Tim Alberta is one of the very best writers/reporters in D.C. and also a pretty darn good radio guest. He was frequently on my old show in Rockford and still makes an appearance with Hugh Hewitt on a weekly basis.
Tim is in between jobs at the moment, but in a good way. He just left his spot at National Review and will be starting as national political corespondent at Politico Magazine in the next week or so.
Tim was visiting Hillsdale’s campus this week and I grabbed him for an interview. Below we talk about his final piece for NR, a look at how Republicans in the House and Senate will deal with a President Trump and if any branch will serve as a check on ideas that might not meet the definition of “conservative.”
