    Donald Trump's first criminal trial (of four criminal trials) started in earnest on Monday with opening statements and it turned out to be something of a lopsided affair. Glenn reviews some of the points made by the prosecution and some of the . . . curious arguments offered by Donald Trump's defense attorney.

    Glenn discusses the three goals of a prosecution's opening statement and the three goals of a defense opening statement. There are always lots of tactical challenges for both the prosecutors and the defense attorneys. But there is one challenge in particular that Trump's attorney's will face, and it's a choice that may end up alienating the jurors,

    Prosecutors File Sandoval Notice of Misconduct They'll Use if Trump Testifies

    Now 12 jurors and six alternates have already been qualified to serve on the Trump jury in the 2016 election interference trial in New York. In another development, the prosecutors just filed what's called "Sandoval Notice" detailing 13 instances of uncharged misconduct they intend to use on cross-examination of Trump in the (unlikely) event he decides to testify at trial. Glenn gives us highlights of the 13 instances of Trump's past misconduct in this new court filing.

    Judge Merchan's Unusual Jury Selection Process

    Judge Merchan's Unusual Jury Selection Process

    The jury has been selected in a New York courtroom to judge the guilt or innocence of a former president of the United States. This is an important step in the direction of fulfilling the long-dormant American promise that no one is above the law. Glenn does a deep dive into several jury issues, including Judge Juan Merchan's unusual process of letting jurors self-identify as unable to be fair and dismissing them with no follow-up questions. And Glenn discusses the fact that two of the jurors are attorneys. He says this is a good thing because attorneys know the law and they can be a big asset in making sure all jurists listen to the facts and follow the judges instructions.

    New York Prosecutors Ask Judge Merchan to Hold Trump in Criminal Contempt.

    New York Prosecutors Ask Judge Merchan to Hold Trump in Criminal Contempt.

    Donald Trump has violated the gag order imposed by Judge Merchan in his New York criminal prosecution. Trump has repeatedly violated the gag order - talking about and endangering the witnesses in the case.

    Now NY District Attorney Alvin Bragg's prosecutors have filed a motion formally asking Judge Merchan to hold Trump in criminal contempt and fine him. However, they are also asking the judge to put Trump on notice that any future violations will land him in jail for up to 30 days, the maximum allowed for each act of contempt.

    Recap of Trump's First Day at His New York Criminal Trial

    Recap of Trump's First Day at His New York Criminal Trial

    Today, Donald Trump went from an aspiring "day-one dictator" to a "day-one defendant" at his big 2016 election interference trial in New York. Just days ago, Trump told his supporters that he wanted "all hell to break loose on Monday." But given the anti-Trump protests outside the courthouse today, it looked like all accountability was breaking loose.

    Glenn takes on three of the legal developments at day one of Trump's New York trial.

Facts matter!

Glenn talks about current legal court filings, and gives us a clear, fact based view on current events. Happening in Trumps many court cases. His professional opinion is great to have in the time of conspiracy theories crazy social media propaganda. Love Glenn, one of my weekly favorites!

Reading articles

I love your insights and expertise. It feels like you’ve shifted to reading articles written by others. What I loved was hearing from you and it feels strange to me to have such an expert reading someone else’s opinion.

StrongSincere ,

LOVE YOUR SHOW and audio!

Hey Glenn! I absolutely love your show and the comfort your podcast brings me. There are times I question whether or not our justice system is ever going to hold Donald Trump accountable, and your podcast pulls me back from the brink of despair. Thank you so much for that dear friend. And your audio has improved dramatically and sounds fantastic! Thank you for everything Glenn. You’re wonderful and so much appreciated.
