On April 18th 2019, the Justice Department released the redacted Mueller Report to the public. The 448 page document details a story that has captured America's attention. From Russian plots to interfere in our election to constitutional questions of executive power, the Mueller Report is potentially one of the most important and consequential documents of our time. But there's a problem. Very few people have read it.
There is still so much confusion about the Report. What it says, who it implicates, and what it means for our country. At Lawfare, we are distilling the report into a multi part audio narrative series, telling you the story of what is in this document, the story Mueller wants you to understand.
We are grateful to the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and the Democracy Fund for their support for this project.

    Goat Rodeo Presents: Made to Fail

    Goat Rodeo Presents: Made to Fail

    From Goat Rodeo, a new limited audio series: Made to Fail
    From health care, to unemployment insurance, to exercising the right to vote, COVID-19 has affected every part of American life. Sky-high unemployment. Vulnerable elections. Unrest in American cities. But what’s happening in our country is something much bigger than a pandemic. Something that’s been in the works for a long, long, time. The pandemic has pulled back the curtain on the conservative policies that time and time again, have failed the people they were supposed to protect.
    Made to Fail travels the country to tell the story of how conservative ideology has gutted the safety net, corrupted our institutions, and made government unaccountable to the people. As we confront an unprecedented era of economic uncertainty, amidst a health crisis and a national reckoning on race, the question is…how can we find the way out?

    the Impeachment: Day 10

    the Impeachment: Day 10

    It’s January 31, 2020. It’s the 10th day of the impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump. I’m Margaret Taylor, Senior Editor at Lawfare. Today, Senators listened to the arguments of the parties, and then voted 49-51 not to call new witnesses or subpoena new documents. Republican Senators Susan Collins and Mitt Romney voted with Democrats, but the vote was nonetheless unsuccessful. 
    Senate leadership then offered a new procedural resolution to govern how the trial would conclude over the coming days. Closing statements from the parties will occur at 11am on Monday, and a final vote on the articles of impeachment will occur at 4pm on Wednesday.  
    Democrats offered 4 amendments to the resolution. The first was an amendment to subpoena acting white house chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, former National Security Adviser John Bolton, Michael Duffey, and David Blair, as well as documents from the White House, the Office of Management and Budget, the Department of Defense, and the Department of State. The second was to subpoena just John Bolton. The third was to subpoena Bolton and allow for one day for a deposition and one day for live testimony. The fourth and final amendment was to require the Chief Justice to rule on motions to subpoena witnesses and documents, and to rule on any assertions of privilege. On all four amendments, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell moved to table--or defeat--them, and all were defeated. Thereater, the resolution setting out the path for resolution of the trial passed on a 53-47 party line vote.
    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell then asked for unanimous consent to include statements of Senators explaining their votes in the Congressional record next week, along with a full record of the Senate’s proceedings and handling of the impeachment proceedings. The Senate then agreed, by unanimous consent, to allow Senators to speak for up to 10 minutes each on Monday. 
    This is The Impeachment, Episode 10. The Senate votes not to subpoena witnesses or documents, and charts a path forward to end the impeachment trial.

Chagrined independent ,

As with ‘The Report’ this pod a great resource

If you don’t have the time or the stomach to sit through the live coverage this pod is ideal for distilling the most important or impactful parts of the cases into manageable chunks that can be listened to as you multi task. Many thanks to the Lawfare crew for doing the hard work we don’t want to.

Should be mandatory listening for anyone in UK or US

This podcast transforms a dry technical document into an easy-to-understand drama format, accurately based on The Mueller Report. It expertly covers the timeline from 2014 and explains the links behind the 2016 US presidential election and the UK’s referendum on leaving the EU. If you care in any way at all about the US or UK you should listen to this. It doesn’t matter if you’re democrat or republican, leave or remain; whatever your beliefs this tells the story of how democracy can be, and was stolen. “Can we ever have a free and fair election again?”, is the only question that should be on everyone’s lips.

Fantastic! Law and Order meets Game of Thrones

This is one of the best podcasts I have listened to in quite a while! It is brilliantly produced and I love the way that it takes complex legal content and delivers it like a spy thriller!

The only negative I have is that I come away from every episode absolutely aghast at how the current president is still in office!
