Former Congressman Connie Mack comes on to talk about the Trump Dossier and accountability in Washington. Mack shares his thoughts about what Jeff Sessions should do to get to the bottom of the Russian investigation, and he describes the stonewalling he’s seen in the State Department, full of Obama appointees still loyal to the past administration.
Mack talks about his experience in Congress, starting the Freedom Caucus, his philosophy to cut government and whether he believes a person is capable of doing more in Congress or out of it.
On the episode, Chuck and Mark also talk about the many ways that the Left ignores and misuses the Constitution.
