InfluenceWatch Podcast #231: Bad Apples

Hello, I’m Michael Watson and this is the InfluenceWatch Podcast. This week, FBI agents conducted a search at the Florida residence of former President Donald Trump.

Joining me to discuss the FBI’s complicated history is my colleague Ken Braun, who recently wrote a history of the “G-Men” for InfluenceWatch and CapitalResearch.org.
