2598 - GOP Stale Spending Talking Points, Investigating Barr at DOJ, & People Power at Fossil Fuel Companies w/ MR Crew
Sam and Emma discuss the top stories of the week including ongoing infrastructure negotiations, some wins for climate activists, and democrats lining up a legislative agenda post-filibuster. Sam and Emma breakdown the recent memo from Judge Amy Berman Jackson and Bill Barr's role in not charging Trump following the Mueller report, in which Barr's justification of foregoing charges was his own opinion. The two round out the first hour of the show explaining how climate activists are working their way around the worst instincts of fossil fuel corporations, and how the Biden administration is still greenlighting drilling projects.
And in the Fun Half: the Gaza ceasefire doesn't end the Palestinian expulsions, a young black republican from Arizona is running to defeat AOC, Trump doesn't want to crush the dreams and fears of his UFO believer supporter, voting and then holding left candidates accountable, Jamie Dimon and JP Morgan collected nearly $1.5B in consumer overdraft fees, plus your calls and IMs!
