John Knefel // The FBI Is Not Your Friend
Video Dispatch | ep43 | Dec 7, 2017
Although many liberals have praised and otherwise been mostly supportive of FBI investigations into the 2016 election, the law enforcement agency has long been known for spying and blackmail rather than taking on political corruption outright. John Knefel offers a note of caution and some history on the FBI which serves as a reminder about the agency’s darker side.

Molly and John Knefel are hosts of the longrunning progressive politics podcast, Radio Dispatch.

Music featured in the episode: "Untitled" by Tiny Victories
