    Google fires employee over diversity memo; are investigations are a double edged sword; unintended consequences of sanctions.

    On today's show, Lee and guest host Mike Hersh discuss Google's firing of an engineer wrote a controversial memo on workplace diversity. Did the high-tech giant go too far and censor their employee, or was he out of line for comments he made about women and minority hiring?

    In round two, Lee and Mike ask whether the investigations that Democrats called for months are turning into a double edge sword, as new information has been revealed about former Department of Justice chief Loretta Lynch.

    Finally, another double edged sword may be the sanctions against Russia, North Korea and others, recently passed overwhelmingly by both houses of Congress. Have they had unintended consequences, as new alliances form among nations of the European Union and countries like China begin to push back?

    All that and more on today's episode of Fault Lines with Nixon and Stranahan.
