Perils and Benefits of Electoral College Coup

The Perils and Benefits of an Electoral College Coup
A push to deny Donald Trump Electoral College votes could lead to the undoing of the institution itself.

Democrats are organizing Electoral College members to go against their state results and vote their conscience next month to deny Donald Trump the presidency. We discuss the consequences of such a maneuver.

Plus, we talk with one national security researcher who is trying to get ahead of the incoming Trump administration. FOIA guru Ryan Shapiro joins us to talk about Project 45, and the threats to transparency posed by the president-elect.

And, elections have consequences. And some of those could fall on the most vulnerable people in the world — children seeking asylum here, from violence in Central America. We’ll tell you about a Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing that took aim at our humanitarian mission on the Southern border.

Plus, no one believes Trump will actually drain the swamp. But Congress could give the Executive Branch the tools it needs to shed light on malfeasance. We discuss that in a Classified Session.

We'd love to get your feedback at
