7/1 Cliff Schecter: The GOP Implosion & Steve Cook: What is Driving Terror in Turkey

July 1, 2016

Cliff Schecter explains the conspiracy fueled state of the Republican Party and why the Benghazi investigations are an act of craven Republican politics. The contrast between the 9/11 investigations and Benghazi. Why are Republicans delusional in their attacks on Hilary Clinton. Why is Donald Trump’s campaign in such bad shape? What drives Republican extremism? Republicans say Trump is the worst but they won’t support Hillary Clinton. Why Republicans need to destroy themselves to make their base happy. Chris Christie might be Donald Trump’s VP pick. Trump’s campaign is a disaster and it will hurt the whole GOP. An important victory for women’s health. Trade and the Democratic Platform Committee and the Democrats failure to create a national narrative.

Steve Cook from the Council on Foreign Relations joins Michael to explain what is driving the security crisis in Turkey, the threats from ISIS and militant Kurdish fighters to soft targets in Turkey and does President Erdogan have the ability to pivot.
