CAFE Insider, 11/19 (Part 2): Show Notes

Read

Welcome to Episode 2 of CAFE Insider co-hosted by Preet Bharara and Anne Milgram.

The two-part conversation covers the latest on Mueller, Whitaker, the Julian Assange sealed indictment, and the criminal justice reform bill.

Anne and Preet discussed the latest slate of possible nominees for Attorney General.  Among the contenders: William Barr, former Attorney General under George H.W. Bush, and Mark Filip, former Deputy Attorney General in the Obama administration. Read their bios here and here.

As to that court filing in the Eastern District of Virginia that inadvertently revealed Julian Assange’s indictment under seal, you can read it here.

Anne referenced this Lawfare article on what to look for in the Assange charges. Don’t miss the very last question in that article, as it directs you to an Instagram account you should seriously consider following: it belongs to Julian Assange’s cat!

As noted in the episode, the bipartisan criminal justice reform bill, called the First Step Act, is in many ways just that: a first step.  Read the House and Senate bills here and here.
