  On this edition of Your Call’s media roundtable, we’ll discuss the violent crack-down on the anti-government protests in Sudan. Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir declared a year-long state of emergency, banned protests, and gave sweeping power to security forces.

We’ll also talk about Michael Cohen’s testimony before Congress. Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer accused him of being a racist, a conman, and a cheat with a long history of tax and insurance fraud. What's next?

Guests:

Hana Baba, co-host of KALW's Crosscurrents, a daily radio news magazine show

David Cay Johnston, Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter, and author of It's Even Worse Than You Think: What the Trump Administration Is Doing to America

Scott Horton, contributing editor at Harper’s Magazine, and author of Lords of Secrecy: The National Security Elite and America’s Stealth Warfare
