Trump creates more legal trouble for himself; Hunter Biden may (or may not) avoid jail; Merrick Garland is second-guessed
Goat scream is great but I'd have loved the Whillhelm scream.
Whenever I listen to this podcast I end up feeling extremely grateful for being well prepared for legal situations I hope I never find myself in.
But what if the goat was screaming ironically?
I'm thinking the podcast should be renamed "Serious places where admitting to crimes can get you in big Trouble."
I respectfully request at least 15 minutes of Ken discussing S2E2 of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds and his view of the Starfleet Code of Justice. Please bring in a UCMJ specialist as needed.
Are there any plans to discuss the growing scandal among Supreme Court Justices?
Does Cannon have to pass a security background clearance check?
I lived in Ft Pierce in the 1990’s, then moved 20 minutes North to Vero Beach. FP, is a haven for drugs, and pick up trucks. Vero Beach, has a large working class, but also has very wealthy communities along the beach. Should be interesting.

Not exactly about crime & punishment, but I wonder if you folks would weigh in on the “independent state legislature” decision by the Supremes, specifically the basis of the dissent by Thomas, Alito, and Gorsuch. What was their reasoning? It couldn’t be simply partisan politics, could it?
Regarding material from classified documents being publicly known, it is against government practice to classify public knowledge (besides being ludicrous). However, it can be the case that while a public version of what is classified information exists, that the government keeps it classified to avoid confirming what was essentially a good, perhaps even somewhat informed, guess. I could see this being especially critical with regard to collection methods and intelligence sources. The "Lone Gunmen" newspaper may speculate that the assistant janitor at the Russian embassy is a spy, but that does not declassify that bit of knowledge or reduce its potential damage to the country if confirmed by the release of a valid source document.
I figured I'd avoid the RICOHotline and just throw this here:

I remember the rigorous amount of scrutiny the guy behind the counter invested into drug histories before handing out handguns to everyone waiting in line...
I would assume part of the reason the USAO is recommending probation is the nightmare that would be sending someone with a secret service detail to spend time in custody.
At worst I would expect home confinement.
Josh... Hunter didn't "not pay" the taxes. He paid them late, which still has legal consequences but not the same, and also worth the nuance.
