The Mole with Special Guest Craig Unger

"Was Charles McGonigal Putin's mole inside the FBI's New York field office?" Zev asks on this week's podcast. McGonigal is the subject of two federal indictments and faces new claims he was involved in a $300 Million Kremlin oil scheme. If proven, this could be the biggest scandal in recent FBI history and may force the reopening of some historical cases. Zev is joined by Craig Unger, who wrote "American Kompromat" and "House of Bush, House of Saud."  The two men piece together McGonigal's timeline in a gripping hour-long show which re-examines McGonigal's case history, like TWA-800, 911, Trump-Russia, and the theft of the Los Alamos nuclear secrets. Zev and Craig also look at McGonigal's FBI family tree and reveal some familiar and controversial names. ------------- A personal note from Zev: Dear friend:  Thank you for tuning into Narativ's podcast.
