    CAFE Insider Sample 1/18: Seditious Conspiracy & Siddiqui

    CAFE Insider Sample 1/18: Seditious Conspiracy & Siddiqui

    The Texas synagogue hostage situation, Aafia Siddiqui’s conviction, seditious conspiracy charges against the Oath Keepers, House minority leader Kevin McCarthy, and Rep. Matt Gaetz are making headlines this week. 

    In this sample from the CAFE Insider podcast, Preet and Joyce discuss the FBI’s response to the hostage situation and the demand made by the hostage-taker that Pakistani neuroscientist Aafia Siddiqui be released from federal prison, where she is serving an 86-year sentence for attempts to murder American military and FBI officials. Preet oversaw Siddiqui’s 2010 prosecution as the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York.

    In the full episode, Preet and Joyce break down: 

    – the first seditious conspiracy charges brought by federal prosecutors stemming from the January 6th attack against the leader and members of the Oath Keepers; 
    – House minority leader Kevin McCarthy’s refusal to comply with the January 6th committee’s request to be interviewed; and 
    – Rep. Matt Gaetz’s ex-girlfriend’s reported testimony before a federal grand jury as part of an ongoing sex crimes investigation into the congressman.

    Convicting Ahmaud Arbery’s Killers (with ADA Linda Dunikoski)

    Linda Dunikoski, the Senior Assistant District Attorney in the Cobb County DA’s Office who served as the lead prosecutor in the trial of the three men who murdered Ahmaud Arbery, speaks with Preet about the case. 
    Dunikoski discusses several of her key strategic choices, including why she decided not to emphasize Arbery’s race to the jury. She also talks about her relationship to the Arbery family and her reaction when defense counsel used the phrase “long-dirty toenails” to describe Arbery’s appearance the day he was killed. 
    Preet concludes the episode with his remembrance of Oscar-winning actor and director Sidney Poitier, who passed away on January 6th at the age of 94.

Preet’s a treat

This is an excellent podcast: interviews with bright people tackling difficult issues. The interviewees are often unfamiliar to the UK listener (or at least to this listener) but well worth hearing. Preet is an engaging host, ex-prosecutor and lead for the Southern District of New York whose career has included trials of major financial and organised criminals. Preet approaches US law and politics from a consistently ethical and informed standpoint. He’s no fan of Mr Trump but he presents the complex entanglements of the White House and the 2020 election from an informed and analytic perspective. No hysteria or conspiracy theories - cool and clever instead. Thanks Preet.
