Impeachment train rolls along. Yep, the train is rollin’ down the impeachment tracks, the Democrats conducting an effective campaign against President Donald Trump, while Trump appears to flounder in response more than anytime in his presidency. It’s a whole new political world this week. Will Trump be tossed from office, don the orange jumpsuit, take up residency in the old pokey? Joining me at my table on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show is my partner in politics, former White House Correspondent Matthew Cooper for our weekly commentary on the state of American politics and in our second half-hour, how’s this: A look inside the business of punishment with the author of AMERICAN PRISON, Shane Bauer. Perhaps Donald Trump ought to tune into this show!
Impeachment train rolls along, and a fast moving train it is. As the train winds around the track, there are many stops along the way and quite a cast of characters: Rudy Giuliani, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Attorney General Barr and the big man himself, Donald Trump, already off the rails only a couple of weeks in. My partner in politics, former White House correspondent and I slice and dice it all for you. Find your seat.
In our second half hour, I talk with the author of AMERICAN PRISON, A REPORTER’S UNDERCOVER JOURNEY INTO THE BUSINESS OF PUNISHMENT. In 2009, journalist Shane Bauer and two other young Americans went hiking in Iraqi Kurdistan and unknowingly crossed into Iran. They were captured, and Bauer was held for over two grueling years in Iran’s Evin prison. In 2014, Shane Bauer went undercover as an entry-level guard at a private prison in Winnfield, Louisiana. His story is simply jaw-dropping. Don’t miss this interview!
As the impeachment train rolls along, travels down the track, we are in a whole new territory. The players include President Trump, an unidentified whistle-blower, Attorney General Bill Barr, Rudy Giuliani, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Speaker Pelosi, Rep. Adam Schiff and we’re just beginning. Strap yourselves in and enjoy the ride, and our look inside America’s prison system on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show podcast with Matthew Cooper and New York Times bestselling author of one of the 10 best books of 2018, one of Barack Obama’s favorites, AMERICAN PRISON.
