2369 - 2020 DOJ Corruption & Progressive Victories? w/ Elie Mystal & Aaron Kleinman

Sam hosts Elie Mystal (@ElieNYC) of The Nation to discuss the SCOTUS term and Bill Barr's politicization of the Justice Department. Sam then hosts Aaron Kleinman (@BobbyBigWheel), Director of Research at the Future Now Fund and co-creator of Give Smart, to discuss last night primaries in New York, Kentucky, and Virginia. On today's show: Jamaal Bowman's inspiring victory speech about poverty, oppression, and racism: "it's killing all of us." Elie Mystal (@ElieNYC) of The Nation joins Sam to discuss the SCOTUS term and Bill Barr's politicization of the Justice Department. The strengths and weaknesses of the recent SCOTUS decision on discrimination against LGBT workers, and the positive precedent it could set. Why the Trump WH isn't getting their way on DACA. The reasons why Bill Barr should be removed from office. Theories on the Barr-led firing of Geoffrey Berman, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. Aaron Kleinman (@BobbyBigWheel), Director of Research at the Future Now Fund and co-creator of Give Smart, joins Sam to discuss last night primaries in New York, Kentucky, and Virginia. Why are the results taking so long? Probable wins for Mondaire Jones, Jamaal Bowman and other progressives in New York. Big win for AOC. Potential progressive advances in VA, KY. How the largely anti-incumbent mood benefits progressives. On the fun half: Trump calls Covid "kung flu," says he's unsure why it's called Covid-19. At rally, Trump says November elections will be most corrrupt ever. Trump says Americans voted in person during WWI & WWII, should vote in person in November. Son of Congressman Dan Bishop says of young conservatives, "we ain't chokers." At Trump rally, woman laments cancelled Aunt Jemima: "she was the picture of the American dream." Tim Pool predicts AOC is in trouble, will lose her seat to a moderate...then later claims he repeatedly said she would win. MPD union boss says BLM is committing acts of terrorism, makes demands for more training and funding. Dave Rubin praises Ted Cruz. Fox & Friends are shocked St. Paul MN wants to remove armed guards from schools. Asked about how she's come to terms w/ critique of Biden at debates, Kamala Harris says "it was a debate!" Plus, your calls and IMs. Check out Sam's interviews with Jamaal Bowman here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUhXiVNJcOs) and here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xRBUei1kpQ) Check out Sam's interview with Charles Booker here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAroKXjOdlg) Check out Sam's interview with Mondaire Jones here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2aMfAa8DDA&feature=emb_logo) Become a member at JoinTheMajorityReport.com Check out the Brand New Majority Report Merch Shop https://shop.majorityreportradio.com/ (Merch issues and concerns can be addressed here: majorityreportstore@mirrorimage.com) The AM Quickie is now on YouTube Subscribe to the AM Quickie at https://fans.fm/amquickie Make the AMQ part of your Alexa Flash Briefing too!
