Buried Treasure: The Coup Plot that anticipated 1/6 (with Jonathan M. Katz)

Skullduggery's Buried Treasure returns as author Jonathan M. Katz joins to talk about his new book Gangsters of Capitalism: Smedley Butler, the Marines, and the Making and Breaking of America's Empire. Tracing a path from the first wave of U.S. overseas expansionism to the rise of fascism in the 1930s to the crises of democracy in our own time, Katz's book tells an urgent story about a formative era most Americans have never learned about, including a Jan. 6th 2021 plot-like attempt to overthrow the US Government in the 1930s exposed by Smedley himself to Congress.
