    More Evidence of Trump's Election Conspiracy; Meadows Changes his Tune, Cooperates with House Committee

    More Evidence of Trump's Election Conspiracy; Meadows Changes his Tune, Cooperates with House Committee

    Two big stories just broke on the legal front: according to reporting in the Guardian, Trump called his "lieutenants" at the Willard Hotel shortly before the attack on the Capitol, expressed his concern that Mike Pence was not coming through for him, and asked how else they could block the certification of Joe Biden's election win. This is yet additional evidence of Trump participation in a robust conspiracy to corruptly overturn the election results.

    In a second story, the New York Times reported that Mark Meadows has done an abrupt about face and is now cooperating with the House select committee investigating the Capitol attack. This change of heart by Meadows is a tribute to the power of prosecution. With Steve Bannon being criminally prosecuted for HIS contempt of Congress, Meadows likely did not want to suffer the same fate and decided to cooperate with Congress.

    Bannon's Grift, Mark Meadows' Contempt of Congress & Trump's Friends & Family Burner Phone Plan

    Bannon's Grift, Mark Meadows' Contempt of Congress & Trump's Friends & Family Burner Phone Plan

    In recent days there has been reporting about attempts by Bannon's defense attorneys to convince a judge to allow them to distribute to the public the discovery given over by the prosecutors in Bannon's criminal case for contempt of Congress. This video discusses the common practice of courts to issue protective orders regarding discovery in criminal cases and what Steve Bannon is really trying to accomplish by objecting to these standard procedures.

    Additional reporting has revealed that one of the organizers of the January 6 "Stop the Steal" rally insisted on having hard-to-trace "burner phones" to communicate with Trump family members, aides and former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. This video also discusses the implications of these revelations.

    NY Prosecutors Investigating Yet More Trump Financial Crimes; When Will the Indictments Come?

    NY Prosecutors Investigating Yet More Trump Financial Crimes; When Will the Indictments Come?

    The Washington Post reported that the Manhattan District Attorney's Office is now investigating Donald Trump's manipulation of property values, presumably to dodge tax liability. Recently released city property and tax records reveal that Trump claimed for one purpose that his building at 40 Wall Street was worth $527 million and then turned around and, for tax purposes, reported that the same building was worth only $16.7 million. This is Trump taking a page out of the book Tax Fraud for Dummies.

    This video also discusses Attorney General Merrick Garland's comments at Monday's ceremony for the new United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Damian Williams. AG Garland emphasized the importance of holding accountable those who engage in domestic violent extremism which threatens to undermine our democratic institutions.

    While We Must Accept the Rittenhouse Jury's Not Guilty Verdict, We have Much to Learn & Miles to Go

    While We Must Accept the Rittenhouse Jury's Not Guilty Verdict, We have Much to Learn & Miles to Go

    A Wisconsin jury found Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty of all charges for shooting three individuals, killing two. This video discusses the possible reasons for the verdict and some of the lessons we should learn from the nature of self-defense laws and the dangers posed by our country's determination to worship at the altar on unrestricted gun access.

    Link below for my MSNBC Daily opinion piece on the Rittenhouse verdict:

    Why Mark Meadows Must Now be Indicted for Contempt of Congress (just as happened to Steve Bannon)

    Why Mark Meadows Must Now be Indicted for Contempt of Congress (just as happened to Steve Bannon)

    On the exact same day Steve Bannon was criminally indicted for contempt of Congress, Mark Meadows refused to appear in violation of a congressional subpoena, thereby committing the crime of . . . contempt of Congress. Congress must now vote to hold Meadows in contempt and refer him for prosecution.

    This video reviews the way subpoenas work, how one goes about LAWFULLY asserting a privilege (spoiler alert - not by flat out refusing to appear), and why Meadows' attorney's claim that "the matter of executive privilege must be litigated in court" is NOT how it works.

    Accordingly, just as was the case with Bannon, we are now on Mark Meadows Indictment Watch.

    Steve Bannon Indicted. What's next: from Monday's Court Appearance to Plea Negations to Trial & More

    Steve Bannon Indicted. What's next: from Monday's Court Appearance to Plea Negations to Trial & More

    A federal grand jury indicted Steve Bannon on two criminal contempt of Congress charges. Here is what to expect moving forward, from Monday's presentment in court to possible plea nogotiaons with prosecutors to trial and sentencing.

    This video also discusses why it took 22 days for the DC US Attorney's Office to indict Bannon. Plus, with Mark Meadows committing the very same crime today by refusing to appear on a congressional subpoena, might he face the same fate as Bannon?

    All in all, today was a good day for justice.

Love your podcast.

Is there any chance you can post more rather than just one a week? I like the short length of the podcasts, just wish there were more!

Cold in the north ,

Justice does indeed matter

Enjoy listening to your podcasts. And unfortunately there’s a whole other society of forgotten people who continue to live without justice. After listening to Kirschner’s podcast check out notesfromthepen.com
