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

From Capitol Hill to the States, immigration has become a defining issue in American life and politics, especially under the Trump administration. Staff writer at Daily Kos Gabe Ortiz joins me on the show today to talk about the latest immigration news on the ongoing family separation of migrants, Trump’s cap on refugees and more.

Last week, New Yorkers turned out in droves to vote in state and local primaries. While the progressive slate didn’t win the statewide races, the blue wave rocked the state legislature, bringing in a new slate of Democrats. Co-founder of Data for Progress Sean McElwee writes about how New York shows us how the Democratic Party is changing. He joins me on the show today to talk all about it.

Before President Trump was even sworn into office, concerns about the way he would govern grew. Constitutional law scholar and political science professor at Brown University Corey Brettschneider guides us through the Constitution and explains the powers―and limits―that it places on the presidency. He discusses the presidential powers and duties, how the states and the public relate and cases from early American history. He joins me on the show to talk about his new book, The Oath and the Office: A Guide to the Constitution for Future Presidents.

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

Today, Paul Manafort pleads guilty to charges of conspiracy against the United States and obstruction. He forfeits tens of millions of dollars of assets and is cooperating with prosecutors—huge new developments in the Mueller investigation. Independent journalist writing about national security and civil liberties Marcy Wheeler returns to the show to help make sense of the plea deal and its impact on the investigation and Trump.

Staten Island has a reputation as a red borough in a blue city, but new Democratic Party energy is looking to change that. The 31-year old former health care professional and veteran Max Rose dominated the Democratic Party primary for congressional district NY-11, and now the nation is watching as he goes up against Trump-endorsed Republican Dan Donavan. He joins me on the show today to talk all about his exciting campaign.

This sure has been another crazy week in politics what with Trump denying the gravity of the hurricanes in Puerto Rico, Paul Manafort’s plea deal, and Obama hitting the campaign trail for Democrats.  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.
