FROM THIS EPISODE
The fallout from the James Comey firing continues to dominate the news. The White House today contradicted the narrative it presented yesterday, saying the President would have fired Comey regardless of the recommendation from his deputy attorney general.
Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe said former director James Comey enjoyed broad support within the FBI. What does this mean for the FBI’s investigation into the Russian meddling in the election? What does it mean for the relationship between the agency and the White House?
The play “Archduke” follows three men with tuberculosis and nothing left to lose. Poor and lost, these aimless youths end up involved in the killing of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the start of World War I. You can see it now at the Mark Taper Forum. We speak with playwright Rajiv Joseph, whose previous work, “Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo,” was a Pulitzer Prize finalist.
