Episode Info: Michael Brooks hosts Murtaza Hussain of The Intercept to discuss his new piece, "Two Brooklyn Lawyers Accused of Throwing Molotov Cocktails are the Public Face of Trump Administration's Crackdown on Dissent," and how the administration might prosecute protestors. Michael and Murtaza explore federal prosecutors charges against Urooj Rahman and Colinford Mattis for throwing a molotov cocktail through an empty police van window. Murtaza and Michael breakdown the draconian charges against the two young lawyers and how such measures threaten protestors and clamp down dissent. And in the Fun Half: Bill Barr's politicization and authoritarian impulses at the DOJ, the record day of positive Covid cases in the US, the fight for the democratic party, water rights in Brazil, Gorka faces tyranny at a DC restaurant, Tucker Carlson's right-wing populism road to nowhere, and the sad decline of Dave Rubin.
