A federal judge just unsealed the probable cause affidavit justifying the FBI’s search of Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence. On Monday morning, we convened a panel of experts to share their reactions.
Moderator: Chip Gibbons Panelists: Marjorie Cohn, professor emerita at Thomas Jefferson School of Law (not on video due to tech. issues, but she offers her opinion in Facebook posts made live during the panel), Carey Shenkman, co-author of A Century of Repression: The Espionage Act of 1917 from WWI to the War on, and Kevin Gosztola, managing editor of Shadowproof
Our panelists discuss in-depth the specific subsections and articles of the Espionage Act that are delineated in the affidavit, as well as the political and legal implications of applying the Espionage Act in this manner.
