Jeff Flake Talks Impeachment and More

February 3, 2020

S1: Last week while Washington was barreling forward with an impeachment inquiry I flew to Texas.

S2: It seemed like a pretty awful time to be off the show. But I wanted to go anyway because I had this interview to do a live show at the Texas Tribune Festival.

S3: Hey everyone. Hey. I’m Mary Harris. I host Slate’s daily news podcast. What next. And when I say it’s daily I mean five days a week. Although right now I feel like I could use an hourly podcast. Giving me updates. I don’t know if you feel the same way.

S2: I was there to speak to former Senator Jeff Flake. You remember him the Republican who held up the cabinet hearings. He retired last year but before doing that he’d made a name for himself as a reliable critic of President Trump.
