    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker is joined by activist and author James Cockroft.

    Lula da Silva, the founder of the Brazilian workers party and former President of Brazil, has been sentenced to 10 years in prison on corruption charges. But is it another right wing political effort to stop Lula from re-winning the presidency in 2018?

    Christopher Wray testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee today. While he was full of praise for the constitution, he wasn't challenged about his own record in violating the rights of protesters, dissenters and the Muslim community, or his own role in George W. Bush’s torture regime. Chip Gibbons, the Policy & Legislative Counsel for Defending Rights and Dissent, joins Brian to discuss.

    The fallout continues in the aftermath of the revelations that Donald Trump Jr. set up a meeting with a Russian lawyer during the campaign — but is this really the smoking gun that shows collusion by the Trump team with Russia, or was the meeting of little to no importance? Kevin Zeese, co-director of Popular Resistance, joins the show.
