In this sample from the CAFE Insider podcast, Preet Bharara and Joyce Vance discuss the decision by a New Mexico District Attorney to seek involuntary manslaughter charges against actor Alec Baldwin for allegedly shooting and killing a cinematographer on the set of the movie Rust in 2021.
In the full episode, Preet and Joyce discuss:
- The search conducted by FBI investigators of President Joe Biden’s home in Wilmington, Delaware, which led to the discovery of additional documents with classified markings;
- The forthcoming Republican-led House investigations into the Biden administration, including the classified documents matter, the alleged politicization of the Justice Department, and a potential impeachment inquiry into Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas; and
- The announcement by the Supreme Court that its internal investigation failed to identify who leaked the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization draft opinion, which overturned Roe v. Wade.
