FBI informant named; Michael Tanner; Kevin Grantham - The Rundown 5/21/18

It's been a pretty rough past week for me, and I'm soooooo glad to be back to talk with you. Still not feeling great, but it's great to be back to work. I'll tell you a bit more about what happened...maybe with a bit too much medical detail. :-)

Guests today:

7:06 AM: Michael Tanner of the Cato Institute joins us to talk about an interesting line of thinking he's been working on: What if the "success sequence" isn't nearly as robust a path to success as we've thought? In other words: we've been told that people should stay in school, get a job, get married, and not have a child until those things are done, if they want to succeed. But what if those things aren't really a recipe that everyone can follow?

8:06 AM: Colorado State Senate President Kevin Grantham just finished his last term as a state legislator. We'll talk about what was done for us -- or to us -- by the state government over the past several months, including regarding transportation, PERA, and more.

I'm not really into "royal weddings" and such, but there was something about the few minutes of this one I saw that was more interesting than the rest. Maybe it's because the bride is American? 

The line to the throne is rather interesting, much the same way that the line to the presidency is rather interesting:

A lot of very unusual political headlines over the past few days:

Did Donald Trump Jr. solicit help from another foreign country during the campaign?

Exactly when and why did an FBI informant make contact with members of the Trump Campaign team? Was he a "spy" or "implanted" as President Trump suggests? Was his function representative of true counter-intelligence or was it impermissible FBI involvement in politics?

In a Sunday tweet (embedded below), the president "demand"ed that the DOJ look into it. The DOJ immediately said they would:
