    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker is joined by Sputnik International political analyst Dmitry Babich to discuss surprising visit of European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker to Russia.

    As Juncker meets with Vladimir Putin in St. Petersburg today, the EU remains deeply divided and evidently tired of sanctions against Russia. Is there a thaw in EU-Russia relations?

    Also, the Libyan government is suing Wall Street megabank Goldman Sachs for $1.2 billion dollars, claiming that it used bribes to secure contracts in 2008. The case is in front of the London High Court, but White House fingerprints are all over the case. To discuss this Becker is joined by editor-in-chief of news website WhoWhatWhy Russ Baker.

    And the State Department is blocking the release of Hillary Clinton’s emails on the Trans-Pacific Partnership until after the election in November. Why is the Obama Administration so scared and what’s in these emails that’s so secretive? Becker is joined by executive director of the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF) Mara Verheyden-Hilliard and co-creator of the investigative website District Sentinel Sam Sacks.
