    A Former US Attorney on How Trump Politicized the DOJ

    A Former US Attorney on How Trump Politicized the DOJ

    Jon is joined by Geoffrey Berman, a former US attorney from the Southern District of New York—and author of the new book Holding the Line: Inside the Nation’s Preeminent US Attorney’s Office and Its Battle with the Trump Justice Department. They dig into how Bill Barr tried to have Berman fired, why nailing down powerful guys like Trump is so hard, and whether better guardrails could protect our democracy. Berman also happened to be Jon’s neighbor growing up in New Jersey, so they reminisce about old neighborhood gossip. Plus, writers Jay Jurden and Tocarra Mallard trash-talk Ron DeSantis and Brett Favre, who fully deserve it.

They also take a stroll down memory lane to the Obama White House, reminiscing about the good old days of government website crashes and that time a gaping hole opened in the bottom of the ocean.

    Has America Learned Anything From Its Biggest Disasters? Not Really.

    Jon talks to Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Sheri Fink, whose book Five Days at Memorial is the basis for the Apple TV+ series of the same name. They discuss why our healthcare system is always ill-equipped for disasters—and whether there’s something else coming our way that we should panic about. Writers Robby Slowik and Maria Randazzo also stop by to talk about the Trump raid, the oddest menu items at Mar-a-Lago, and the scourge of lanternflies

    Basketball legend and coach Dawn Staley is here with the latest on Brittney Griner—one of the best players in the WNBA—who has been detained in Russia since February after officials allegedly found cannabis oil in her luggage. Dawn and Jon break down the financial inequalities of the WNBA, how we can keep players from becoming political pawns, and what needs to happen to get Griner home.

nurse activist ,

Southern district

Soo, this guy talks about going after cases they can make a case. Again Taibbi wrote a book about this. They are so frightened to lose against the big guns they settle for a paltry fine and no one hats prosecuted. Didn’t bring up the fact that Mayor Rudy got these guys to drop a case against Trump princess Also they seem to inordinately go after Democrats and Repugs and business people are left alone ie the banking felonies of 2008
