The Majority Report with Sam Seder

Digby (@digby56) and David Feldman (@David_Feldman) join us.

On today's show: Heather "Digby" Parton (@digby56) of joins us to break down the latest news out of Washington. Amy Klobuchar questioned William Barr about obstruction of justice Tuesday; did she know what was coming down the pike? Buzzfeed scoop: Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about the Moscow Tower project. Will this kick off impeachment proceedings and how will the Democratic Party handle it? The influence of left-leaning freshman Dems.

Comedian David Feldman (@David_Feldman) joins us to roll out the new "beta" version of himself, who happens to bear a striking resemblance to our favorite dum dum left Youtuber. Also: happy 20th anniversary to The Sopranos! Here's Sil on the picket lines with UTLA.

On the fun half: Dave Rubin wouldn't read a question about the Majority Report, so our talented viewers took the footage and ran with it. Rush Limbaugh bosses Trump around, tells him to "hang in there." Brian Kilmeade is pissed that Democrats are proposing a living wage. Attorney General nominee William Barr doesn't reject the possibility of jailing journalists. Fox News correspondent in Guatemala harasses refugees, re-stokes fears about the caravan. Anand Ghirihadiras says every age of inequality has its own bullshit and social mobility in the US is a terrible lie. Anand also says Davos is a "family reunion of world ruiners," because it is. Plus, your calls and IMs!
