As The Unredacted Mueller Report Sits Hidden Inside The Bowels Of The Justice Department, Attorney General Barr Finds Himself Facing Withering Criticism. Also: Foreign Policy; Boeing, Impeachment And More

May 7, 2019 — In normal times, our nation would have a president who would be able to take good economic news and use it to his/her advantage. But Donald Trump isn’t a normal person, much less a president who understands the job. This week started off with Trump freaking out over Robert Mueller possibly testifying and sending mixed signals on foreign policy. In today’s podcast, MT Publisher John Guzzon and Karen Weil, editor at large, hashing out yet another seemingly impossible news cycle.

Will Mueller testify? He needs to.
The Mueller Report is out (in its redacted form), and Attorney General William Barr testified in favor of his boss, falsely claiming Trump has been exonerated. Numerous questions remain unanswered, including whether Robert Mueller had the tools to fully investigate the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with Russian operatives to affect the 2016 election.

Why the impeachment process needs to start
As anger grows over Trump’s disregarding basic norms and the rule of law (along with possibly obstructing justice), House Democrats are weighing the risks over an impeachment hearing and want Special Counsel Robert Mueller to testify before Congress later this month. Is there any way to handle an impeachment without risks?

Possible war with Iran — and other foreign policy blunders
Domestic drama aside, the Trump administration has rattled sabers over a possible conflict with Iran, while North Korea mocks the U.S. with a recent missile launch and the situation in Venezuela worsens. History shows us what happens when incompetent actors are in charge of international crises.  

Shooting shatters a city
Known as “the city in the country,” Poway, Calif., is known for low crime rates and a laid-back environment. That changed on April 27, when a 19-year-old man entered a Chadad temple and shot several people, killing 60-year-old Lori Kaye. It was yet another example of anti-Semitism in the U.S, and a sick culture of hate worldwide.

Troubling report on Boeing
On Sunday, the Seattle Times reported that Boeing pushed limiting safety testing in a race to certify planes, including the 737 MAX. Normally, such a revelation might be greeted with shrugs, but a 737 crashed off the Indonesian coast last October, followed by a crash in March in Ethiopia. These tragedies show why regulation, on some level, is necessary.
