It is widely believed that the final report from the Mueller probe report will be submitted next week.

Ambassador Peter Ford, the former UK Ambassador to Syria, joins the show.
Veterans for Peace is Thursday’s regular segment about the contemporary issues of war and peace that affect veterans, their families, and the country as a whole.

He has been a peace and solidarity activist for almost 50 years and has served on the Board of Veterans For Peace for the last 6 years, currently as national president.
