They also break down the mechanisms for compelling Congressional testimony and for holding someone accountable for defying a subpoena.
In the full episode, Preet and Joyce discuss the latest developments regarding reproductive rights, including the Department of Justice’s emergency request to block Texas’s restrictive abortion law, and the forthcoming Supreme Court case where the state of Mississippi has asked the Court to overturn Roe v. Wade.
