This week on America’s most beloved political podcast, we get deep in the weeds on impeachment: can it happen, how would it work, and the politics surrounding it. But first, we travel to Venezuela where our intrepid correspondent Annika Rothstein, who tells a harrowing story that we won’t spoil here (yes, we know the audio on her segment was sub-par — socialists run lousy telecommunications operations. Go figure.). Then, if you want to understand a possible Constitutional crisis, you should ask a Constitutional law professor. Luckily, we have John Yoo on speed dial (kids, ask your parents what speed dial is). He delves into the legal ramifications of impeachment and contempt of Congress before he had to rush off to his next TV hit. Do read his Washington Post op-Ed for more detail. Finally, we wrap up with another edition of our “Handicap The Democratic Field” segment. Who’s up? Who’s down? Who’s going nowhere fast? We break it all down for you (spoiler alert: It’s been a bad few weeks for Beto).
Music from this week’s show: Matilda by Harry Belafonte
