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

California has one of the most hotly contested congressional races this fall, and the campaign between incumbent Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher and his Democratic challenger, Harley Rouda, is now in a dead heat. I’m thrilled to have this exciting candidate on the show to talk all about the race and how he wants to change things in Congress.

As we’ve been learning more about Maria Butina, the Russian agent arrested for establishing a backchannel of communication, curious ties have been emerging—including with religious groups. Journalist Katherine Stewart writes regularly about the political activities of evangelicals and other religious groups. She joins me today to talk about the connections between America’s Christian nationalists and the Russian government.

This sure has been another crazy week in politics what with Trump and Putin's summit, . Joining me today to help us wrap up the week in politics is Eleanor Clift the Washington correspondent for The Daily Beast, where she covers the White House and writes about politics and culture.

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

Formerly one of the most liberal states in the union, on election night of 2016, Wisconsin was the state that put Trump over the top. The state that nurtured the environmental and labor movements moved away from its progressive history to become a laboratory for conservative forces. Journalist and Wisconsin-native Dan Kaufman writes about these and other shifts in the state in his new book, The Fall of Wisconsin: The Conservative Conquest of a Progressive Bastion and the Future of American Politics. He joins me in the studio to talk all about it.

Since we last spoke with Mark Joseph Stern of Slate last week a lot has happened, the Trump administration missed the court-imposed family reunification deadline, Mueller indicted 12 Russian military officers and Trump sat down with Putin. 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


Hidden in the news this week, Trump pardoned Dwight and Steven Hammond—two Oregon ranchers convicted of deliberately setting fire to swaths of federal lands. Their convictions were the spark that led to the violent Bundy standoff back, and this pardon sends far-reaching political messages to those involved. Reporter for ThinkProgress Alan Pyke argues that the president is fanning a culture-war fire to help cover up his campaign to hand wilderness to mining companies. He joins me on the show today to talk all about it.

This sure has been another crazy week in politics what with Trump announcing his Supreme Court nominee, the NATO summit, the explosive congressional hearing of FBI agent Peter Strzok, 12 new indictments from the Mueller investigation. Joining me today to help us wrap up the week in politics is Eleanor Clift the Washington correspondent for The Daily Beast, where she covers the White House and writes about politics and culture.

Noah Michelson, the Editorial Director at 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 HuffPost.


When the people of Flint, Michigan, turned on their faucets in April 2014, the orange water pouring out was poisoned with lead and other toxins. Through a series of disastrous decisions, the state government had switched the city’s water supply, and the mostly poor and African American residents suffered tremendously for it. Detroit-based journalist Anna Clark wrote about the causes, victims and revelations of the catastrophe in her new book The Poisoned City: Flint’s Water and the American Urban Tragedy. She joins me on the show to talk all about it.

Today, FBI official Peter Strzok testified before a joint hearing of the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees. The hearing focused on his actions during investigations of both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump from the 2016 presidential election, and quickly became explosive as Democrats and Republicans feuded over conspiracy theories, accusations against the integrity of the FBI and more. Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) was there and he joins me on the show today to talk all about it.
