The two dig into the Mueller report, the work that Levin has done on the issue of Iraqi detainees in and around Detroit facing deportation and the bill he introduced that’s meant to address that issue. “These are people who are working, paying taxes… it does our country no good to deport these people,” says Levin.

Levin also weighs in on his concerns about the stance that the Trump administration is taking toward Iran.
