1/Just listened to my #SistersInLaw co-host @JoyceWhiteVance answering great questions from @JoyAnnReid. I admire both & almost always agree with Joyce, but I'm with Joy on the issue of AG Garland's slow pace. Justice delayed creates impression that Trump is above the law &...
2/...lets his lies infect upcoming primaries. Similiarly, the delay in acting on a clear case of obstruction of Congress by @MarkMeadows puts him above the law &,even if he's about to be indicted for a substantive crime, inaction on his obstr emboldens others to not cooperate,...
3/Joyce is right that there may be cases in development, and one could be announced tomorrow and we wouldn't & shouldn't know (don't want AG to violate rules I criticized Comey for doing) but many crimes were committed in plain sight and require action now.

After first waves of commentary on #Weisselberg indictment, I sat down with @AWeissmann_.

Several important insights by him:

1. Prosecutors have another option to obtain Weisselberg testimony if he does not cooperate.

2. Weissmann: "After Weisselberg is prosecuted...the prosecution can put him in the grand jury and compel him to testify."

That option is also discussed in #SistersInLaw podcast (@KimberlyEAtkins @JillWineBanks @JoyceWhiteVance @BarbMcQuade)

3. Weissmann details why he thinks (a) the content of the indictment, (b) the prosecutors' requests in the arraignment hearing, and (c) the press conference by defense attorneys points toward a criminal investigation with much more to come.

Last but not least, it’s the cursing cheerleader case where the 1st amendment has won the day. We discussed this case on #SistersInLaw when it was argued. I confess, she’s my kind of cheerleader. supremecourt.gov/opinions/20pdf…
Not last, I failed to check for the R number, assuming we’d just get 3. Sorry about that.
Justice Thomas, in his lone dissent, ponders why we can’t just do things the way we’ve always done them. (The majority obviously disagrees with this assessment of the law)
