    On this episode of Fault Lines, hosts Garland Nixon and Lee Stranahan try to keep up with the myriad of stories concerning sexual misconduct by powerful individuals as more details about Matt Lauer are revealed. They also discuss the Alabama Senate Race and talk about Bitcoin with blogger and former Wall Street trader Michael Krieger.

    Scheduled Guests:

    Joel Segal — National Director, Justice Action Mobilization Network (Jammin) Former Congressional Staffer | Topic: Puerto Rican / Virgin Islands Relief Efforts

    Susan Pai | Topic: North Korea

    Randy Credico — Political satirist, host of "Randy Credico Live on the Fly" on WBAI | Topic: His Subpoena from the House Intelligence Committee

    Bill Binney — Former NSA Whistleblower | Topic: Meeting Pompeo and Coverage from the Mainstream Media

    Paul Gattis — Longtime Reporter in Alabama | Topic: Alabama Senate Race and Leigh Corfman Letter

    Michael Krieger — Founder of LibertyBlitzkrieg.com | Topic: Rise of Bitcoin & Shakeup in Trump's Cabinet

    As we roll into the final month of 2017, the media and powerful institutions have been overwhelmed by allegations of sexual misconduct. Matt Lauer is out at NBC, Joe Barton will not seek re-election in Texas, and Nancy Pelosi has called for John Conyers to resign. Is this tidal wave still in its early days?

    Garland and Lee also take a look at the case of political satirist Randy Credico being hit with a subpoena from the House Intelligence Committee over his relationship with Julian Assange. Will the anti-Russian hysteria in the media and Congress slow at all during the second year of the Trump presidency?

    Fault Lines closes out the week by having a discussion about Bitcoin with friend of the show, Michael Krieger. As the cryptocurrency has soared this calendar year, how does Bitcoin fit into the economy and society moving forward?
