  • 60 - Biden freezes, Trump rambles: Who's winning the cognitive war?

    Biden's appearances at the G7 photo call and the Democrat fundraiser have raised eyebrows because of video circulating that appears to show him freezing at certain moments.

    The White House says don't fall for the clips- they're edited videos or 'cheap fakes'.

    What's going on? Why are Dems so defensive? And why is Trump mixing up his own doctor's name when he talks about his superior cognitive abilities.

    It's all shaping up to be a bizarre first TV debate 9 days from now - and we may - may see one more candidate on the stage in the shape of Robert F Kennedy JR.

    Later, what's going on at the Washington Post - that bastion of investigative reporting. Mutiny in the newsroom currently over their newish British publisher - and his past role working for Murdoch. We speak to writer for The Daily Beast, Harry Lambert.

    And why is the Governor of Maryland pardoning hundreds of thousands of convicts?

  • 58 - How is Donald Trump planning his revenge?

    Donald Trump is wondering aloud what prison would be like.

    He probably doesn't have to -it's extremely unlikely that the sentence eventually handed down to him in July will be custodial. But his MAGA henchmen are already talking about what happens if he wins in November, and what their revenge on the prosecutors who tried him will be.

    Has belief in the rule of law amongst MAGA voters broken down? And what is this doing to America?

    And whilst one trial is behind us, another has just kicked off.

    Hunter Biden, the President's only living son, is in court in Delaware on charges of falsification after he bought a gun as a drug addict. But can Democrats use this moment to their advantage?

  • 57 - Donald Trump: guilty on all counts

    Trump is found guilty in New York.

    Just before 5pm on Thursday New York time the airwaves started cracking with news of an imminent verdict. Twenty minutes later the jury in a Manhattan court returned. And pronounced Donald Trump guilty on each one of the 34 counts.

    Donald Trump can still run for president. So in one respect this may change nothing.

    But let’s not let this moment of history escape - a former and possible future president who is now a convicted felon. What happens to his freedom, his vote and his temper now? And how should the Democrats play it?

  • 56 - The Trump trial is over. Will he be found guilty?

    The Trump first trial, over hush money paid to porn star Stormy Daniels, is over. The real question is, as the jury deliberate - will he be found guilty?

    All this, while the Biden campaign sweats over stuttering polling data and a president who is apparently obstinate and determined to run the campaign his way. How can they turn the tide?
