This was a big week for former president Trump who prevailed in Trump v. Anderson against an attempt to remove him from the ballot in Colorado. Your hosts dive deep into that decision unpacking the majority opinion, the debate among the concurring justices, and the case’s short- and long-term implications. After that, GianCarlo interviews Ninth Circuit Judge Kenneth Lee, who recounts his fascinating life and career, beginning with his immigration to the United States from Korea. Lastly, GianCarlo quizzes Zack with trivia about Justices who have served in the armed forces.
