Donald Trump has a plan to consolidate even more power if he wins in 2024. So, where’s the political will to constrain such a power grab while there’s time?
Join our host, Ron Steslow, as he and guests Frank Sadler (Chief of Staff to Carly Fiorina) and Andy Kroll (Investigative Reporter at ProPublica) delve deep into these pivotal discussions.
Segments to look forward to:
(2:11) We dive into Donald Trump’s announcement that he’s the target of the grand jury investigation into 2020 election subversion, and other Republican candidates’ reluctance to confront him.
(12:23) We then examine Trump’s re-election agenda to reshape the executive branch for more control over independent agencies, explore the ‘unitary executive theory,’ and consider the implications of Congress’ failure to check growing executive power. (We’ll also delve into Julian Assange’s indictment for leaking classified materials.)
(42:12) We inspect the Health and Human Services’ move to halt funding for the Wuhan Institute of Virology, probe the handling of the COVID-19 origin investigation, and discuss how failures in dominant media breed uncertainty.
[Politicology+] Molly McKew joins the panel for this week’s Politicology+ episode to unpack Russia’s decision to halt Ukraine’s Black Sea grain exports and its ramifications on the conflict and the rest of the world—especially Africa. She also addresses the US running out of the ammunition it pledged to Ukraine.
