PHILADELPHIA (1210 WPHT)- U.S. Attorney Bill McSwain is not a fan of Philadelphia D.A. Larry Krasner.

“Everything Krasner is driven by, in my opinion, a radical political ideology,” said McSwain, in an interview with The Dom Giordano Program. “It’s not based on facts. It’s not based on evidence. It’s not based on a concern for public safety.”

McSwain said he drew this conclusion from his exploration of the murder of Daniel Faulkner.

“I took a deep-dive into the Mumia case and was trying to figure out, ‘What is it he’s actually doing? What is the end game,’” said McSwain.  “I think that the endgame is [Krasner> wants to see Mumia released.

“Every time he has a chance to defend the conviction...for killing Daniel Faulkner, he takes a dive,” McSwain explained.

McSwain offered his theory of what Krasner is trying to do for Mumia.

“He’s trying to set it up where Mumia will be awarded a new trial and then he’ll just throw his hands up in the air and say, ‘Well, how can I retry this guy when it’s 40 years later,’” McSwain said. “After he says that, there’s no way to keep him in prison and he’ll walk out.”

McSwain said Krasner is driven by one particular goal.

“He wants to both let everybody out of prison and not let anybody else in prison,” said McSwain.

Scott Adams | Creator of Dilbert

Legendary creator of the Dilbert comic, Scott Adams, joins the Dom Giordano Program to discuss his new book Loserthink: How Untrained Brains Are Ruining America. Dom led off the interview by asking Adams about the headlines he made earlier this week, in which he said that the typos by Trump while tweeting prove that he tweets himself, which lends credit to his authenticity. Adams explains the rash of negativity he was faced with after alluding that he supports President Trump, telling Dom that he lost friends because of his support for the president. Also, Adams compares the differences between Dilbert and another cult classic, The Office, and he discusses the inspiration for the character with the curly tie.
