You may be familiar with the many times the ACLU has sued the president, but today we’re going to cover two lawsuits against the Trump Administration you may NOT have heard of. We interview Glenda Aldana Madrid, Staff Attorney at the the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project about their lawsuit against Jeff Sessions. We also discuss a couple of lawsuits against Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, and some awesome Listener Mail about the UK election.
Betsy DeVos lost the first part of a a court battle when a California federal judge ruled that her Department’s effort to delay addressing a defrauded student’s claim for loan relief was “both frivolous and in bad faith.”
We start out with Comey Week! The hearing, the media’s response, our thoughts, Trump’s insane post-hearing press conference, and all the he said/he said you can stand.
Then, we’re going to talk about the horrible bullshit the GOP was up to while everyone was hungover from the Comey hearing, including voting to rip up Dodd-Frank, because I guess the only thing the GOP likes better than stealing our healthcare is stealing our healthcare in the middle of a brand new financial crisis.
Finally, we’ll also give a quick update on the latest flaming garbage coming out of Betsy DeVos’s Department of Education.
