Doing Your Job and Paying the Price: Why the Obama Administration Won’t Defend Its Own. Democratic Perspective co-hosts Mike Cosentino and Steve Williamson discuss the case of Daryl Johnson, former Senior Domestic Terrorist Analyst at the Dept. of Homeland Security, Office of Intelligence and Analysis, whose department was disbanded after Republicans complained about a well-documented report he authored on the potential threat of right-wing domestic terrorism.
He’s not the first Obama Administration official to be disciplined or even fired outright for telling the truth, and he may not be the last. Mike and Steve examine why Democrats seemingly won’t defend their own against the media frenzies generated by Republican lies and disinformation.
