Trump’s In-Your-Face Kleptocracy | Meet Two Dem Congressional Candidates Who Might Change the Balance of Power

We kick off this week's show with a rundown, incomplete but depressing, of what we know so far about how Trump and his inner circle have profited from the presidency.  


Then we're joined by two Democratic candidates vying to run against Rep. John Faso (R-NY) in one of the hottest swing districts this cycle, New York's 19th. This is the district that got a lot of attention in 2016, when Zephyr Teachout challenged Faso. It could decide the balance of power in the House this fall.


First, we speak with Brian Flynn, a businessman who combines progressive politics with a willingness to fight. You can find out more about his platform by visiting https://www.brianflynn.us/.


Then we're joined by Antonio Delgado, an attorney and a naturally gifted speaker who is the only Democratic candidate to have raised more cash than Faso. Learn more about him at https://www.delgadoforcongress.com/.


And we'll be featuring more of the candidates in NY 19 in subsequent shows!
