Preet Bharara: The Latest on the Russia Investigation

11/13/2017
More

More
If you’re going to read one book on politics this summer vacation, the word is out: Devil’s Bargain – Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and the Storming of the Presidency is the one. The book is by Josh Green, Senior National Correspondent for Bloomberg Businessweek, and if you believe what Politico reports, the book has President Trump livid. To be clear, as you’ll hear, Josh is just fine with that. You’ll love this conversation. Josh is a great storyteller and a funny guy – Back stories on...
