    In today’s episode, Sam Sacks and Sam Knight digest what just happened with the Brexit vote in the UK. Economist Mark Weisbrot with the Center for Economic and Policy Research joins in to offer some insight on what lies ahead.

    Questions linger over what sort of interactions the FBI had with Orlando mass shooter Omar Mateen. Author and journalist Max Blumenthal is on to discuss the bureau’s counter-terror tactics, and speculate whether agents may have helped radicalize Mateen.

    And finally, Democrats staged a 25-hour sit-in last week to get a vote on gun control. But have they undercut their efforts by hitching their proposals to secret terrorist watch-lists? There used to be a time when Democrats opposed the trappings of the national security state, when George W. Bush was president.
