Ted Talks

Talking Feds_Square Podcast Thumbnail.png

The Feds are honored to be joined by Rep. Ted Lieu, a forceful presence on the House Judiciary Committee. We begin with a probing look at the legal, ethical, and political implications of the President’s suggestion that it’s fine for a campaign to take negative information about an opponent from a foreign country, including the seemingly untenable position that Trump has imposed on FBI Director Christopher Wray by directly contradicting him in public.  Following a sidebar from Prof Larry Tribe on the federal government’s obligation to provide information to criminal defendants, the Feds engage in a candid assessment of Congress’s attempts to date to bring the Mueller report to life before the American public, ending with Rep Lieu’s declaration that  "[w]e are going to get McGahn to testify at some point."

Along with Congressman Lieu, host Harry Litman is joined by Josh Campbell of CNN a former FBI agent. He’s also joined by Professor Laurie Levenson of Loyola Law School, former trial and appellate lawyer, and one of the chief public authorities on prosecutorial practice.
