The Majority Report with Sam Seder

Sam hosts congressional candidate for CA-25 Cenk Uygur and Andy Kindler to break down an absolutely psychotic news week.

On today's show: House judiciary committee votes on articles of impeachment.

Cenk Uygur (@CenkUygur) joins us to discuss his Congressional run for Katie Hill's former seat in California's 25th district: Why he's running, the issues at play, and the lines of attack being used by his enemies. Go to Cenk2020.com to donate! Plus: impeachment.

Andy Kindler (@AndyKindler) joins us to discuss the news of the day. Doug Collins is very mad at Dems for moving the vote from 11:30pm to 10am. Remembering actor Danny Aiello: "Papa Just Wants What's Best For You," "Dellaventura." Dennis Miller claims to be friends with David Bowie on David Spade's show.

On the fun half: Corbyn will not lead labor in another election. Owen Jones explains why Labor was split by Brexit vote. Sanders, Warren, Yang won't cross picket line to debate at Loyola Marymount University. McConnell says he will coordinate with WH counsel before Senate trial. Trump: "I wouldn't mind a long process." Trump supporters threaten violence, second civil war if Trump is removed from office. Joe Biden says m4a would force unions to give up healthcare they fought for. McConnell says he would appoint a justice to vacant seat in 2020. Juan Williams shows that Fox News FBI conspiracy theories are bunk, they flip out. The Bloomberg dance?! Fox guest Don Peebles compares impeachment to being executed for running a stop sign. Flashback: Sam argues estate tax with Peebles on Hayes.
