Appearances on MSNBC's "The Last Word" with Lawrence O'Donnell
MSNBC's "The Last Word" invited me live on the air to speak to host Lawrence O'Donnell multiple times, first the day after the release of the Mueller report to analyze the mystery redacted cases referred to other jurisdictions and later to discuss a federal judge's ruling refusing to quash congressional subpoenas of President Trump's Deutsche bank records.

CBC Analysis on Jeffrey Epstein's bail denial
The day a federal judge denied bail to hyper-wealthy sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, CBC News invited me on its prime-time show News Network Tonight to speak to host Natasha Fatah about what unfolded in court.
In this clip, I describe Judge Berman's findings that Epstein presented a danger to the community and posed a flight risk pending trial for sex-trafficking charges.
Live Interview with Canada's CTV on Michael Cohen's sentencing
After President Donald Trump's personal attorney and "fixer" Michael Cohen received a three-year sentence, Canada's CTV invited me on the air for a live interview about the proceedings and their aftermath.
In this segment, I describe the scene inside the courtroom, the weight of the Cohen's prison term, the impact of his cooperation, and what it could mean for Trump in the ongoing probe on hush-money payments to two women and Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election.
This 7-minute reel features excerpts from interviews with three heads of state: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on his 2017 U.N. General Assembly speech, former Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa on his country's litigation against Chevron, and Antigua/Barbuda Prime Minister Gaston Browne on Hurricane Irma's devastation.
Also included are portions from guest appearances on Reason TV and the Long Island Press, where he was invited to discuss the court-martial of WikiLeaks source Chelsea Manning.
U.N. Press Conference with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
Following his U.N. General Assembly speech dedicated to his country’s abuse of its indigenous population, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tells me at a press conference that his nation's experience with Truth and Reconciliation Commission could serve as a model to help the United States confront white supremacist violence that left one activist dead in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Aug. 12, 2017.

Interview with Ex-Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa on the Chevron Pollution Case
In this exclusive interview with former Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa at New York City's Pierre Hotel in 2014, I spoke with the leader about a more than $9 billion judgment against Chevron for oil devastation to the Amazon rainforest.
In the unedited 20-minute video, linked here, Correa discussed his administration's controversial plans to drill in the ecologically sensitive Yasuní region, and remarks he made on Julian Assange's "The World Tomorrow" on RT.
Chelsea Manning Court-Martial on Reason TV
Reason TV produced this segment days before a military judge issued a verdict in the Manning trial, in which I joined a panel discussion of the case with independent journalist Alexa O'Brien and Bloomberg commentator Eli Lake.
Manning was ultimately convicted of violating the Espionage Act, the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and other charges, but acquitted of the aiding-the-enemy count discussed in this video. Before former President Obama commuted her sentence, she had been serving a 35-year sentence for her disclosures to WikiLeaks.
