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.
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.
