In this excerpt from the CAFE Insider podcast, Preet Bharara and Joyce Vance discuss the indictment of Rep. George Santos on 13 counts, including wire fraud, theft of public funds, and making false statements to Congress. They also assess the potential impact of the charges on his ability to continue serving in the House of Representatives.
In the full episode, Preet and Joyce break down:
- A federal jury’s verdict finding former President Donald Trump liable for sexual abuse and defamation in a lawsuit brought by writer E. Jean Carroll, and the jury’s determination that Trump is not liable for the alleged rape;
- Special counsel John Durham’s long-awaited report on his investigation into the origins of the FBI’s Russia probe; and
- A federal judge’s order striking down federal laws that prohibit individuals under 21 years of age from purchasing handguns.
