Today’s edition of quick hits.
Inspired by her research for the hit podcast Ultra, in "PREQUEL: An American Fight Against Fascism" Rachel Maddow traces the fight to preserve American democracy back to World War II, when a handful of committed public servants and brave private citizens thwarted far-right plotters trying to steer our nation toward an alliance with the Nazis. Coming October 17.
Now that Rudy Giuliani has been indicted in Georgia, his list of troubles has gotten much worse. But he's not the only Trump co-conspirator facing charges.
As Donald Trump vows to unveil "irrefutable" evidence to bolster his election lies, let's not forget what happened the last time he issued such a "report."
Rachel Maddow is back at the mic with a new original series, “Rachel Maddow Presents: Déjà News.” In each episode, Rachel and co-host Isaac-Davy Aronson seek a deeper understanding of a story in today's headlines by asking: Has anything like this ever happened before? Would knowing that help us grapple with what’s happening now… and what might happen next?
