Zephyr Teachout Plans to Wield the Rule of Law as a “Sword” Against Trump’s Corruption

This week, we kick off the show with a double-segment with Zephyr Teachout, the Fordham University legal scholar running to become the next Attorney General of New York. Teachout explains that because the Trump Organization is headquartered in The Empire State, the NYAG's office has a unique capacity to police the Trump crime family's potential abuses of power and its labrynthian web of foreign business entanglements.  

 

Then we're joined by Washington Monthly contributor John Stoehr to talk about a week in which more shoes dropped in the sprawling Kremlingate scandal than Imelda Marcos ever had in her closet.
