The News with Rick Sanchez - December 5, 2019 (20:00 ET)

Rick Sanchez discusses a recent report that Washington intends to send as many as 14,000 more US troops to the Middle East, and the Pentagon’s denial thereof. Then RT America’s Faran Fronczak reports on the US’s fraught Middle East policy and its growing belligerence toward Iran. Plus, retired US Army officer and former West Point instructor Maj. Danny Sjursen shares his insights. He points out that President Trump is so “damaged” by the pressure of impeachment that he may turn to military action against Iran in an attempt to improve his popularity.

Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura joins to discuss NATO and the power of the war lobby in Washington.

RT’s Charlotte Dubenskij reports from Paris on violent protests over proposed pension reform.

Then syndicated columnist Ruben Navarrette, host of the Navarrette Nation Podcast, joins to discuss the muddled state of American media. 

Dear readers and commenters,

We have implemented a new engine for our comment section. We hope the transition goes smoothly for all of you. Unfortunately, the comments made before the change have been lost due to a technical problem. We are working on restoring them, and hoping to see you fill up the comment section with new ones. You should still be able to log in to comment using your social-media profiles, but if you signed up under an RT profile before, you are invited to create a new profile with the new commenting system.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and looking forward to your future comments,

RT Team.
