    Buried Treasure: The Coup Plot that anticipated 1/6 (with Jonathan M. Katz)

    50:46

    Skullduggery's Buried Treasure returns as author Jonathan M. Katz joins to talk about his new book Gangsters of Capitalism: Smedley Butler, the Marines, and the Making and Breaking of America's Empire. Tracing a path from the first wave of U.S. overseas expansionism to the rise of fascism in the 1930s to the crises of democracy in our own time, Katz's book tells an urgent story about a formative era most Americans have never learned about, including a Jan. 6th 2021 plot-like attempt to overthrow the US Government in the 1930s exposed by Smedley himself to Congress.GUEST:Jonathan M.

    The Jan. 6th Endgame (w/ Robert Costa)

    46:29

    In AG Merrick Garland's speech on the eve of Jan. 6th he "vowed to pursue the perpetrators of the violent attack “at any level,” and promised to “follow the facts wherever they lead.” The investigation into the event that took place just a year ago on the US Capitol is not limited to the more than seven hundred rioters who have already been charged with breaching the Capitol barricades, assaulting Capitol Police Officers, and threatening the lives of members of congress as well as the sitting Vice-President of the United States. And whether or not they were present that day. So, who does he mean? And does that mean potential charges against Donald Trump himself? Robert Costa of the Washington Post joins to talk about all the latest surrounding the one-year anniversary of the Jan. 6th attack.

    The Steal That Never Happened (w/ Mark Bowden & Matthew Teague)

    42:40

    We are just days away from the one year anniversary of Jan. 6th, that now infamous dark day in the history of the US where our own people attack the US Capitol in order to stop the certification of Joe Biden as the next President. Leading up to that day, a vast amount of wild and ridiculous conspiracies about how the election was stolen and rigged, were spreading quickly without an ounce of evidence to support them. "Stop the Steal" had become the new catchphrase of Trump's supporters, serving as a spring board and call to action by those who had been convinced it was true. How far did it go? Where did those supporters take action? We all witnessed Jan. 6th on our televisions, but what most of us didn't see was what happened on the local level, state by state, county by county. Authors of the book, The Steal: The Attempt to Overturn the 2020 Election and the People Who Stopped It -- Mark Bowden and Matthew Teague, join us to discuss the lead up to Jan. 6th as well as some of the wildest claims and conspiracies that millions of people still believe to this day.

    Taking on the Proud Boys (w/ AG Racine)

    37:14

    The Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers are now central to the investigations into the events of Jan. 6th. More than thirty Proud Boys have been indicted by the Justice Department for the attack on the US Capitol. And just this week, a Federal Judge overseeing many of those cases, upheld the department's position that the defendants can be charged with obstruction of an official proceeding. Meaning, they can be sentenced to lengthy prison terms of up to twenty years. As this situation intensifies, DC's AG Karl Racine is taking another route. He's filed a civil suit against the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers over the events, calling the attack, "a coordinated attack of domestic terrorism." AG Racine joins us to discuss.

    The Build Back Better Debacle (w/ Max Rose)

    53:39

    Joe Manchin has been pushing back on the furious attacks from the White House and his fellow Democrats over his refusal to support President Biden's Build Back Better bill. Manchin's quote that he, "just can't get there to back the bill," was a crushing blow to the Biden administration and appeared to stun top officials and Democratic leaders. A bill that would in their view sharply reduce child poverty, help working parents by dramatically expanding child care, and take major steps to address climate change. And perhaps just as significant that the failure to pass the bill undermines Democratic arguments that they and Biden can actually get things done. Thereby seriously hurting the party's chances of retaining control of congress in next fall's midterm elections. Former NY Democratic Rep. from Staten Island - Max Rose - joins us to discuss the aforementioned in addition to why he himself is running again to win back the seat he lost just a year ago to Trump supporter Nicole Malliotakis.

    Durbin's Doubts (w/ Senator Dick Durbin)

    40:14

    Biden said this week that domestically, there is nothing more important than voting rights. And yet as with Build Back Better, his nearly two trillion social spending bill, there seems little prospect that a voting rights bill can pass before the end of the year. Not so long as two democrats Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin remain admittedly opposed to changing the Senate's filibuster rules that allow a minority that allow a minority of members to block passage of just about anything. Nobody has been in the middle of the fight for voting rights and much else on the democratic slate then Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois. He joins us to discuss the aforementioned bills and the prospects of anything getting down not only before Christmas, but next year as well.GUEST:Senator Dick Durbin (@SenatorDurbin), Serving the people of Illinois.

    Operation Whistle Pig (w/ Jana Winter & Hugh Handeyside)

    1:03:44

    This week, our Yahoo News colleague Jana Winter discovered the existence of a secret investigations unit inside the Department of Homeland Security. It was snooping into the private lives of journalists as well as congressional staff members and others. They were pulling phone records, travel records, personal contacts, and much else. All of this under the guise of cultivating them to help with the legitimate government investigation into, of all things, cobalt mining in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This secret unit launched an initiative called Operation Whistle Pig that targeted journalists. Informally, it called itself W.O.L.F. - way out there in left field. Winter joins us to discuss as well as an ACLU lawyer, Hugh Handeyside, about why this is so alarming.GUESTS:Jana Winter (@janawinter), Investigative Correspondent @YahooNewsHugh Handeyside (@hhandeyside), Senior Staff Attorney, @ACLU National Security ProjectHOSTS:Michael Isikoff (@Isikoff), Chief Investigative Correspondent, Yahoo NewsDaniel Klaidman (@dklaidman), Editor in Chief, Yahoo NewsVictoria Bassetti (@VBass), fellow, Brennan Center for Justice (contributing co-host) RESOURCES:Jana Winter's Operation Whistle Pig story - Here.Rep.

    A Tale of Torture (w/ Mohamedou Ould Slahi)

    1:26:28

    The Mauritanian is a powerful film about a young man named Mohamedou Slahi who was held for fourteen years in GTMO. He was accused of being an Al-Qaeda operative who recruited the hi-jackers for the 9/11 attacks. He was once viewed as one of the most significant high-value detainees and under direct order of then Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld he was subjected to special interrogation methods. He was beaten, kicked, and smashed across his face. Subjected to extreme cold and sexual humiliation by female interrogators. And also threatened with execution during a boat ride where he was force-fed sea water. Slahi himself joins us on this episode of Skullduggery to talk about his experience and his eventual release after wrongful prosecution. GUEST:Mohamedou Slahi, fmr. detainee at Guantanamo Bay & best-selling authorHOSTS:Michael Isikoff (@Isikoff), Chief Investigative Correspondent, Yahoo NewsDaniel Klaidman (@dklaidman), Editor in Chief, Yahoo NewsVictoria Bassetti (@VBass), fellow, Brennan Center for Justice (contributing co-host) RESOURCES:Slahi's best-selling book turned movie - HereIsikoff's story on Mohamedou Slahi - HereFollow us on Twitter: @SkullduggeryPodListen and subscribe to "Skullduggery" on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts.Email us with feedback, questions or tips: [email protected] See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

    Bob Dole: End of an Era (w/ Scott Reed)

    49:38

    The death of Bob Dole this week at the age of 98 has reminded the country just how much Washington and the Republican Party has changed since the days he ruled the roost as Senate Majority Leader. Although a stalwart partisan who was once known as Richard Nixon's "hatchet man," Dole also believed firmly that politics and government had a purpose - to get things done, to pass legislation that actually made a difference in voters. Even if it meant reaching out to the other side, listening and respecting what they had to say and forging compromises. An approach that seems almost entirely foreign in politics these days. We're joined by veteran GOP strategist Scott Reed who managed Dole's 1996 campaign for President.GUEST:Scott Reed, top Republican political strategist and former executive director of the Republican National CommitteeHOSTS:Michael Isikoff (@Isikoff), Chief Investigative Correspondent, Yahoo NewsDaniel Klaidman (@dklaidman), Editor in Chief, Yahoo NewsVictoria Bassetti (@VBass), fellow, Brennan Center for Justice (contributing co-host) RESOURCES:Scott Reed's recent piece on Dole in The Dispatch - HereYahoo News' piece on the passing of Bob Dole - HereFollow us on Twitter: @SkullduggeryPodListen and subscribe to "Skullduggery" on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts.Email us with feedback, questions or tips: [email protected] See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
