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: Long Shadow

    Goat Rodeo Presents: Long Shadow

    From Goat Rodeo, Long Lead, & Garrett Graff:
    Many Americans watched the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001 unfold right before our eyes. What happened on 9/11 and how it changed our world is the most important story of the modern age. It’s the hinge on which so much changed. But in the years since the history we've come to tell of that day is incomplete—and sometimes wrong.
    Hosted by journalist Garrett Graff, author of the bestselling book THE ONLY PLANE IN THE SKY: AN ORAL HISTORY OF 9/11, "Long Shadow" examines the questions that linger two decades later and the enduring mysteries that still surround 9/11, the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil. This is a different history of September 11th than you likely remember. But it’s one that will help you make sense of the world the attacks left behind.

    Lawfare Presents: After Trump, Obstruction and Pardons

    Lawfare Presents: After Trump, Obstruction and Pardons

    The pardon power was designed to be a tool for correcting wrongs. Any system of justice applied to a whole nation is going to have failures. A pardon is there to correct miscarriages of justice—and injustice. It was always believed that if a president abused his pardon authority, it would be so appalling to so many, at such a gut level, that the checks on the President would instantly kick in: He’s be impeached, forced to resign, voted out. Trump pushed this theory. And the results were worrisome—to say the least.

    Lawfare Presents: After Trump, Follow the Money

    Lawfare Presents: After Trump, Follow the Money

    In our first episode, we explore some of President Trump’s most brazen transgressions—the conflicts of interest, the self-dealing and those elusive tax returns. 
    In the run up to his inauguration, Trump created a sort of original sin when it came to his conflicts of interest, proclaiming that he is above any conflict of interest norms and regulation. Throughout his presidency, Trump continued to challenge any transparency when it came to his personal dealings and conflicts while in office.
    Virginia Heffernan explains how After Trump authors Bob Bauer and Jack Goldsmith propose reforming our laws and norms on a President’s financial ties and activities while in office.

    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?
    Subscribe by searching Made to Fail in your podcatcher, and visit www.madetofail.org to learn more.

Proud of our Democratic Representatives

Incredible integrity and honesty. Standing up for a strong democratic republic. No hyperbole, just the facts and their seriousness. If we had removed the president based on this damning evidence, it’s possible we could have avoided the coronavirus mismanagement.

Pure Propaganda

The purpose of Russiagate is to build up a perceived need for a national security state.

Nothing from the Mueller Report resulted in legal consequences for Donald Trump.

This certainly is no “spy thriller” as she puts it. Quite the contrary.

I gave an extra star because I laughed out loud a couple times which is more than most “comedy” podcasts.

won't send with one star ,
