On this episode of Fault Lines, hosts Garland Nixon and Lee Stranahan discuss today's official announcement by Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders to join the growing field of declared 2020 Presidential candidates. How will Sen. Sanders candidacy be viewed this time around, and does he have a legitimate chance of winning the Democratic nomination? Guests: Teodrose Fikre - Co-Founder of Ghion Journal | #RussiaGate and the Ugly Face of Xenophobia Andrew Arthur - Resident Fellow in Law and Policy for the Center for Immigration Studies | The Legal Basis for Trump's National Emergency Caleb Maupin - Journalist & Political Analyst | Challenging Heather Nauert & US Foreign Policy John Kiriakou - Former CIA Officer & Co-Host of 'Loud and Clear' | Andy McCabe's '60 Minutes' Interview and a #DeepState Coup... In modern America, being labeled as a racist or bigot is oftentimes devastating to an individual's reputation and career possibilities. Despite this, the #RussiaGate investigation and demonization of Russia by the American mainstream press has to a point normalized bigotry and negative stereotyping against anyone/anything connected to Russia. Teodrose Fikre, co-founder of Ghion Journal, returns to Fault Lines to discuss this troubling trend and the blatant double standard which it represents. Last week, President Trump declared a 'National Emergency' to secure funding for his proposed southern border wall. On today's show, Andrew Arthur from the Center for Immigration Studies joins Garland and Lee to talk about the legal basis for Trump's emergency declaration and how the President intends to secure the southern border with these new funds. Former State Department Press Secretary Heather Nauert had been floated as possibly becoming the next US Ambassador to the UN, but has recently removed her name from consideration. Journalist and political analyst Caleb Maupin joins the show for the first time to discuss the situation in Syria and a contentious past interaction he had with Nauert during a State Department press briefing. For the final segment, former CIA Officer and current Sputnik radio host John Kiriakou joins Garland and Lee in-studio to discuss former Acting Director of the FBI Andy McCabe's explosive interview on CBS '60 Minutes' this past Sunday. What did McCabe's interview reveal about Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and the efforts to remove President Trump from office?
