How Is DOJ Doing? (with Eric Holder)
Eric Holder is the third longest-serving Attorney General in American history, holding the role from 2009 to 2015 under President Barack Obama. He’s written a new book on voting rights called Our Unfinished March: The Violent Past and Imperiled Future of the Vote. Holder joins Preet to discuss the likelihood that the Department of Justice will indict former President Trump, his fight against partisan gerrymandering, and what he makes of so-called “progressive prosecutors.”  Plus, the latest on the House January 6th Committee hearings: the allegation that GOP lawmakers sought presidential pardons for their roles in the Big Lie, and an eyebrow-raising testimony from a former White House lawyer.  In the bonus for CAFE Insiders, Preet and Attorney General Holder discuss their unsuccessful joint effort to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who the 9/11 Commission called the “principal architect of the 9/11 attacks,” in a civilian court in Manhattan. Mohammed, more commonly known as KSM, remains in detention at Guantanamo Bay. To listen, try the membership for just $1 for one month: cafe.com/insider.

CAFE Insider Sample 5/24: Sour Grapes
Following the leak of the Supreme Court draft opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade, there is an ongoing debate over the extent to which protestors should be permitted to organize outside of the homes of public officials. In this sample from the CAFE Insider podcast, Preet Bharara and Joyce Vance break down the First Amendment implications of a federal law that makes it a misdemeanor to protest outside of federal judges’ residences in an effort to influence the outcome of a case. In the full episode, Preet and Joyce discuss: – DOJ’s request for January 6th Committee interview transcripts; – The Committee’s interview with Rudy Giuliani; – The Committee’s request to interview Georgia Rep. Barry Loudermilk, who allegedly led a tour of the Capitol on January 5th that has raised suspicions about its connection to the attack; and – The lawsuit filed against a group of Wisconsin Trump supporters who attempted to subvert the results of the 2020 presidential election by coordinating a scheme to give the state's electoral votes to Trump.
