Laura Flanders Show - Lisa Graves: The Extremist Revolution & Democracy Hanging by a Thread

The American Right is embracing a dangerous extremism, challenging elections, packing courts and aligning with Hungarian prime minister and Putin-ally Victor Orban. In the midst of a climate catastrophe, with a majority on the Supreme Court poised to overturn Roe v. Wade, and the House preparing to hear from the select committee investigating the January 6 insurrection, what is at stake and how did we get here? Can the process of shrinking democracy work in reverse? In this episode, Laura speaks with Lisa Graves, a lawyer and researcher who has advised every branch of the federal government. And we'll air an exclusive clip of a speech from Jan. 6 Committee member, Rep. Jamie Raskin. Will extremism continue to build momentum in the US or can it be stopped? "What's at stake is our democracy and our freedom to pursue our dreams" Lisa Graves, Executive Director & Editor-in-Chief, True North Research. Guest: Lisa Graves, Executive Director & Editor-in-Chief, True North Research; Board President, Center for Media and Democracy.
