Trump vs the FBI
Sunday, 28 August
This episode was recorded prior to the Mar-a-Lago search affidavit being released on Friday... The FBI raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort made headlines worldwide. What will the fallout be – legally and politically? Julia Azari, professor of Political Science at Marquette University, joins Justin Quirk to discuss what the raid means for Trump and US politics more widely, and why it has taken so long for the law to catch up with America’s 45th President.
“This has somewhat overshadowed the January 6th hearings.”
“How do we find political peace but also ensure people are equal under the rule of law?”
“Even if Trump is given the Nixon treatment, the debates around Trumpism won’t go away.”
“Even if the Republicans take control of Congress, this won’t go away.”
