This week on CAFE Insider, Preet Bharara and Joyce Vance discuss Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s investigation into former President Donald Trump’s involvement in a 2016 hush money payment to Stormy Daniels. In this sample from the show, Preet and Joyce refine their thoughts on the strength of the potential criminal charges and Trump’s possible defenses to the charges.
In the full episode, Preet and Joyce break down the prosecutorial discretion considerations that come into play when deciding whether to charge a former president, and Bragg’s response to House GOP calls on him to testify before Congress.
