In this excerpt from the CAFE Insider podcast, Preet Bharara and Joyce Vance discuss Hunter Biden’s expected guilty plea on two federal tax charges, and his agreement to enter a pretrial diversion agreement on a gun charge.
In the full episode, Preet and Joyce break down developments in the Donald Trump cases:
- The Washington Post report that the FBI and DOJ resisted opening an investigation into Trump’s involvement in January 6th;
- The “no-contact order” imposed in the Mar-a-Lago documents prosecution that bars Trump from discussing the case with the co-defendant and witnesses; and
- Trump’s interview with Fox News’s Bret Baier, in which he criticized the Mar-a-Lago documents indictment, denied that he improperly retained national security materials, and appeared to admit that he delayed complying with a subpoena to return documents.
