I always look forward to what Mr. Rosenberg has to say in his contributions to MSNBC, because he is remarkably even and clear. With this podcast, he greatly expands on the breadth of his knowledge, and ours. Outstanding!

Excellent, remarkable interview with a true hero by a true hero. Even though I read McCabe's book "The Threat" I gained unexpected insight and knowledge about the men and the jobs they did in the FBI.

Jim Baker ran the Office of Intelligence Policy and Review at the Justice Department both before and after 9/11 – the office responsible for handling extraordinarily sensitive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) applications.

Jim also discusses his work as the General Counsel of the FBI and several fascinating issues that arose during his tenure, including the debate over encryption following the San Bernardino terrorist attack, the “Going Dark” problem, and how the FBI addressed a difficult issue that affected the work of the storied FBI Laboratory.
