This week, we're joined by David Dayen, executive editor at The American Prospect, to talk about how the Biden administration could interpret existing laws to get around GOP obstruction in the Senate and deliver real progress on healthcare, wages, the environment and a host of other problems facing the American people.
This week, we're joined by ProPublica reporter Lydia DePillis to discuss Donald Trump's efforts to "burrow" loyalists into the federal civil service and pass or finalize a slew of federal rule changes that threaten to bog down a new administration even as he refuses to acknowledge his defeat.
This week, Cliff Schecter is our guest host while Joshua Holland and Elizabeth Preza have the week off.
Cliff speaks with Kim Lawson, senior editor at Courier, to talk about President-elect Joe Biden's win in Georgia and the state's upcoming Senate run-off elections.

Liz Preza and Joshua Holland kick off this week's show lamenting how utterly exhausting it is that the Donald Trump show just keeps dragging on and on like a horror movie monster that just won't die. They also look at a wild presser by the few remaining lawyers still working for the regime, who are not the best and brightest.
Then we're joined by Princeton historian Kevin Kruse to put this crucial moment in America's often turbulent history into some perspective.
