Backbone Radio with Matt Dunn - September 23, 2018 - HR 2
The Wild Week of Declassification. The Rats Are Panicking. Allies are pleading. Trump surprises everyone by offloading to Inspector General Horowitz. Less viscerally satisfying, less immediacy for sure, but hopefully a matter of enhanced presidential "leverage." Andrew McCabe jumps the gun, attacks Rod Rosenstein in the New York Times, causes great damage to Mueller. Didn't anticipate Trump's maneuver? Unforced error? Meanwhile, the Washington Post dives in to defend Rosenstein against charges of "sabotage." We sample related commentary from Lee Smith, of Real Clear Investigations, and puzzle through the prospects for Horowitz. Likely to produce speedy results? What assurances do we have? In the end, fingers are crossed for the deal Trump has made. Also, we review the Kavanaugh "set-up" and the Democratic pattern of "making stuff up" to attack their opponents. We offer a salutary Harry Reid flashback on Romney's allegedly unpaid taxes. With Listener Calls & Music via Muse, MC Hammer, George Harrison, Van Morrison, the Beastie Boys and Colter Wall.
