there's a theory that Kilymnik set the Trump team up. He used secured phone lines for all his calls except those made to the Trump team. The idea goes that he knew they'd be caught out, as he knew he was being surveilled, and that the unrest it would cause in the US would cause massive unrest and dysfunction. The Trump team shouldn't have been shady or foolish enough to fall for it, but that they did, inadvertently meant the Russians won more than the election.

excellent report on a critical and complex issue. one small correction: the poverty your guest described as "difficult for Americans to" imagine (maybe not the word he used) is difficult for many but not all Americans. some Americans are actually living in dire poverty, without running water or electricity in the home, if they have a home at all, and eating meat once a week with luck.

love how Trumpcast takes me deep into inquiries I would never have thought about pursuing. not that the discoveries are necessarily encouraging but I always come away better informed. thanks

do "differences of opinion" indicate a divided party? or just a sign that folks are creatively engaged in the process?

would someone please tell your guest how to pronounce AOC's name? it will probably enhance his credibility.

big fan of Virginia Heffernan , but she's got a blind spot when it comes to Israel. she needs to work on that

sounds good. I am still one of your loyal listeners on a fixed income with nothing left over but when my ship comes in, I'll be happy to support the superlative work you and other Slate stars do.

hello, when rep Omar spoke truth about aipac, Congress passes a resolution, NO resolution for African Americans. SMH, why not?

It's not just men. It's boomer men. We should lock them out of public service and positions of authority. And keep them away from women. Because boomer guys are just gross.

The group that wouldn't let things go are the Republicans. in the past, they kept trying to prosecute Hillary Clinton on Benghazi although they couldn't find anything. The Republicans are the ones that go off the deep end to try to prove something that they feel is true that end up not being true. If Trump is not a manchurian president then I'd let it go. Id just be ready to vote in the next election to get him out of office. But, there are just too many events that has happened in the trump admin to ignore or just brush off as coincidental or trump incompetence or him being a blithering idiot. The stuff that Trump does is just to fishy to not have suspicions. You seem to want to give him the benefit of doubt. But if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, chances are it's a duck. I'd be surprised, shocked, and astounded if he was proved to not have some crooked ties with Russia considering all these meetings he's had with Putin alone.

very anxiety-inducing, listening to you rush your guest. yeah, his pace is less driven than many speakers on the pod, but not nearly as aggravating as the host's leaning on him.

Was thrilled to hear Trumpcast's "Trump" speaking on Randy Rainbow's newest video CELL BLOCK TANGO. Thrilled!!! Trumpcast's rules.

wow!!! great show. I feel now like mainstream media isn't even talking about what's really going on. they're missing the point. may sound perverse but this broadcast makes me feel safer ... by dint of being informed. thanks.
