CAFE Insider 3/29: Trump Trouble & Thomas Texts (with Dan Goldman)
03.29.2022 - By Stay Tuned with Preet
The January 6th Committee, John Eastman, and Ginni Thomas are making headlines this week.
This week on the CAFE Insider podcast, Dan Goldman guest co-hosts with Joyce Vance. Dan served as House Majority Counsel during the first impeachment of Donald Trump, and before that, he was an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York under Preet.
In this sample from the episode, Joyce and Dan break down a federal judge’s determination that Trump likely committed crimes in his efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results. They also discuss the impact this court decision might have on a potential criminal investigation into Trump and his allies.
In the full episode, Joyce and Dan discuss:
– The challenges associated with prosecuting Trump for his involvement in the insurrection;
– The texts Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, sent to Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, in which she pressed Meadows to help overturn the election results; and
– The reports that Jared Kushner will meet with the January 6th Committee later this week.
