The eviction moratorium, Nina Turner’s loss, the opioid epidemic

Lee Camp takes a look back at how Congress played economic brinkmanship with the eviction moratorium over the past week. Millions of people were threatened with eviction without the moratorium. If it weren’t for Representative Cori Bush and the people who slept at the Capitol with her, evictions would be in full swing right now. But the extension of the eviction moratorium is just a temporary fix for a problem that requires a radical solution – guaranteed housing. Camp also reports on Joe Biden’s corporate-friendly infrastructure bill, Nina Turner’s electoral loss in Ohio after dark money flooded in to her opponents, and more.

This week, Redacted Tonight introduces our newest correspondent Jaffer Khan. Khan reports on a story of intrigue from the Pentagon. Nuclear secrets were leaked through an online test preparation website. The incident exposes the absurdity of the US defense industry and its bloated budgets. Anders Lee looks into the newest way in which the US is letting billionaires get away with murder. The Sackler family made major profits from an opioid boom in the US. The opiate crisis devastated counties across the US and the Sacklers will pay a relatively small fine for their active role in the opioid epidemic.
