October 29 Show: Comey Drops a Bomb; Campus Speech Wars; Rick Perlstein on the GOP After Trump

This week, we speak with Ian Millhiser, a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress Action Fund and legal analyst for Think Progress, about FBI Director James Comey's oddly vague letter to Congress regarding emails reportedly found on a computer shared by Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin.


Then we're joined by journalist E.J. Graff, a senior fellow at the Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism and managing editor of the WaPo's Monkey Cage blog, to talk about what she discovered when she drilled down past the headlines of some high-profile campus controversies for a recent report released by Pen America. Graff's observations may surprise you.


Finally, we'll speak to historian and author Rick Perlstein about the future of the GOP after the rise of Trumpism, and the potential for Election Day violence.
