On a new episode of Versus Trump, Easha and Charlie take a quick gander at Donald Trump's proposal to seek the death penalty for drug dealers. As usual, you can listen online below, and subscribe via this page with any podcast player or here in iTunes.

For starters, Easha and Charlie walk through what the Constitution has to say about imposing the death penalty (hint: surprisingly little). They then explain the concepts of felony murder and conspiracy, two theories under which a drug dealer might be found guilty of murder. Charlie gives a quick overview of what the federal death penalty statute already authorizes, and they conclude by deciding that the President probably didn't mean what he said and, in any event, the specter of someone being executed merely for selling opioids would probably lead to the Supreme Court stepping in.
