    Trump may be singling out big businesses in the US by name, but he’s not doing it for populist reasons.

    The AT&T/Time Warner merger could offer us our first glimpse into just how the Trump administration plans to rein in the power of big business in the US. But already one Senator is skeptical, noting Trump’s animosity toward Time Warner’s news assets.

    Also, a development to report in the jostling for control over the Democratic Party. Keith Ellison silences some of his critics, with a major announcement about the race for DNC chair.

    Also, a ranking Democrat on the House Oversight Committee is accusing Republican leadership of blocking an investigation to determine if the Russian government actually did interfere in the US elections. That story coming up later in a classified session.

    Finally, what is a Hillary Man doing making a Twitter Enemies List? We bring on journalist and historian Eoin Higgins to talk about everyone’s favorite account, Al Giordano. Welcome to Blockville, Dudebros. Eoin also chats to us about a recent article he wrote, taking a closer look at Rep. Tulsi Gabbard.
