  • Scribecast: Author Peter Schweizer Exposes the Permanent Political Class

    Peter Schweizer doesn’t have many friends on Capitol Hill these days. So few, in fact, that he was told not to even show his face at a congressional hearing on insider trading — even though that hearing was the direct result of his new book, “Throw Them All Out.”

    Schweizer, a fellow at the Hoover Institution, spoke at The Heritage Foundation this week about his research on the “permanent political class” in Washington, D.C., and the crony capitalism that has enraged so many across America. We caught up with him for this week’s edition of Scribecast.

    Listen to the interview with Peter Schweizer on this week’s Scribecast

    In the interview, Schweizer explains the years of work it took to write the book and the scandalous information he uncovered about insider trading and other sweetheart deals that have enriched politicians.

    The podcast runs about 10 minutes. It was produced with the help of Hannah Sternberg. Listen to previous interviews on Scribecast or subscribe to future episodes.

      I don't understand. Congress is not exempt from the law. They need to be investigated, and indicted if found guilty. Why do we need to pass a law saying congress must follow there or laws I call on holder or the FBI to investigate those members of congress. Republican or democrat that are found guilty to be brought to justice. Oh I forgot. Both positions are political. This will never happen. The stink of Washington is infecting the world It took me three days to read" throw them all out" as it made me sick. In the 30's they at least hid their crimes, now the scum(congress ) under polosie and bonner have just flaunted their power. God help us.
