Over the past few months, Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson has thrust himself the national spotlight for his role in blocking President Trump’s travel ban for residents of several Muslim-majority nations.
That’s not the only clash he’s had with Trump. Ferguson, a Democrat, has also sued over the administration’s effort to restart federal coal-mining leases on public lands, and he’s threatening a lawsuit over plans to possibly overturn the designations of National Monuments, including Hanford Reach.
In this week’s episode of The Overcast, the Seattle Times weekly politics podcast, Ferguson talks with Seattle Times reporters Jim Brunner and Daniel Beekman about how much of his job he views as dedicated to fighting the Trump administration. Hint: he has a weekly staff meeting devoted to the Trump administration.
