Show Notes

The latest episode of the CAFE Insider podcast, “Epstein & Con(Census),” is now available. In today’s discussion, Preet and Anne break down:

  • The sex trafficking case brought by SDNY prosecutors against disgraced billionaire Jeffrey Epstein who stands accused of sexually exploiting and abusing dozens of underage girls over a course of many years
  • President Trump’s insistence on adding the citizenship question to the 2020 Census, despite the Supreme Court’s decision last month that halts the government from proceeding based on the rationale Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross provided for its inclusion.
