Joyce Vance hosts #SistersInLaw to analyze the guilty pleas of Kenneth Chesebro and Sidney Powell in Georgia, why they got off relatively easy, and what their convictions mean for the other defendants.  Then, they discuss the DOJ’s class action settlement on behalf of immigrant families separated at the border, with a look at how they’re being compensated and the steps the government must take to make sure it never happens again.  From there, they debate the merits of forum shopping that has enabled people to take advantage of the system for better outcomes and empower a single judge to set national policy.  But given that it was a lone judge who dismantled Trump’s muslim ban, can it sometimes be a good thing?

Jill WIne-Banks hosts #SistersInLaw to delve into the superseding indictment of Senator Menedez.  They examine how his role as the chair of the Foreign Relations Committee gives the charges against him national security ramifications, and lay out the political implications if he ends up resigning.  Moving on to the next indictment, they break down the charges against Rep. Santos with a look at how his actions defrauded his donors and the election process.  From there, they explain the differences between political and racial gerrymandering and how South Carolina’s conflation of the two has taken their recently drawn congressional map to the Supreme Court.

Barb McQuade hosts #SistersInLaw to discuss the national security implications of Trump’s sharing of information about our submarine fleet and why that information has not resulted in charges.  They also cover the feasibility of his motions to delay and why presidential immunity is not a sufficient claim to dismiss the charges stemming from his attempt to overturn the election.  Next, they look at the progress of the Rico cases in Fulton and share the procedure for summoning out of state witnesses, before breaking down the First Amendment issues at stake in the upcoming case around social media moderation being taken up by the SCOTUS.

I love your show. I impatiently wait every week for it to drop! I have a question... I've been so excited that Georgia was pursuing Trump because a republican president couldn't pardon him. it hit me that a republican governor could pardon his STATE crimes. 🤷.. I'd love to be wrong.

I LOVE this podcast! I'm definitely a political junkie and have come to know each one of these amazing women via the political shows I watch. They are brilliant, each in her own way, and able to bring complicated ideas to the layperson (me) for understanding the world around me. I get on Castbox daily and I'll admit, I pop over to see if a new episode dropped while I wasn't looking! "Fine, it's only been four days.... but maaaybe there's an emergency one....". So, I checked already today 🙃, two more days...

Thank you all for sharing your thoughts, expertise and experience. I’m exhausted by the lawlessness of Donald & his cronies.

Kim, I understand how you feel about the lack of mask wearers outside. My daughter and her friend went out to the mall for the first time in a ling time. They were both vaccinated and boosted, however, they had to eat as they were celebrating one's 16th birthday. The noted that noone is wearing masks and they both got covid as a result. WEAR MASkS FOR YOU AND YOUR NEIGHBOR!

How interesting Kim. You mentioned in previous podcast of being Pro Life. So now are you saying otherwise because it could affect your marriage?
