This episode of Felony Friday will have a little bit of a different flavor. Instead of interviewing an expert or analyzing felonies trending in the news this entire episode will be dedicated to analyzing President-elect Donald Trump's pick for Attorney General, Jeff Sessions. Sessions has been an extremely controversial pick. Liberals have called him a racist. Libertarians have voiced concerns with his stance on mass incarceration and the war on drugs. On this show we'll be getting to the core of whoe Jeff Sessions really is.
In order to discuss this very important topic Felony Friday host John Odermatt invited one of the most popular members of the Lions of Liberty crew to help to sort through stacks upon stacks of Jeff Sessions documents. This individual has most recently been a frequent contributor to the popular feature "Mr. Johnson's Libertyhood." He's a constant participant on Lions of Liberty round table discussions. He is the Lions of Liberty official legal counsel. That's right the one and only "Rico" helped to co-host this very important analysis of Donald Trump's pick for Attorney General.
