The January 6th Committee is back in action this week. In this sample from the CAFE Insider podcast, Preet Bharara breaks down the Committee’s progress with Dan Goldman, who served as lead House counsel in the first impeachment of Donald Trump and is now running for Congress in New York. Preet and Dan also react to reports that DOJ is feeling additional pressure to escalate its investigation into Trump following Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony before the Committee.
In the full episode, Preet and Joyce discuss:
- The impact of former White House Counsel Pat Cipollone’s testimony before the January 6th Committee;
- The surprising news that Steve Bannon has also agreed to testify before the Committee;
- The subpoenas issued to some of Trump’s closest allies, including Rudy Giuliani and Lindsey Graham, by the District Attorney of Fulton County, Georgia.
