    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Walter Smolarek fills in for Brian Becker and is joined by journalist and filmmaker Dan Cohen.

    Is the era of Netanyahu approaching an end? Dramatic developments in the investigation into the Israeli Prime Minister for bribery, fraud and a breach of trust could signal the beginning of the end for his far-right government.

    Venezuela's Foreign Minister has hit back at new US sanctions targeting eight Venezuelan leaders, calling them "illegal and absurd". The newly-elected Constituent Assembly is continuing to make rapid progress towards the restoration of peace in the country and the deepening of the Bolivarian Revolution. Carlos Ron, the Charges d'Affairs at the embassy of Venezuela, joins the show.

    The fallout continues after reports surfaced that the FBI conducted a pre-dawn raid on the home of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort last month, using a search warrant to seize documents deemed to be important to the so-called Russiagate investigation. Nationally syndicated radio and television personality Lionel joins Walter to discuss the ongoing investigation.
