Counterpoint with Scott Harris

1) Political strategist Rachel Bitecofer, author of “The Unprecedented 2016 Presidential Election,” discusses her views on the GOP response to what we’re told is the impending indictment of Donald Trump in New York and insights from her research into the totalitarian movements of the 1920s and 1930.

2) Bettina Hager, Director, Outreach and Advocacy with the ERA Coalition/Fund for Women’s Equality, talks about the ERA Coalition’s work in states across the U.S. to pass Equal Rights Amendment-related resolutions on the 51st anniversary of Congress’ passage of the ERA.

3) Diane Duston, widow of award-winning investigative journalist Robert Parry, discusses the recent New York Times story, “A Four-Decade Secret: One Man’s Story of Sabotaging Carter’s Re-election,” and Parry’s key role in uncovering the facts surrounding former President Ronald Reagan’s involvement in delaying the release of U.S. hostages held in Iran in 1979 on the eve of the 1980 U.S. presidential election.

4) New Haven attorney Alex Taubes examines the current debate over the renomination of Carleton Giles as chair of the Connecticut Board of Pardons and Parole. He’ll share his views on criticism leveled at Giles by Republican legislators who oppose the major increase in the number of commutations issued to inmates, convicted on charges ranging from property crimes to murder, serving more than a 10-year sentence.
