In this excerpt from the CAFE Insider podcast, Preet Bharara and Joyce Vance break down the Supreme Court’s unanimous ruling that states cannot disqualify former President Donald Trump from the ballot for his role in the January 6 insurrection and seeking to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

In the full episode, Preet and Joyce further discuss the Supreme Court’s decision, including Justice Clarence Thomas’s decision not to recuse himself from the matter and speculation that Justice Sonia Sotomayor initially planned to dissent from the ruling. They also analyze the Court’s decision to grant review of Trump’s immunity defense in the election subversion criminal prosecution and Trump’s increasingly busy trial calendar in the lead-up to the November election.
