Journalist Marcy Wheeler (Emptywheel.net) joins Dennis for the interview. Asserting that Jeff Sessions is not going to be prosecuted for perjury and that in fact there are at least three other Trump officials who lied in their confirmation hearings, Wheeler makes the case for an independent investigation into the Trump-Russia connection.

Also, on the podcast: Jeff Sessions lies about his meeting with Russians, and Trump’s rage takes him to twitter. Trolling President Obama, Trump claims, with no evidence, that the former President “had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”

Meanwhile. Trump is scheduled to issue a new Executive order today, a newer version of his travel ban. Will it stick? And in breaking news — The Supreme Court just announced it will not hear a watershed legal case in the fight for Transgender rights.
