Episode 19: Russia

In Trump's America, a slow news week still includes the firing of a Cabinet Secretary. So this week we cover the ouster of VA Secretary David Shulkin and we dive into the shooting of Stephon Clark and the continued problem of police violence against the African American community. We also talk about the killing of Palestinian protesters at the Gaza-Israel border at the hands, Laura Ingraham's week off, and retaliation by China against Trump's tariffs. For our main topic, we have a conversation about Russia, covering the recent election and international fallout over the poisoning of Sergei Skripal, as well as a broader discussion about Russia's long-term geopolitical strategy.
