    Is she even anywhere near the center? She lost me twice when she said Biden and Hunter would be “extraneous” witnesses, yet the House brought in worse during their hearings. She seemed to imply that only the White House has to be watched for “shenanigans” and it has no right to withhold funds authorized by Congress (for anything). Yet presidents have continually done this. I don’t think the Bidens themselves would add much but they are context for arguments, since Biden claims to have held up funds as VP in order to get a prosecutor fired. Anyway, I dropped out about 1/2-way through, sorry.

    She lost me

    Yes, me, too. I listened to the entire thing while I cooked dinner, and I wondered who this person was! I’ve listened to her podcasts in the past, and this sounds like serious TDS to me.

    The premise for Congress is that Trump tried to get Biden investigated and that is wrong because Biden is a potential election opponent. And that Trump held up foreign aid to Ukraine as an incentive to get the Biden investigation going—right? Except that Ukraine got their foreign aid, and they didn’t investigate Biden.

    Also, how many senators, who will be “investigating” and “trying” Trump are also potential election opponents? Should we impeach them, too?

    Dear Ricochet management,

    This podcast is not up to Ricochet quality standards. I recommend removing it from the lineup.

    I want to thank the foregoing posters. I was going to listen to this podcast, but you have confirmed what I suspected. Ms Cordi struck me from the very first podcast that was posted on Ricochet as being way left of center. I only made it through a few minutes of the first two podcasts, and have since bypassed it. I don’t think it is representative of the kind of political commentary I associate with Ricochet. However, some may want to listen to it, so I am hesitant to call for it to be dropped. I assume that if it gets little play among members it will eventually be dropped for that reason only. It isn’t as though there is any lack of commentary from the left available to those who want to hear it.

    I continue to listen – OCD means I somehow choke down the entire Superfeed – but I am consistently disappointed.
