FEATURING DANIEL ELLSBERG – With just weeks before the November 3rd election, poll numbers show former Vice President Joe Biden with a strong lead over incumbent Donald Trump. But four years ago there were similar polls showing a lead for the Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and the rest is history.
My next guest calls Trump, “a domestic enemy of the Constitution.” In an op-ed for the Metro Times in Michigan Daniel Ellsberg sounds the alarm on what he calls, “an authoritarian threat to our democratic system of a kind we’ve never seen before.”
