Bill Maher will welcome a Trump confidante, a former NSA director and CIA chief, a former Republican senator and an immigration activist on Friday’s Real Time.

It’s been yet another eventful week in the world of politics, which Bill Maher will cover with his roundtable panel on this week’s Real Time tonight. As has been the case for the past two episodes, the host will kickoff the episode by interviewing a supporter of President Trump at the beginning of the program, following lively exchanges with Jeffrey Lord and Matt Schlapp.

This week’s top-of-the-show guest will be the controversial political strategist Roger Stone, who was reportedly instrumental in getting Trump to run for president. However, he was fired from the campaign in the midst of the Republican primary for being a “publicity seeker.” He was later banned from appearing on CNN and MSNBC for calling fellow commentators a “fat negro” and “an entitled diva bitch” on Twitter, and has admitted to having contact with DNC hacker Guccifer 2.0 and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to obtain information about Hillary Clinton.

The panel will consist of former Republican Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, now a CNN commentator who has at times been critical of Trump’s tweets, former NSA director and CIA chief Michael Hayden and political activist Neera Tanden, president and CEO of the liberal think tank Center for American Progress and a former Clinton adviser.

More from Real Time

Hayden made headlines last year during his last Real Time visit when he told Maher that the military may refuse Trump’s orders if they violated international law, such as his calls to kill the family members of terrorists. More recently, he’s been critical of Rep. Devin Nunes’ handling of the Russian election interference probe, said that Trump’s travel ban would make us less safe, and referred to the president as Moscow’s “useful fool.” Lastly, journalist Jose Antonio Vargas, arguably the country’s most famous illegal immigrant, will serve as the mid-show interview guest.

Every new episode of Real Time is made available to stream live via HBO GO. Select clips can also be seen on the show’s YouTube page, where the night’s “Overtime” segment is posted shortly after the episode airs.
