Amarica’s Constitution-05/15/24-Trials, Pardons, & Elephant

Donald Trump’s New York trial – where a conviction would be federal pardon-proof – has proceeded apace. we are pleased to bring a report to you from the trial itself, introducing you to one of Professor Amar’s star students in the process. Are there constitutional issues stemming from the trial? You bet, and we address some of them. Meanwhile, a number of listeners have asked similar questions recently, so we take that family of questions on, and sure enough, there’s a lot to discuss there as well.
