quoting Jack Goldsmithvia Just Security
Monday, January 29, 2018

Although President Trump confidently declared that he is willing to speak to special counsel Robert Mueller under oath, and is even “looking forward to it,” his principal lawyer advising him on the investigation, Ty Cobb, has darkly warned of a “perjury trap.” That “concern” has now been echoed by Trump supporters Roger Stone and Rush Limbaugh, who have both cautioned Trump about speaking with Mueller.

interview with Richard A. Epsteinvia Ricochet
Sunday, January 28, 2018

Hoover Institution fellow Richard Epstein discusses who looks worse in the Mueller investigation, President Trump or the FBI? Is trading DACA for a border wall a grand bargain or a big mistake?

by Jack Goldsmithvia Lawfare
Saturday, January 27, 2018
