On today’s show, Mitchell Epner returns to help Andrew and Liz break down two New York stories: first, the allegations surrounding Trump’s media company that produces “Truth Social,” and second, E. Jean Carroll’s efforts to amend her pending defamation lawsuit against Donald Trump to add claims related to Trump’s comments at the CNN “Town Social” in light of the prior verdict.
Oh, and the “Truth Social” story involves Devin Nunes because of course it does.
Liz and Andrew break down the latest developments in Fulton County, GA; some truly terrible takes on the E. Jean Carroll verdict by Alan Dershowitz; and the indictment of Congressman Astronaut Rabbi George Santos. Be there, will be wild!
Liz and Andrew bring on former sex crimes prosecutor and New York attorney Mitchell Epner for a discussion of the breaking civil verdict awarding E. Jean Carroll $5 million for Trump’s assault and subsequent defamation. We go WAY beyond the regular media coverage; you won’t want to miss this episode!
Today, Liz and Andrew check in on three stories we’ve previously covered: the conclusion of the E. Jean Carroll lawsuit against Donald Trump; the recent convictions of the Proud Boys in connection with the January 6 insurrection; and what’s going on in Fulton County, Georgia. It’s a whirlwind and you don’t want to miss it!

Then, the duo break down the trial court’s grant of summary judgment in favor of Ryan Lizza in the LOLsuit filed by former Representative and guy-who-sued-an-Internet-cow-and-lost, Devin Nunes. It’s informative AND hilarious!
In the Patreon bonus, we tell you how the omniversal fear of Antonin Scalia created modern supplemental jurisdiction law!

If you’re not following us on Twitter, you’ve missed out on a lot of updates. We’re @openargs and Liz is @5dollarfeminist.
Today, Liz and Andrew break down a number of stories, all of which are bad news for Donald Trump, and we put all of them into the context of Trump’s crimes. We also preview the forthcoming release of part of the Fulton County, GA special purpose grand jury report. Phew!
First, Liz continues to update us on the E. Jean Carroll litigation, this time focusing on Trump’s post-discovery stunt in which he now is willing to offer his DNA. Find out why this is a disingenuous stunt and find out all the law explaining why.
Then we learn more — much more — than you ever wanted to learn about Trump’s document retention and destruction policies. Hint: it involves nightlights and toilets, and no, we are not making that up.
Today, Liz and Andrew have two stories for us, each touching on executive privilege.
We begin with a quick fun Liz story where what comes around, goes around, particularly in Georgia.
Then, for the first main story, Liz gives us a detailed update in the E. Jean Carroll litigation, where Trump has finally replaced Alina Habba with an actual lawyer. How’s that going to go for him? Hint: probably still not great.
After that, Andrew picks up a story involving the January 6th Committee, the New York Times, Politico, Judge Beryl A. Howell, executive privilege, and the world’s longest minute order. It’s a deep dive and a breaking news story all in one!
