John Yoo (yes, that John Yoo) is the Emanuel S. Heller Professor of Law at the University of California, Berkeley, and the co-host of Ricochet’s Law Talk podcast. He likes playing squash and eating at McDonald’s.
There’s no such thing as spring break in the faculty lounge. In the newest installment of the Law Talk podcast, Professors Richard Epstein and John Yoo are analyzing the controversies over the Trump Administration’s alleged ties to Russia (including real-time reaction to breaking news about Michael Flynn), exploring the Trump/Obama wiretap controversy, reacting to new legal setbacks to the president’s executive order on travel restrictions, and predicting the future of Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ crackdown on sanctuary cities.
Then, will California’s attempt to prosecute the makers of the Planned Parenthood videos succeed? And can state governments force Donald Trump to release his tax returns to get on the 2020 ballot? All that plus Yoo gets tough on the Oakland Raiders, Epstein goes soft on Trump, and an unhealthy amount of time is spent discussing the merits of poutine.More
