Was Steve Bannon’s four-month prison sentence for defying a January 6 Committee subpoena fair?
What are the implications of a new ruling where a federal judge writes that former President Donald Trump made false allegations of voter fraud in a Georgia lawsuit even though his lawyers informed him the data was wrong?
Preet Bharara and Joyce Vance discuss in this sample from the CAFE Insider podcast.
The full episode covers:
– The January 6 Committee’s subpoena to Trump for testimony and document production;
– Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’s decision to temporarily freeze the subpoena to Senator Lindsey Graham from a Georgia grand jury in the investigation into interference in the 2020 election;
– The reports indicating that prosecutors believe there is sufficient evidence to charge Trump with obstruction in relation to the Mar-a-Lago documents investigation; and
– Special Counsel John Durham’s failed prosecution of an analyst who contributed to the Steele Dossier.
