David Cay Johnston is a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and author of the recently published book The Making of Donald Trump. In their conversation, Johnston tells Robert Scheer about Trump’s dealings with criminals and how his own illegal actions have escaped consequences. He also discusses how Trump’s success and candidacy are examples of a rigged financial system. And Johnston explains why he believes journalists are not the powerful democratic force they once were.
