Catalonian Independence & Paul Manafort Indictment

This morning’s episode covers the declared independence of Catalonia from Spain, and the political push back and consequences. Sebastiaan Faber, Professor of Hispanic Studies at Oberlin College and author of Memory Battles of the Spanish Civil War, speaks with KPFA about the nuances of the situation as tensions heighten. Trumps former campaign manager Paul Manafort, as well as his business partner Rick Gates have been indicted. The criminal allegations involved have to do with pro-Russia lobbying in Ukraine, and are not about Trump or his campaign specifically. Bob Dreyfuss, a reporter for Rolling Stone and the Nation, discusses the legal and political details of this case with us this morning.
