US Podcast: “Trump Corners Himself” Over Wiretapping, “Muslim Ban”, & HealthCare

US Podcast: “Trump Corners Himself” Over Wiretapping, “Muslim Ban”, & HealthCare

Amid the furor over the Trump Administration’s allegations that Britain’s electronic intelligence service GCHQ wiretapped Trump Tower, I spoke with Share Radio about the politics and whether it will affect US-UK relations.

Soon after the interview, the White House backed off any “apology” to London, but the line of the interview remains: “The fundamental relationship is between the agencies and not with Trump and his inner circle, who are making these wild, damaging allegations.”

The interview also considers the status of the investigation into Trump-Russia links, the next steps after a federal judge blocked implementation of Trump’s “Muslim Ban 2.0”, and trouble for the GOP attempt to replace and repeal ObamaCare.
