Today I am joined by returning guest and resident foreign policy expert at the Libertarian Union, Kyle Anzalone. We discuss the history of Iran, the history of the Iran Deal, and Trump pulling out of said deal. We also discuss confirmed torturer Gina Haspel’s interview with the Senate Intelligence Committee on her way to becoming  CIA Director, as well as how veteran CIA analyst and whistle blower Ray McGovern was brutally assaulted by capitol police after his protestation of the hearing.
