Reporter Craig Unger from New Republic talks about the connection between Russia and President Donald Trump.

In the latest issue of the magazine, Unger reports Trump has had financial dealings with Russians for more than three decades.


The Russian government has not released its reason for banning Democratic US Senator Mary Landrieu and eight other officials from the country. But there are at least two possibilities: orphans and energy.

Retired Lieutenant General Russel L. Honore joins Jim in the studio to discuss a plethora of issues and topics. In his usual passionate, loud and outspoken manner, the General talks about leading the Green Army, a loose network of environmental groups which tackles environmental issues such as saltwater intrusion in the Baton Rouge aquifer, the sinkhole at Bayou Corne, coastal erosion, and wetlands preservation. He touches on Louisiana's HIV problem, the seafood industry, and "holding Louisiana politicians accountable" for what they say and do, and specifically what they don't. The General wraps up the show by chiming in on Russia's invasion of the southern Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea and  what might ensue as a result of Putin's actions.
