Pardon Me: Episode 6 -- One Nation, Under Insomnia

pardonmewide.png

This hour, we air an updated version of the most recent episode of our weekly impeachment show, Pardon Me, which normally airs Saturdays at noon.

Law professor Bruce Ackerman argues that President Trump's order to kill Iranian Major General Qassem Soleimani is a far graver offense than his efforts to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Joe Biden. Think about it: He's bragging about his decision to kill a high-ranking official of another country. Will Chief Justice John Roberts save us?

And that's the positive view on the show this week.

Sarah Kendzior studies autocratic governments. She thinks we'd be foolish to believe there are limits to what the Trump administration would do -- whether jailing witnesses and whistleblowers, threatening protesters, or using nuclear weapons.

GUESTS:

  • Bruce Ackerman- The Sterling Professor of Law and Political Science at Yale and the author of nineteen books, including We the People, his three-volume work on American constitutional development
  • Frankie Graziano - Reporter at Connecticut Public Radio
  • Sarah Kendzior - A writer, researcher, and co-host of the podcast Gaslit Nation
  • Chion Wolf - Producer, photographer, and announcer at Connecticut Public Radio
