Star US investigative journo Jason Leopold gives 95bFM the dirt on the most amazing, powerful and pretty good country in the Universe. This guy has a Wikipedia page WITH references, so you know you’re in good hands.
We don’t have Jason this week because he’s currently in Guantanamo Bay, but we do have a guest with us for State of the States today - Ximena speaks to Stephen Hoadley from the University of Auckland about the United State's interesting (and increasingly concerning) relationship with Russia, now that Trump is soon-to-be at the helm.
This week, Ximena speaks to Jason about how the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline has come to a standstill (for now), and also about some of the concerning cabinet appointments president elect Donald Trump has made so far.
This week, Ximena speaks to Jason about the fallout from last week’s election result. They discuss what a Trump administration might look like; how much Trump can actually do as president; and also whether Clinton's blame on FBI Director James Comey for her election failures is warranted or not.
