Victor Davis Hanson discusses the damaging disclosure about Obama keeping tabs on the FBI Hillary Clinton email investigation, State Department unmasking, why Hillary’s and Obama’s hubris may be their own downfall and how this can very well be a Watergate or Iran-Contra type scandal. We go into the 2018 election and what the GOP needs to keep Congress, how English speaking immigrants on the farm voted for Trump and the DACA/illegal immigration debate. What did Victor have to say about ‘elites’ including George Will, Bret Stephens, and Bill Kristol? We conclude the hour with his thoughts on how to decentralize America’s and world governing bodies and bring them closer to the people they supposedly represent.
