Listen to the episode and read the show notes
Topics of Discussion:
everybody, I just wanted to tell you how proud Thomas and I are of our
listeners. At least hundreds, possibly
thousands of you, made the effort to call your Senators and tell them that you
wanted to hear from witnesses during the impeachment trial. Obviously that vote came Friday night after
we recorded this show and we lost 51 to 49.
That sucks, and there is no spin that I can put on that, but I do want
to share something that Erica Goddard wrote in our Facebook community that
really helped me, helped remind us of our mission with this show.
says: “You told us after the 2018
elections why we had cause to be proud of the results. We fight the holding
actions, we get to November 2020, we keep the momentum of 2018 going.
we mourn, but Tomorrow, we look for the next holding action, the one that helps
us get to November. We build an America
we can be proud of again.
you despair, remember this community you have brought together. Remember those
you have helped teach. The legal profession
will feel the impact of your work as those studying law in this group pass the
Bar and move forward. Other professions will feel the impact of a better
educated populous who understand the world and the law.”
you Erica! Please do, folks have
continued to share in the Facebook group, on Twitter, elsewhere, send us an
email if you’re not a part of either of those groups and tell us when you go to
law school, when you graduate, when you pass the bar, when you get your jobs. We love those stories and I promise that
we’ll continue to do what Erica said. We
are looking for new and creative ways to try and keep breaking down the law for
you, and as the other side tries to break our institutions we will keep
standing up for them. Even when the answers
aren’t what we want to hear, I do still believe we make the world a little bit
better every time we make it a little better educated.
we have an example of that today, we’ve got a great interview with journalist
Marcy Wheeler, that’s about the Michaele Flynn case, it’s about the state of
the DOJ and her belief that people will face consequences. We’re gonna continue to break down the law
and identify what we need to do in order to move forward.
again, thanks to all of you, we’re gonna help continue to fight on.
