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

From stripping former officials of security clearances to lashing out at the press, Trump’s authoritarian streak was in full effect this week. Editor of Right Wing Watch and columnist for The American Prospect Adele Stan writes about how Trump and the White House are threatening the constitution while also distracting from damaging policies that they are unleashing on the country. 


This sure has been another crazy week in politics what with Trump’s retaliation against ex-CIA director John Brennan, Omarosa Manigault’s White House tapes, and the cancellation of Trump’s military parade.  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.

Less than nine months ago, Trump signed a proclamation attempting to eliminate more than two million acres from Grand Staircase-Escalante and Bears Ears National Monuments in Utah. Newly released draft management plans reveal that the Trump administration will prioritize resource extraction at the expense of land preservation.

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

Over the past two weeks, Primary and Special elections around the nation have brought a wealth of new diversity and energy to the Democrats. As we approach the midterms, Political Director of Daily Kos and Publisher of Daily Kos Elections David Nir joins me to talk about these races, the challenges that lie ahead and more.


As we reflect on recent elections and look to the midterms and beyond, we’re taking stock and even making a few (careful) predictions. Co-founder of The American Prospect, professor, and author of the book Can Democracy Survive Global Capitalism? Robert Kuttner joins me on the show today to talk all about it.
The Mueller investigation continues, and so do Trump’s Twitter outbursts about it. The Paul Manafort trial is coming to a close, and we just learned that former White House staffer and The Apprentice alum Omarosa Manigault was questioned by Mueller’s team. Independent journalist writing about national security and civil liberties Marcy Wheeler of EmptyWheel returns to the show to help make sense of it all.

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

While Trump continues to prioritize relations with Putin, more and more evidence of Russian attacks on US elections and infrastructure piles up. Salon contributor Bob Cesca writes about the potential of an election apocalypse, and how it might be much more subtle than we expect. He joins me on the show to talk about these threats.

While former Watergate prosecutors, historians and others weigh in on the parallels between Watergate and the Russia investigation, Salon contributing writer Heather“Digby” Parton argues that the Ken Starr investigation is a more relevant comparison. She joins me on the show today to talk all about the investigation and how the GOP has assumed that all scandal investigations are political weapons. 

Since we last spoke with Mark Joseph Stern of Slate last month a lot has happened, from Paul Manafort’s trial to Rep. Chris Collins’ indictment to Kansas Secretary of State and Gubernatorial candidate Kris Kobach’s messy election results. 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

As the Mueller investigation continues, talk of Trump testifying has returned. First, Giuliani set forth that Trump would testify with several conditions, basically restricting any questions of substance. This weekend, he contradicted his prior statements about what Trump knew and shared his own interpretation of “obstruction.” Senior fellow at the Center of American Progress Action Fund and the Editor of ThinkProgress Justice Ian Millhiser joins me on the show to talk all about the investigation, these statements and their implications.

Since we last spoke with John Nichols of The Nation a lot has happened from to the release of a tape of Rep. David Nunes talking about protecting Trump to special and primary election excitement around the country to Melania Trump’s parents becoming citizens.  John returns to the show today to talk all about these issues and whole lot more, John is The Nation’s national-affairs correspondent, a contributing writer for The Progressive and In These Times and the associate editor of The Capital Times, the daily newspaper in Madison, Wisconsin.

This sure has been another crazy week in politics what with the Blue Wave surging at the Special Elections, Rep. David Nunes’ recorded remarks about protecting Trump emerging, the Paul Manafort trial continuing.  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.  


A strongly Republican district in Western New York is now in the spotlight after Representative Chris Collins, the first sitting congressman to endorse Donald Trump, was indicted on insider trading charges. Now, his Democratic challenger, Nate McMurray, the 43-year-old town supervisor of Grand Island, NY, near Niagara Falls, has the nation's attention. 


Plus, a special in-depth interview with New York City Council Speaker Corey Johnson. Johnson made history when he became Speaker at just 35 years of age.

At nearly twenty tons per person, American carbon dioxide emissions are among the highest in the world. Across the country there are urban neighborhoods, suburbs, rural areas, and commercial institutions that have drastically lower carbon footprints. In her new book The Five-Ton Life: Carbon, America, and the Culture That May Save Us, environmental analyst and author Susan Subak writes about these exceptional places. She joins me on the show today to talk about what sets them apart and what we can learn from them to improve our environment.
