    Barr Talks to House Select Committee with No Leaks: Two Important Takeaways from this Revelation

    Barr Talks to House Select Committee with No Leaks: Two Important Takeaways from this Revelation

    Representative Bennie Thompson, the Chairman of the House select committee investigating the insurrection, disclosed yesterday that the committee has been speaking with former Attorney General Bill Barr.
    Importantly, there had ben no reporting - no leaks - of this fact prior to Rep. Thompson's disclosure.

    What lessons can we take away from the fact that a congressional committee can conduct a high-stakes, high-pressure investigation without any leaks?

    And are there parallels that can be draw between the leak-free nature of the January 6 panel's investigation and any investigations that may be up and running in the Department of Justice?

    AG Garland Signals DOJ Will hold the "Powerless & Powerful" Accountable for Crimes of January 6

    AG Garland Signals DOJ Will hold the "Powerless & Powerful" Accountable for Crimes of January 6

    Attorney General Merrick Garland spoke directly and at length about the investigation into the attempted overthrow of our democracy on January 6. Garland pointedly said the Department of Justice will hold accountable all January 6 perpetrators "at any level", whether they were present at the Capitol" on January 6 or not.

    AG Garland also invoked the Watergate scandal and said that, on the accountability front, there will not be one set of rules and norms for "the powerful and one for the powerless."

    Everything AG Garland said signals that the DOJ will hold the powerful accountable, not just the relatively powerless foot soldiers of the insurrection.

    2021: The Year of Donald Trump's Big Lie. 2022 Will be the Year of The Big Truth.

    2021: The Year of Donald Trump's Big Lie. 2022 Will be the Year of The Big Truth.

    2021 started with Donald Trump, on January 6, directing his supporters to go to the US Capitol and "stop" the certification of the election's results. Of course, he told them to stop the "steal", which provides definitive proof that Trump was lying to inspire and incite the attack, as his own administration officials and agencies said the election was not stolen.

    But if 2021 was the year of The Big Lie, 2022 will prove to be the year of The Big Truth. The House select committee investigating the Capitol attack has promised public hearings in early 2022. Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson has also indicated that the committee is considering criminal referrals for Trump and company. Moreover, the Department of Justice continues to investigate, indict and prosecute the foot soldiers of the insurrection, in what should be viewed as phase one of the Capitol attack investigation. Indeed, DOJ is following the standard prosecutorial blueprint in large-scale gang or RICO investigations: start at the bottom and work your way up the criminal ladder.

    Here's why these two things - the House select committee's investigation and criminal referrals, and the DOJ's criminal investigation of the insurrection - will converge to make 2022 the year of accountability. Because justice matters.

    Trump's Attempt to Enlist Assistance of Supreme Court to Hide Evidence from House Select Committee

    Trump's Attempt to Enlist Assistance of Supreme Court to Hide Evidence from House Select Committee

    Donald Trump is famous/infamous for using the courts for his own nefarious purposes - bringing baseless lawsuits to weaponize the delay in the court system and run out the clock. After losing in both the trial and appellate courts, Trump is now seeking to enlist the Supreme Court in his attempt to hide from the House select committee information in the possession of the National Archives regarding his conduct in connection with the January 6 attack on the US Capitol.

    Given that Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor recently used the work "stench" to describe the politicization of the Supreme Court, we now await word on whether the Supreme Court will accept review of Trump's latest appeal, thereby giving Trump the delay he seeks and adding to the court's political "stench," or reject Trump's appeal and allow Congress to fully investigate the attack on American democracy so it can put legislative fixes in place to prevent the next attack from succeeding.

    The Law's Perception Problem; When Will Justice Come for Meadows, Giuliani, Clark, Trump & Others

    The Law's Perception Problem; When Will Justice Come for Meadows, Giuliani, Clark, Trump & Others

    It seems like justice is suspended in amber these days, unable to move one way or the other. If we look at some of the timeframes we've been waiting for justice - 15 days, 53 days, 244 days - it's pretty apparent that the law presently has a perception problem. This video discusses how long the American people have been made to wait for justice and how the wait impacts the perception of the law.

Wisdom & Passion

Thank you, Glenn, for the laser thinking you offer in each and every podcast…I eagerly look for when you’ve posted something so I can try to make sense of what’s happening on the Rule of Law landscape. Stay strong & keep talking please!

Madzen ,

Is the podcast not daily ?

I really enjoy Glenn’s insights but haven’t seen anything since January 5…? I see there are videos on YouTube but don’t we get those on the podcast daily too? Thanks

KrisD65 ,

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!
