In this sample from the CAFE Insider podcast, Preet and Anne break down whether President Trump committed a crime when, in an hour-long phone call over the weekend, he pressured Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to “find” the votes necessary to flip the election in his favor.
In the full episode, Preet and Anne discuss Republican Senators’ last-ditch effort to subvert the election results in Congress and Vice President Pence’s role in counting the electoral ballots.
