Government by Clown Show (Episode 14)

From our new national anthem to partnering with Russia on cybersecurity at the G19+1 Summit, the political news this week continues to be grim. We also cover the Third Circuit affirming the constitutional right to record police, go through a week’s worth of criminal justice f*ckery (including the extrajudicial summary execution of Dejuan Guillory), and for our #Law140 segment we look into that car accident involving Venus Williams and what happens when you’re defamed by the Government.

Listen in to this week’s episode as we review the testimony from James Comey and the peculiar defenses by Peach Perón’s surrogates, a Republican Congresscritter calls for us to support ISIS, new mandatory minimums for sexting, police practicing their new techniques for killing unarmed Americans (choking!) and for putting out fires (kicks to the face!), and for #Law140 we consider if President Trump is violating the First Amendment by blocking people who tweet him.
