Should our corrupt Deep Staters go to jail? We sample the commentary of many who think so, including Newt Gingrich, Lou Dobbs and Judge Jeanine Pirro. Former FBI Assistant Director James Kallstrom says the FBI's Peter Strzok "belongs in Leavenworth." Columnist Charles Hurt describes the "most sinister and corrupt Deep State anyone could ever have imagined." Tom Fitton, of Judicial Watch, compares today's FBI to the KGB. Responding to such sentiments, CNN's Jake Tapper excoriates such "incredibly extremist rhetoric" and strains to defend Mueller & Strzok against recent revelations. For good measure, CNN propagandist Brian Stelter piles on with trademark tut-tutting. Meanwhile, presidential advisor Kellyanne Conway describes the FBI's "insurance policy" as evidence of how "the fix was in" against Trump from the beginning. Plus, we commemorate the 244th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party and offer our vignettes on this week's Swedish Christmas celebration at IKEA. With Listener Calls & Music via the Standells, the Stone Temple Pilots, Dwight Yoakam and Erasure. Also, the Swedish "Sankta Lucia" of Elever Fran Adolf Fredriks Musikskola.
