Jeff Hauser: Joe Biden’s putting together the most progressive team in the modern era

We kick off the show with a look at what was truly a banner week in right-wing tantrums, with Trump lambasting Attorney General Bill Barr for not backing his election fraud conspiracy theories, a civil war breaking out in conservative media over the upcoming Senate runoff races in Georgia and recently pardoned former General Michal Flynn joining calls for Trump to suspend the Constitution and declare martial law. 
 
Then we're joined by Jeff Hauser, director of The Revolving Door Project at the Center for Economic and Policy Research to talk about Biden's early staff picks, how the new administration can interpret existing laws to advance their agenda even if Mitch McConnell controls the Senate, how to manage a far-right Supreme Court and more.
