is there confusing it with being indicted for crimes and not impeachable offenses

This podcast has inspired me in the midst of darkness and despair. You've reminded me that not only can we choose faith over despair, now is a time when making that conscious act to CHOOSE faith over despair becomes an act of empowered rebellion and radical loyalty to that which we love. Of course, in order to truly choose for what we love, we must KNOW what we love, as Sydette Harry described so well with "does baby have hat". Thank you!

I really want to like this. But they both sound bored, flat and tired. I can be that by myself.

I think what you're doing is superb journalism. This kind of reporting and in-depth analysis about the Trump-Russia skullduggery is critical and needed more than ever during these critical times. Thank you so much! I'll be listening!

Not worth your time. Over-sensationalist and void of objectivity.

Hunter Cawood I've only listened to three minutes of one episode so far, so I haven't formulated any opinions yet. Just out of curiosity though, how much of the podcast did you listen to before making your conclusion? Have you listened to an entire episode to completion? Who knows, maybe I'll ultimately agree with you. But if I do, it will only be after listening to at least two or three episodes to completion.
