Marshall talks with us this week about conversation he had with former officials in President Obama's administration about decisions by President Trump's administration regarding copper nickel mining and mineral leases near the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.  He also told us more about the MN Department of Administration's ruling for St. Louis County to release MN CD8 candidate Pete Stauber's emails.  Marshall editorialized this issue this week, and asked that the county release the correspondence between Stauber and the National Republican Congressional Committee.
