Today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

Noah Michelson, the Editorial Director of the new HuffPost Personal and Co-host of the Love + Sex Podcast returns to the show as he does every Thursday to help us close out the week with the stories making headlines over at Queer Voices.

The FBI and Special Counsel Robert Mueller keep digging into Trump’s Russia ties. Now, the FBI is investigating whether a top Russian banker with ties to the Kremlin illegally funneled money to the National Rifle Association to help Donald Trump win the presidency. McClatchyDC investigative reporters Peter Stone and Greg Gordon broke the story. They join me on the show today to talk about this new information and where the Russia investigation is headed.

Today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

Last week, Trump called Haiti, El Salvador and the nations of Africa “shithole countries,” and his comment blanketed the media. The blatantly racist remark implicating entire nations of people came from a president that has desensitized us to such inflammatory words, and, even worse, his policies and abuses of power. Columnist at The American Prospect, Adele Stan, wrote about this moment of changing cultural norms what it means for America. She joins me on the show today to talk all about it.

In 2016, Wisconsin helped deliver Trump his victory. Now, a Democrat winning a traditionally Republican state senate seat in last night’s special election could help deliver a blue wave into the Badger State and other red territories. The outcome has alarmed Republicans and energized Democrats. Political Editor and top authority on state legislative races for Daily Kos, Carolyn Fiddler, joins me on the show today to explore the significance of this win for Wisconsin and beyond.

On Friday, the Trump administration took another strike against healthcare by approving a controversial Medicaid overhaul in Kentucky. The new requirements and paperwork could cause an estimated 95,000 people to lose coverage, including the very people who need it the most. Senior national correspondent at HuffPost, Jonathan Cohn, wrote all about the proposal. He joins me on the show today to discuss its potential impact on Kentuckians as well as Medicaid policy across the nation.

Since we last spoke with Mark Joseph Stern of Slate last week a lot has happened, from the call for Steve Bannon to testify, to a possible government shutdown to the rejection of North Carolina’s partisan redistricting plan. Mark returns to the show today to talk all about these issues and so much more.

Today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

The Mueller investigation continues to reveal troubling ties between Trump and Russia, but the threat goes back much further. Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD) released a new report detailing Putin’s history of attacking democracy and undermining the rule of law, both within Russia and across Europe. He joins me today to talk about his findings and recommendations vital to protect our upcoming elections. 

After a very public falling out with Trump, Steve Bannon was let go from Breitbart News, where he used to be an icon for the alt-right. Former spokesperson for Republican officials and Breitbart News Kurt Bardella worked closely with Bannon for two years. He wrote about his experience with Bannon behind the scenes in a new oped for the New York Times. He joins me today to share his reflections on Bannon’s character and fall.

This sure has been another crazy week in politics what with Trump’s slur against immigrant countries, more retirements and open seats in congress, and DACA hanging in the balance.  Joining me today to help us wrap up the week in politics is Eleanor Clift the Washington correspondent for TheDaily Beast, where she covers the White House and writes about politics and culture.  Eleanor, welcome back to the show!

Today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

Noah Michelson, the Voices Editorial Director at The Huffington Post and Executive Editor of Queer Voices, and Co-host of the Love + Sex Podcast returns to the show as he does every Thursday to help us close out the week with the stories making headlines over at Queer Voices.

The often-overlooked 1928 Peace Pact put forth a radical shift in the thinking on global war and law. The book The Internationalists: How a Radical Plan to Outlaw War Remade the World presents a bold and provocative history of the men who fought to outlaw war and how the treaty was a transformative event. International Law Professor at Yale Law School Oona Hathaway joins me today to talk about the book she and Scott Shapiro wrote, as well as diplomacy in the era of Trump. 


On October 31, 2016, the paper of record published the story “Investigating Donald Trump, F.B.I. Sees No Clear Link to Russia” just a week before the presidential election. Since then, Trump became president and meanwhile, evidence and suspicion of ties between his team and Russia keeps growing, with the Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson’s newly public accounts. Opinion writer for the Washington Post Erik Wemple helps us make sense of it all, from the initial claims to the just-released transcript of testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. He joins me on the show today.

Today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

Yesterday, a federal court struck down a congressional district map in North Carolina because it was drawn to favor the Republicans. In a powerful opinion by the three judges presiding over the case, Judge James A. Wynn Jr. described the plan as “motivated by invidious partisan intent.” Political Director of Daily Kos David Nir joins me on the show today to discuss the ramifications for North Carolina and the nation.


So much happening in the world of politics this week, what with Trump’s statements on immigration, opening arguments in the Ohio voter roll case, and the North Carolina redistricting ruling.  Helping us to make some sense of it all is Michele Jawando, Vice President of legal progress at the Center forAmerican Progress, and don’t forget to check out THINKING CAP, the podcast she does every Thursday with our friend Igor Volsky!
