3/19/18 Mark Perry on Rex Tillerson's firing and the political workings behind it

Reporter Mark Perry returns to the show to discuss his latest article for The American Conservative, “The Political Forces Behind Rex Tillerson’s Firing.” Perry begins by breaking down what he calls the “Qatar Fiasco” and the role that Israel and its friendly American think tanks played in the increasing tensions between Qatar and the other Arab states. Perry then explains why he thinks the real investigation by Robert Mueller that will bear fruit is Jared Kushner’s potential “Pay For Play” with Saudi Arabia and the other Emirati states. Scott and Perry then turn to the Iran Deal and the potential fall out from Trump ripping up Obama’s work. Finally Scott asks Mark Perry: Is John Bolton going to be the next National Security Advisor?
Mark Perry is the author of Talking to Terrorists: Why America Must Engage with its Enemies and The Most Dangerous Man in America: The Making of Douglas MacArthurHis most recent book, The Pentagon’s Wars was released in October. Read his work at The American Conservative Magazine and follow him on Twitter @MarkPerryDC.
