Impeachment Trial, A New Party?, Georgia Investigates Trump

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | PocketCasts | Overcast | Stitcher | RSS

Mike, Jay, and special guest-star Olivia talk about week one of Impeachment 2, does the forgone conclusion mean we get a political show trial rather than a deliberative hearing?  Then, is there really any chance of moderate (or more accurately non-Trump Republicans) forming a third party?  Well, some people had a Zoom call about it, so we discuss. Finally, a criminal investigation of Trump from a Georgia county prosecutor may be less than peachy for a lot of reasons, but should there be a prudential (if not legal) line drawn on what activities of a former president should be subject to prosecution?
