Trump Fires Comey – What Now? (E24)
On news that Trump has fired FBI Director James Comey, we record an emergency episode about what a new FBI Director will mean, given the broad powers the FBI has inherited. We discuss how we can push back against FBI abuses by encouraging our local elected officials to follow the lead of San Francisco, who left the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force following concern over the Trump administration’s Muslim Ban and concerns that participation in the task force might violate local laws protecting immigrants and religious minorities.
