In this sample from the CAFE Insider podcast, Preet Bharara and Joyce Vance break down former President Donald Trump’s court filing challenging the FBI’s Mar-a-Lago search. Why does Trump take different positions in court than he does in public? And do Trump’s legal arguments in the motion hold water or are they tailored for politics and public opinion?
In the full episode, Preet and Joyce discuss:
- The strength of Trump’s challenges to the search warrant on Fourth Amendment grounds;
- The likelihood that the court grants Trump’s request to appoint a special master to review the documents seized from Mar-a-Lago;
- The debate over whether the judge should unseal a redacted version of the search warrant affidavit over DOJ’s opposition; and
- Senator Lindsey Graham’s challenge of a subpoena to testify before a Georgia grand jury that is investigating alleged interference in the 2020 election.
