Strategy Session

Steven Beschloss, one of the essential voices in the pro-democracy fight, sat down with Rick, Joe, and Stuart to talk about the GOP strategy of denial - from the 2020 election results to the jury's verdict. In case you hadn't heard, it was GUILTY on all 34 felony counts. Just thought we'd mention that. The four discussed the GOP war on elections, the rule of law, decency, and democracy - and the work we'll have to do post-2024 even after Biden wins. We're glass half full here at Resolute Square!
