In this sample from the CAFE Insider podcast, Preet Bharara and Joyce Vance break down the January 6th Committee’s vote to subpoena former President Donald Trump to testify. What is the likelihood that Trump complies with the subpoena? Why did the Committee wait until now to subpoena Trump? And why didn’t the Committee also subpoena former Vice President Mike Pence?

In the full episode, Preet and Joyce discuss:

  • The new evidence presented at the Committee’s final public hearing, including video footage of congressional leaders scrambling to respond to the attack and evidence of Trump’s pre-Election Day plan to declare victory on election night 2020;
  • The Department of Justice’s sentencing recommendation for Steve Bannon’s contempt of Congress conviction;
  • The Supreme Court’s rejection of Trump’s request that the justices intervene in the Mar-a-Lago documents case; and
  • The Department of Justice’s appeal of the appointment of the Mar-a-Lago special master.
