Washington Post reporter ROBERT COSTA joins us to talk about his new book, Peril, co-authored with Bob Woodward. It’s an account of the tumultuous few months following the 2020 election, as the Trump presidency was ending and President Biden’s began. Their investigation reveals that it was one of the most dangerous periods in our nation’s history. This hour, we talk with Costa about what occurred during this tenuous transfer of power, the events of January 6th and the aftermath, and the actions of some of the key figures, including former President Trump, Vice President Pence, Attorney General Bill Barr and General Mark Milley. We’ll also talk about the Senate Report, that was released yesterday, examining Trump’s attempts to pressure the DOJ to overturn the election.
Journalist Robert Costa is known for his in-depth reporting on former president Donald Trump and for co-authoring a new book with legendary journalist Bob Woodward, but his first claim to fame was convincing John Mayer to play at his high school prom. Robert joined David to talk about his years covering the Republican Party, the ongoing threats he sees to U.S. democracy, what he learned about reporting from Bob Woodward, and their book, Peril.To learn more about how CNN protects listener privacy, visit cnn.com/privacy
Peril by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa (Politics for the People)
What Does it Teach us About Trump. The host for this show is Jay Fidell. The guests are Tim Apicella and Winston Welch. Our panel discusses the revelations in the Peril book that has just come, out and how they connect to demonstrate that Trump was actually attempting a coup at the end of his term, if not before. We discuss the conspirators involved the coup and what each of them did, the status of the investigations of the Select Committee Investigation and the Attorney General, what all this means to the administration, the government and the country going forward, and whether these revelations are having or will have any effect on Trump's base and his prospects as leader of the Republican Party and as a candidate for president in 2024.

Late Night with Seth Meyers Podcast
On Reporting and Politics—Robert Costa, The Washington Post and Washington Week
With a Side of Knowledge
The idea behind this show is pretty simple: We invite scholars, makers, and professionals out to brunch for an informal conversation about their work, and then we turn those brunches into a podcast.It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it.For this, our season 3 finale, we’re turning the virtual interview chair around on Notre Dame alum Robert Costa, national political reporter for The Washington Post and the moderator and managing editor of Washington Week on PBS.While Robert’s work is the news, he and host Ted Fox talked more about the craft of journalism generally—and political journalism specifically—than everything going on in our country and our world in 2020. We figure you have much better outlets for content like that, such as Robert’s own reporting and that of the journalists from diverse organizations and backgrounds he talks to on Washington Week.That said, the health disparities magnified by the coronavirus and the recent examples of police brutality are just the latest reminders of how much we need the work and perspectives of African-American journalists in particular. So while it’s not directly related to this episode, we wanted to use this spot to recommend you follow Richard Jones and Victoria St. Martin, formerly of The New York Times and The Washington Post, respectively, and currently shaping the next generation of journalists through their work with students at Notre Dame. We’ve put links to both of their Twitters in the notes below.And speaking of episode notes, there’s also a video of the late Tim Russert there that you’re going to hear Robert talk about. It’s one of many great stories he shared on pursuing a career as a reporter in the nation’s capital during a time of rapid change in the news industry, a journey that for him has included succeeding the legendary Gwen Ifill at PBS. He also used the provost office at Notre Dame to illustrate how anonymous sourcing works. You know, in case we ever really need to get anything off our chests.Take good care, and we’ll be talking to you again soon. Because sources close to the podcast tell us there might be some bonus episodes on the way this summer.LINKSRichard Jones’ Twitter: @richard_g_jonesVictoria St. Martin’s Twitter: @VStMartinRobert Costa’s Twitter: @costareportsVideo Excerpts of Tim Russert’s Red Smith Lecture: “When Politicians Meet the Press”Full Transcript of Russert Lecture
