In this episode we discuss:

Andrew Napolitano is a former judge who served on the New Jersey Superior Court from 1987 to 1995. He is also a legal analyst and commentator known for appearing on Fox News and his syndicated column. Napolitano has written several books on legal and political topics, including “Constitutional Chaos: What Happens When the Government Breaks Its Own Laws” and “The Constitution in Exile: How the Federal Government Has Seized Power by Rewriting the Supreme Law of the Land.”

In this episode, Susan and Napolitano delve into the technical details and legal aspects of the Donald Trump indictment, including potential testimonies from Allen Weisselberg and Michael Cohen and discuss the perceived unpopularity of the previous decision of DA Bragg not to indict the president when first offered. The duo also speculates on the political ramifications for Trump, the implications of having him take the stand, and how it could affect the election and electability of any Republican facing President Biden. The episode also touches on Trump’s ego, his decision to keep classified documents at Mar A Lago, and the prosecution’s treatment of the January 6th defendants. The episode concludes by briefly discussing the Alex Murdaugh case and Ukrainian War.
