Ep. 23 – FBI on Russia, Trumpcare Troubles, Bogus Budget, and Laptop Ban
Matt | On 23, Mar 2017
This week’s episode takes us to Capitol Hill for updates on the latest drama with the FBI Director James Comey. We see what has been revealed so far with his agency regarding the Russia investigation into Election 2016. We also cover breaking news (that’s really not news) from Devin Nunes (R-CA), the House Intelligence Committee Chairman, regarding surveillance on Trump’s transition team.
Find out what’s going on with the Senate confirmation hearing of Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court. Then, we look at why people hate both Donald Trump’s proposed budget and the American Health Care Act, or Trumpcare, so much. Everyone loves to “Make America Great Again” until you take away their free subsidies.
Finally, find out who will have to check their laptops and tablets on U.S.-bound flights. Is this for security or petty economic reasons?
