54: Andrew Weissman on Trump's criminality and Kathleen Belew on the hidden threat of white supremacy

Politics War Room with James Carville & Al Hunt

Government & Organization

The President and his team have been infected with the Coronavirus, giving new significance to the phrase October Surprise.  But even though James and Al think an electoral blow out is coming, it’s too early for Democrats to get comfortable— there are too many threats.  Guest Professor Kathleen Belew details the rise of white supremacist movements and their plans for overthrowing the United States, while former DOJ Fraud Section Chief Andrew Weissmann tells us that Bill Barr has downplayed the foreign plans to affect our elections.  Is our country at risk once again?

TWEET YOUR QUESTIONS FOR JAMES AND AL TO @POLITICON AND THEY WILL ANSWER THEM ON NEXT WEEK'S EPISODE!
