    Blurring Public and Private Conduct

    Blurring Public and Private Conduct

    On this week’s Versus Trump, Jason and Charlie discuss two new legal filings by the Trump DOJ that blur the line between the President as government official and the President as private citizen. In the first case, the government argues that the President's twitter feed is not an official public forum, so he can block people with whom he disagrees. In the second, the government argues that the President's denials that he sexually assaulted E. Jean Carroll were made in his official capacity as President. Are these inconsistent? What do they tell us about Trump's broader conduct?

    Easha's Back, To Talk Qualified Immunity and Police Reform

    Easha's Back, To Talk Qualified Immunity and Police Reform

    On this week’s Versus Trump, Easha Anand makes her triumphant return to talk qualified immunity and police reform. The trio talk about the proposal to reform qualified immunity and debate whether that will do much. They then break down other new legal innovations in the various proposals and ask: is it enough to create new grounds for people to sue? Or are other reforms more important?

One point...

Generally I enjoy and am informed by this podcast. However, you made a great fanfare about taking listeners’ questions, and addressed only one — and you outsourced that to your family. Smells a bit like Trump’s family.
