    Defending Democracy: Part One


    In the first of a three-part series, Defending Democracy, former FBI special agent Mike German will lift the curtain on some of these practices — from infiltration of minority communities, to squelching protest, to separating children from their parents at the borders — and discuss how cultivating fear comes right out of the authoritarian playbook.

    Interviewed by Peabody Award-winning Julie Burstein, Mike will discuss the current attacks on our democratic institutions like the Justice Department and FBI as they investigate the Trump Administration — and what they mean for achieving justice.



    Former FBI agent and Fellow at the Brennan Center for Justice

    Since 9/11, U.S. intelligence agencies have taken actions, in our name and in secret, that would shock and disturb many of us if we truly understood them. Mike German takes a closer look at some of these tactics and considers solutions to be found in strengthening our local communities.
