Politics Podcast: James Comey Has A Lot To Say. Is Any Of It New?

Former FBI Director James Comey has a lot to say about President Trump and the 2016 presidential election in his new book. The FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast crew sorts through which, if any, of his revelations are new or meaningful.

The team also talks about the U.S. airstrikes in Syria and looks at what the public thinks of U.S. humanitarian intervention. Then the gang discusses whether House Speaker Paul Ryan’s decision not to run for re-election will affect Republican prospects in the midterms.
