Obviously, the biggest news from yesterday was that Katy Perry now has more Twitter followers than any other human alive. By a big margin. Her insightful wisdom – the reasons why so many people hang on her every word – can be seen in the most recent Tweet she sent.
I did manage to also cover James Comey’s “press conference,” that happened just after yesterday’s show, as well. Listen to today’s show here:
Constitutional Sound Bite – David Shestokas
The magnitude of the FBI Director’s statements yesterday necessitated a detour from continuing through the next couple of Sound Bites. David’s experience as a prosecutor and years of being on both sides of numerous criminal/civil cases provide a breadth of knowledge and experience about the law that was invaluable in informing our discussion.
His response to the news: he physically felt SICK when he realized what was going on.
Overall opinion: she clearly committed numerous violations of the law and the decision to NOT prosecute was utterly absurd.
Next week we will return to the Constitution – in the mean time, buy the book HERE:

We also got around to discussing how Donald Trump managed to divert attention from H-Rod to himself (by complimenting Saddam Hussein):
