    The Donald Trump phenomenon has left many liberals with a case of collective - and selective - amnesia.

    Trump proposes eliminating due-process for terror suspects causing liberals to freak out. They seem unaware that other Republicans have pushed this same idea, and the Obama administration has also flirted with it.

    Then, the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) is setting up a showdown between Congress and the White House. But even if the legislative branch overrides the veto, 9/11 victims don’t seem likely to get justice, under the law. Just Security’s Steve Vladeck joins us to discuss the matter.

    And, one Democratic lawmaker has introduced legislation to force the Department of Homeland Security to designate voting machines as “critical infrastructure” — we discuss in a classified session.

    We'd love to get your feedback at radio@sputniknews.com
