I have not been closely following Donald Trump's myriad of lawsuits filed by his crack legal team of Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis and Sydney Powell because it's all so ludicrous. There is simply too much actual important information I need to stay on top of.
So the "elite strike force" hadn't commanded too much of my attention-- well, except for the parts blaming Hugo Chavez for fixing the vote and the black crud leaking from inside Rudy's head-- until I had a conversation with Brad Friedman. Brad has been doing intrepid investigative journalism on US election issues -- from touchscreen voting machines to hanging chads to voter suppression and beyond -- for almost two decades now.
About 10 years ago, Brad reported extensively on the problems with most electronic voting machines, including Dominion. And some of those stories appear to have provided the backdrop to some of the ridiculous allegations of "voter fraud" and "fixed" races Trump's been claiming. It's all surreal.
So, Brad Friedman joins us today to explain what this is all about. The main point he makes is that they relied on his reporting to form the basis of their story, but they got every fact wrong.

It's the day before Thanksgiving Day, and this is the best I've felt in four long years. Obviously, all is not great, but we're better off now that the orange menace will be evicted from the White House in 55 days or so. There's news to share today as Trump goes further off the deep end and Joe Biden projects calm and competence. We'll check in with Ari Berman of Mother Jones for his take on how the election went and what it portends for the future. And we'll see where else the day takes us.

The Trumpers in DC finally saw the writing on the wall and have allowed the transition to begin. That's one of many things I'll talk about with @GottaLaff. She joins me today, as she does every Tuesday, to talk about what's happening in our world, which seems a bit more normal today than it has for the past few years!

Donald Trump routinely throws around the "treason" accusation, always wrongly. But when viewing his actions since election day, I think the charge sticks to him! I know we're not officially at war, but he is guilty of the crime of betraying his country, which is the definition of "treasonous". Some are saying he's guilty of sedition, rather than treason. I thought it was time to call in an expert. So I'm joined today by Carlton F.W. Larson. Larson is Professor of Law at US/Davis, where he teaches American Constitutional Law and legal history. He's known as the preeminent experts on the subject of treason. In fact, his new book is called "On Treason: A Citizen's Guide to the Law. Professor Larson joins us at the beginning of the show. And since today marks the 20th anniversary of the day a judge in Kazakhstan granted my adoption and tomorrow is the 20th anniversary of us leaving the orphanage together, I shared a little back story, and a video about our journey done by Gayle King.

We wrap up another week today with the squatters in the White House trying to upend democracy and reverse the results of the election. I'll have the latest on Trump's attempts to subvert the will of the people in Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin. John Nichols, National Affairs Correspondent for The Nation, joins us from Wisconsin, where the orange one has demanded another recount that won't change anything. In the second part of the show, I'm joined by "Boca" Britany Somers. This week has been Transgender Awareness Week, and today is Transgender Remembrance Day. Brit claims to be 'The Only Licensed Transgender Broadcaster on the smoldering remains of Terrestrial Radio'. She also has a few words to share about the FCC...
