Republicans are making plans if they win control of the House in November. Chris Lehmann, The Nation’s new DC bureau chief, reports that their top targets include the National Labor Relations Board and the Department of Labor.

Also on this week’s show, Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy joins us to share how on January 6, when senators took refuge from the mob attacking the Capitol, they prepared to complete the work of counting the electoral votes in their underground bunker, until he insisted they should wait until they could return to the Senate chamber. Leahy’s new book is The Road Taken.
