"Scheer Intelligence" - Robert Scheer's New Podcast

The Huffington Post The Huffington Post 3/11/2015 Robert Scheer

In the premiere episode of KCRW's "Scheer Intelligence," Truthdig's editor-in-chief and USC communications professor sits down with John Dean, the former legal adviser to President Richard Nixon, who blew the lid on Watergate scandal. At the time of the scandal, Dean famously remarked that there was a "cancer on the presidency." Now an outspoken critic of the Republican Party, he describes Nixon as "a president who had a criminal mentality," adding: "[He] sought revenge against his perceived enemies [and] was going to use his presidency to that end. Had he not have been removed from office, there's no telling what he would have done to his so-called enemies." In this podcast, Dean offers his take on the misuse of power under the guise of national security both during Nixon's presidency and today.

Scheer Intelligence is a biweekly podcast available through KCRW and iTunes.
