The Brooding Omnipresence of the Law

I practiced the law, I practically perfected it.

The AO marathon continues as David and Sarah catch up on Supreme Court hearings. In this feature-length episode, they explore the line between lobbying and bribery, raise eyebrows at the historicity of the “independent legislature” argument, and debate the extent to which the 303 Creative case is about speech. Also: the Jan. 6 prosecutors may have caught their white whale.
