Russian Asset & The 1st Female Firefighter (with Brenda Berkman)

This week's Q&A (with Lisa Monaco) starts at 2:07, the interview starts at 17:35, and the button starts at 1:18:45. On this episode of Stay Tuned, "Russian Asset & The 1st Female Firefighter," Lisa Monaco, who served as Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism in the Obama Administration, joins host Preet Bharara to help answer some of your questions on: -- Reports of an extracted Russian Spy who allegedly provided critical information about the Kremlin’s interference in the 2016 American election -- The sudden departure of John Bolton as President Trump’s national security adviser -- President Trump’s cancelled negotiations with the Taliban at Camp David    On this 18th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, retired Captain Brenda Berkman of the New York City Fire Department (FDNY) joins Preet for a conversation about her journey as the City’s pioneering female firefighter and her historic 1982 class action lawsuit that forced the FDNY to accept women into its ranks.  * Corrections from Capt. Berkman: the U.S. Forest Service (along with FEMA and the US Fire Academy) came to Ground Zero to help FDNY with the large incident command challenges (not the “US Fire Service”); and 37 Port Authority Police died on 9/11, as well as many additional non-police Port Authority employees.  Bonus clips from the interview are available for members of the CAFE Insider community.
