Trey and Ken start the episode discussing the recently passed National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Three key items the hosts zero in on are: the nature of passing it with bipartisan support, the temporary renewal of Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, and funding for Ukraine.
Next, they discuss the newly passed impeachment inquiry vote in the House along with Hunter Biden’s decision to defy a Congressional subpoena. Here things get heated. Trey sees Hunter’s decision as emblematic of his long standing wrong doing while Ken sees Hunter no differently than how any other family member has exploited the White House for profit. They also disagree over whether he should have testified. Trey says yes and Ken says Hunter was right to defy the order.
The pair close on the most recent events in the Hamas / Israel conflict. This includes a discussion of the growing split on the left over support for Israel and Ken trying to help Trey understand why many on the left see Israel as a colonizer state.
