Hurricane Harvey & Hurricane Trump

   The Fujiwhara Effect

Arlene Bynon & John LeBoutillier discuss the convergence of Hurricane Harvey and the political Hurricane Russia that Donald Trump is generating through his relationship with Vladimir Putin . We look at the ongoing Mueller investigation, the Breaking News from the Washington Post about Trump Towers Moscow and the real message behind the Sherriff Joe Pardon.


Coming Apart At The Seams

Arlene Bynon & John LeBoutillier discuss the State of the Trump Presidency; Post-Charlottesville: his own business councils abandoned Trump; Steve Schwarzman and Carl Icahn - friends of Trump - bailed out on him; Trump then fired Steve Bannon, who is certain to wage war from the far right against the Trump Administration, the GOP Congress and Fox News; Trump's poll ratings declined to unprecedented lows for a first-year president. Indeed, the Administration, the Republican Party and the Right are all coming apart at the seams!


      Is Somebody Else "Locked and Loaded"?

Arlene Bynon & John LeBoutillier examine President Trump's angry outbursts against North Korea, Senate Majority Leader McConnell and the news media - while "thanking" Vladimir Putin for expelling 755 American diplomats from Russia. What is driving his anger? Is it the two Grand Juries investigating his relationship with Russia? Is it the FBI raid on Paul Manafort's home? Is it Robert Mueller who is "locked and loaded"?


      The Noose Tightens

Arlene Bynon & John LeBoutillier examine how Donald Trump's legal and political difficulties have escalated in the past week. From the revelation that Special Counsel Mueller is now using both DC and Virginia Grand Juries to the request for Michael Flynn documents from the White House, Trump's legal difficulties are clearly mounting. So, too, are his political problems as his polling continues to drop and a GOP-led US Senate encircles him with a Sanctions Bill and plans a new law to prevent him from firing Mueller. Indeed, the noose is steadily tightening.


The Next Move - What is Robert Mueller's Next Move
        in the Russia Investigation ?

Arlene Bynon & John LeBoutillier talk to Watergate Prosecutor Nick Akerman about Robert Mueller and his team: what are they thinking about President Trump personally dictating a false statement aboard Air Force One about the June 2016 meeting with the Russian lawyer? Why has the White House lied about this incident? Will the President fire Mueller, which he refused to rule out in a WSJ interview? And why did Mr. Mueller add a 16th lawyer to his team, this time an expert in foreign bribery cases?
