    Thank God for Mollie Hemingway’s ability to read and listen carefully as well as her ability to discern fact from fiction. Anytime she is speaking, I always want to hear what she has to say. Thanks for having her on.

    If this were a competition as to which of the two commentator’s analysis was more compelling ….. Jonah would be enjoying a 5 and half hour bus ride to the Triple A affiliate in DesMoines .

    I love that Michael tries to have a whole bunch of different sorts of voices on his show… people who talk about things like this from different angles.  That’s refreshing to me.

    It is astounding to me that it is apparently okay for an Administration to go to the FISA court with oppo research. Really? So the FBI is in the business of investigating political campaigns? So the White House could pay for some research from say, Alex Jones, and use it to get a warrant to investigate Republican opponents?

    It has finally happened.  I’ve finally been (to me knowledge at least) been redacted in something.

    Ha – unintentional to single you out personally. I try to make it a practice to shield people’s names if I extract something from Facebook.

    Mollie Hemingway at 22:20:

    First off, it’s important for people to just take what the memo says without thinking whether it benefits Donald Trump or hurts Hillary Clinton or hurts Obama. There are issues in play that are much more important than current political office holders.

    And with that, Ms. Hemingway just became my favorite podcast pundit. I have been waiting for someone — anyone — to lead with that idea, that there is something independently and fundamentally important here: that it isn’t about Mueller and who is smearing whom and the political jockeying behind this.

    Thank you, Michael, for inviting someone with her perspicacity. And thank you, Mollie, for single-handedly raising the quality of discourse here.
