Preet and Joyce are joined by Barb McQuade, the former U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan, for part two of a discussion about the expected indictment of former President Donald Trump by the Manhattan DA’s office. They discuss the House GOP’s calls on Bragg to testify before Congress, the issues that might arise when a jury is empaneled, and the potential precedent that a Trump indictment would establish.

What’s going on here?
