Moe begins today's show with his 'Moe-ment of Truth," where he praises President Biden for how he has managed his relationship with Senator Joe Manchin, a key swing vote in the Senate. This comes on the heels of a new legislative agreement between Manchin, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, and President Biden, called "the Inflation Reduction Act."
The bill would bring in $739 billion in revenue and invest $433 billion in spending in areas like clean energy, tax credits, and reducing health care costs. It also addresses Manchin’s goal of reducing the deficit and would do so by $300 billion or more.
The bill still needs to garner 50 votes through the Senate's reconciliation process next week, including Senator Kyrsten Sinema, the other Democrat in the Senate whose vote has been tough for Schumer and Biden to count on.
However, the agreement between Manchin, Schumer and Biden is a huge breakthrough for the current legislative session.

For the remainder of the show, Moe is joined by John Nichols, a pioneering political blogger, who writes about politics for 'The Nation' as a national affairs correspondent. His pieces have been circulated internationally, quoted in numerous books, and mentioned in debates on the floor of Congress.

The two discuss his recent piece for 'The Nation' about former President Trump's during the January 6th Capitol insurrection. The piece is titled, "187 Minutes of Treason."

They also talk about the news out this week that the Justice Department is investigating Trump's actions as part of its criminal probe of efforts to overturn the 2020 election results.

John Nichols is a contributing writer for 'The Progressive' and 'In These Times' and the associate editor of 'the Capital Times,' the daily newspaper in Madison, Wisconsin. His articles have appeared in The New York Times, Chicago Tribune, and dozens of other newspapers.

Nichols also has written many great books, with his most recent being, "Coronavirus Criminals and Pandemic Profiteers: Accountability for Those Who Caused the Crisis."
