Dear Internet Friends,

Thank you for coming to the website. For some of you that took quite a bit of effort. Congratulations on getting here! But now that you’ve arrived, what can you expect from The Al Franken Website? Merchandising? Well, not yet!

You can read some posts or listen to the Podcast on this website. You will have opportunities to help with worthy causes – like filling the library of the new Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig Indian school in northern Minnesota. And helping us provide service dogs to veterans and others.

This week, Dahlia Lithwick of Slate, Ian Bassin of Protect Democracy and I discuss Trump’s sickening lurch toward autocracy post-impeachment with the cooperation of Bill Barr.

Oh. And subscribe to my new YouTube channel. All the podcasts are there, plus some videos from my pre-Senate career as well as my years in the Senate.

Enjoy the website!
