On this week’s Versus Trump, Charlie and Jason cover a number of outstanding decisions and issues that they've missed over the last month. They begin with a discussion about a federal court's recent decision calling AG Barr's summary of the Mueller Report not credible, which led him to review the Mueller Report to see whether redactions were proper. They then also discuss a recent decision about Medicaid work requirements, the illegal appointment of the acting head of the USCIS, and then mention the new defamation lawsuits by Trump against the NY Times, CNN, and the Washington Post.
