This week, Nate and Francis are joined by special guest and friend of the show Ken Klippenstein (@KenKlippenstein), a reporter for the Nation who has become the master of leaks. We discuss his recent reporting about DHS’s “Fusion Cells” in Portland, their presence as masked goons disappearing people into rental vans, and how the entire structure of the agency is a holdover of Bush-era paranoia.
