On this week's 100th episode of Versus Trump, Charlie, Easha, and Jason offer a few quick hits and then have a discussion about the effect of litigation against the President personally and against the Administration. As usual, you can listen online below, and subscribe via this page with any podcast player or here in iTunes. 

Charlie begins with a quick hit on the Devin Nunes defamation lawsuit (which Charlie says "reads like it's written by a crazy person"), and Easha mentions a new case by a Russian oligarch who claims he shouldn't be sanctioned by the U.S. Jason then highlights recent developments in the case of Summer Zervos, who was allegedly sexually harassed by the President before he took office, and a case about the Emoluments Clauses. This leads to a big picture discussion of where've been and where we're going.

Thanks to Take Care for hosting us for 100 episodes, to We Edit Podcasts for editing most of the 100, and, most of all, to our listeners for tuning each week. We look forward to many more—but not too, too many, to be honest. This is a podcast that we hope does not go on forever.

Can Congress Investigate Whether the President Has Conflicts of Interest, is Compromised by Russia, or Has Violated the Law?

7/29/19  //  In-Depth Analysis

The President's lawyers are urging courts to hold that Congress’s oversight and regulatory authorities simply don't extend to investigating the wrongdoing, foreign influence over, and possible conflicts of interest of, the President of the United States. That's wrong.

Requiem for a Lone Star Bail-in

7/25/19  //  In-Depth Analysis

The three-judge district court overseeing the Texas redistricting litigation has held that Texas should not be 'bailed-in' under Section 3(c) of the Voting Rights Act. That's a very worrisome development. Here's why.

7/23/19  //  Commentary

Let's not have unrealistic expectations of Mueller dropping bombshells. But if Congress is going to hold hearings, it should ask these questions.
