In This Episode

Little Ronny Pudding Fingers finally responds to Trump’s attacks and quietly signs a 6 week abortion ban in Florida. Kevin McCarthy has a new debt ceiling plan that’s probably dead on arrival. The Democrats’ Dianne Feinstein problem is not going away and neither are Clarence Thomas’ ethics scandals. Then Crooked’s own Max Fisher stops by to talk about the epic defamation case that’s set to begin this week between Dominion Voting Systems and Fox News.
