Pence Testifies About Jan 6th and Holding Congress + SCOTUS To Account
In Glenn's longform weekend podcast he talks about reform of the executive branch to make other branches accountable and the legal recap stories of the week. First up - The firing of Tucker Carlson from Fox News and the testimony of Mike Pence to the grand jury about the January 6th insurrection. Then - the most frustrating story of the week as Donald Trump continues to post insults, threats, and demeaning comments about people who are involved in his New York trials. Glenn wonders - shouldn't the judges issue a Gag Order to protect jurors, prosecutors, and their families? Next Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has withdrawn his appeal to block former New York prosecutor Mark Pomerantz from testifying to the House Judiciary Committee about his investigation of Donald Trump. But it seems Bragg now has a way to make sure no damaging information is revealed to the committee. And finally, in this week's segment on reform - Senator Ted Cruz was recorded with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo discussing how to rig the 2020 election for Donald Trump and Justice Clarence Thomas has been caught accepting luxury gifts and real estate without reporting them. Glenn explains how we should check and balance the judicial and legislative branches of our government to make them accountable.
