This week, speculation about the identity of the anonymous whistleblower at the center of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump has made headlines and sparked controversy regarding the dangers of revealing their legally protected identity. Sunday’s episode features a segment with five of the most prominent whistleblowers in U.S. history as they discuss the impact their decisions to come forward had on their lives, the role of the media and their reflections on the individual who blew the whistle on the Trump administration’s dealings with Ukraine.
AXIOS hears from Edward Snowden, who duplicated and shared classified information from the National Security Agency; Daniel Ellsberg, who released the Pentagon Papers; Frank Serpico, who reported evidence of widespread police corruption within the NYPD; Sherron Watkins, who exposed Enron’s improper accounting methods; and Jeffrey Wigand, who blew the whistle on big tobacco.
From DACA to the border wall, immigration continues to be one of the country’s most prominent issues. In this episode, AXIOS delves into the “Remain in Mexico” policy and travels to a shelter in Juarez, Mexico where international asylum seekers stay as they await their hearings in the U.S. AXIOS talks to a family from Guatemala about their journey and others on the ground working to protect the rights and freedoms of those seeking asylum in the United States. Then, Axios co-founder Jim VandeHei speaks with the Acting Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Mark Morgan and Axios White House Editor, Margaret Talev, speaks with Ken Cuccinelli, the Acting Director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, about the implementation of “Remain in Mexico” and the recent changes to U.S. immigration policy.
Plus, Axios Business Editor, Dan Primack, and Co-Founder, Mike Allen, sit down with Uber CEO, Dara Khosrowshahi, for a discussion about the gig economy, autonomous Ubers and the company’s goals to turn a profit.
