John Knefel -- one half of the sibling host team of the longrunning progressive politics podcast, Radio Dispatch -- offers some background on Robert Mueller, the former FBI Director who was just appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as Special Counsel to investigate potential collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign during the 2016 election cycle. Along the way, he describes an episode that involved both Mueller and his recently fired successor at the FBI, James Comey, in which the two gained reputations for integrity among many in Washington, DC, and the media. Music featured in the episode: "Untitled" by Tiny Victories
It’s JAMJAM Fridays and Jesse Myerson is here to talk about freed political prisoners, a legitimately rad DA in Philly, and Hillary’s new project Onward Together. Also, John rounds up this truly incredible week.
