    Jack | Episode 78 | Loco Motions

    *We made a change to where the breaking news appears in the episode.

    Judge Aileen Cannon continues to complain– after much deliberation– about having to grant DoJ’s motions.

    Trump’s lawyers deceive the court in their motion to dismiss by mischaracterizing the language in the Mar-a-Lago search warrant. Hearings on that got heated.

    DoJ files a motion to modify Trump’s bail conditions.

    Chief judge for the D .C. District Court denied Walt Nauta's overly broad bid to release all grand jury matters related to the investigation to the Florida court.

    Plus listener questions and more.

IoB. ,

Sending Dana good healing …

Vibes. Feel better you amazing person. And sending AG my thanks for making my morning with your “lightning vest” laughter.
Kept me smiling all day.

specialacct ,

Bumper tags and hot model possums!

I am a first time writer to y’all I wanted first to tell you how much you have made my life a better place

As to hot model possums I have presented with this file a photo of a hot model possum from Australia.

As to bumper stickers, I had a bumper sticker in the early 2000s,outside of Houston Texas. I was at a horse show. It simply said it’s a sad day when a lesbian can’t vote for a bush. They told me if I didn’t remove the bumper sticker I would be asked to leave.

Thanks for all the good that you do,
Adele Penninngton,
oh yeah, I’ll put in some pet tax!
Please forgive my punctuation as I only know them as sprinkles of beauty. And dyslexia is no help there

PhillJay ,

News from a humane POV

Appreciate the hot takes, spicy coverage, thoughtful interviews, and loyal listeners. Solid sources and journalism. Maybe a little more progressive than I am but enjoy being challenged. Also really appreciate AG and DG’s humility and growth mindset.
