Welcome Ali Velshi:

We’re joined on the Starline by author, host, journalist and MSNBC Chief Correspondent. His latest project is editor of “The Trump Indictments”. We welcome Ali Velshi.

Ali, let’s go Beyond the Mic. We could spend days looking at these cases and the 91 criminal counts against the former president of the United States. My question to you is why was it important to put them all together in one book?

Ali, you are a self-admitted Kenyan born Muslim. What does democracy mean to you?

Why do you think the United States has gone from a two party system that used to fairly work together to a two party system with extreme factions that won’t work with anyone?

The Rockin’ 8:

It’s time for the Rockin’ 8, 8 random questions, answer with the first thing that comes to your mind. There is no Pressure.

1. Favorite suit is made by who?
