Potter also discusses his career working for insurance giants, soaring medical costs in the U.S., and his role in killing Hillary Clinton’s health care initiative in the 1990s.
ProPublica reporter Ian MacDougall discusses McKinsey’s relationship with the Saudi regime, its work for Rikers Island, and how it helped push opioids to doctors and patients. MacDougall also lays out his reporting on how McKinsey’s work for Immigration and Customs Enforcement in detaining and deporting immigrants disturbed career immigration officials.
Also, the Justice Department’s inspector general blasted the FBI over its lies and omissions in obtaining a secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant to spy on Trump campaign operative Carter Page.
