The truth about the failed Robert Mueller probe
This is the Ray Hanania on Politics podcast … I’ve covered politics for nearly a half-century, including covering City Hall from 1978 until 1992 working there everyday morning until night and covering the administrations of 7 Chicago mayors from Daley to Daley … that includes the two-week stint by David Orr as interim mayor between Mayor Washington’s death and the City Council appointment of Eugene Sawyer as acting mayor …
I write three weekly syndicated columns on mainstream and Middle East politics every week for the Southwest News newspaper group of eight newspapers and on Middle East issues for two major Middle East news sites, including Middle East monitor in London and the Arab News newspaper in Saudi Arabia.
