On this episode of the Start Making Sense podcast, D.D. Guttenplan, editor of The Nation, argues that it’s time to impeach Clarence Thomas, on the grounds of misconduct. He also says it’s time to remove and replace Diane Feinstein, on the grounds of her inability to perform her duties, especially on the Judiciary Committee, where her absence has denied the Democrats a majority.

Also on this episode: Joe Biden announced that the theme of his reelection campaign will be that the Democrats are the party of “freedom.” But the Republicans claim they are the defenders of freedom. Who’s right? Eric Foner, author of The Story of American Freedom, joins the show to discuss.
