OA825: Speech is Free, Witness Intimidation Will Cost Ya

Liz and Andrew tackle two stories today. First, they break down exactly what is going on with Trump’s various gag orders and his behavior in court in New York.

Then, it’s time for a classic deep dive about qui tam actions and how they’ve been hijacked with the help of possibly Trump’s worst judicial appointment and weaponized against women. It’s a story you need to know.

In the Patreon bonus, the duo compare and contrast legal ethics between George Santos and Donald Trump and come out in favor of… George Santos??!? You heard us!
