FROM Wayne Barrett
Are New York FBI agents out to get Hillary Clinton? This year's campaign has been a field day for investigative reporters. We hear the latest: about the former Mayor of New York, the Manhattan office of the FBI and the Trump campaign. Two days before FBI Director James Comey rocked the presidential campaign with his vague announcement about reviewing more emails, Rudy Giuliani told Fox News the Trump campaign had a couple things "up our sleeves" to turn things around. Was he leaked information from the FBI? Wayne Barrett is author of Rudy: An Investigative Biography and Trump: the Deals and the Downfall . His latest story for the Daily Beast is headlined, "Meet Donald Trump’s Top FBI Fanboy."
Donald Trump: A Look at the Man behind the Message In the first months of campaigning for the GOP presidential nomination, Donald Trump has relied on sweeping generalities. That and similar promises are now familiar -- and Trump's failure to back them up with substantive detail has not eroded his base of support.

Is President Trump taking his "America First" agenda to extremes, withdrawing the country from the international stage on trade and climate change, distancing America from its traditional allies across the Atlantic and even threatening to physically isolate the country through the building of a wall along its southern border? León Krauze guest hosts.
Is the threat from Russia missing from the Russia meddling probe? There's much being made about the Trump administration's possible ties with Russia. But the bottom line is Russia's effort to influence American democracy. Do the President and his aides care enough to take action before voters go back to the polls?
What is Trump's plan for Middle East peace? On his first foreign tour, President Trump has promised "peace" between Israel and the Palestinians. Are there any details for re-starting talks that have been stalled for the past three years?
Replacing Obamacare: Now you see it… now you don’t As the Senate deliberates replacing Obmacare, health coverage for millions of people is at stake. There've been no public hearings, and a draft measure won't be made public. Is the House version so unpopular that that Senate is hiding a version that looks much the same?
