//  1/17/19  //  In-Depth Analysis

On this week's episode of Versus Trump, Charlie, Jason, and Easha hit three topics: the mysterious case of the subpoena to a foreign corporation that may be related to the Mueller investigation; the nomination of William Barr as Attorney General; and the temporal nature of an emergency, as prompted by live listener feedback.  As usual, you can listen online below, and subscribe via this page with any podcast player or here in iTunes. 

The trio start by quickly discussing the mysterious subpoena case, and Easha gives us inside baseball on the usual process for securing a stay at the Supreme Court. The trio then comment quickly on Barr's nomination and his bizarre, unsolicited memo that reveals some of his thoughts about the Muller investigation. Finally, listener Ross Harrow (Jason's brother) comes into the Versus Trump studio and asks whether it's plausible that emergencies can really take a very long time to solve.

I catalog the legal attacks to come from the Trump team. None of his strategies have any chance of changing the outcome.

We have every confidence in state election officials to finish counting all of our votes as best they know how—and we encourage all of our fellow citizens to wait until they have done so before jumping to conclusions.
