TAMPA, FL and YONKERS, NY — January 5, 2021 — Hezi Aris, Yonkers Tribune Publisher / Editor focuses on hyperlocal, county, state, national, and international news and concerns with commensurate analysis. From 10-11am EST.
WMU-Cooley Law School Prof. Brendan T. Beery (Tampa, FL campus) attends the broadcast at 11am. Discussion focuses on the release of a tape recording in which President Donald Trump is heard trying to rig the presidential election that took place in Georgia. The President is heard beseeching Brad Raffensperger, Georgia’s Republican Secretary of State, to “find” enough votes to overturn Joe Biden’s win and raising the prospect of a “criminal offense” if he had. President Trump was seeking to overturn 11,780 votes toward his campaign so that he could claim victory over now President-elect Joe Biden by one vote more than Biden.
We learn what criminal, if any, charges can be lobbed against sitting President Trump with Prof. Brendan T. Beery’s insight from 11-11:30am. Fellow WMU-Cooley Law School Prof. Jeff Swartz joins the conversation with Prof. Beery from 11:30am-12Noon.
Carl Bernstein said, “At issue is whether President Trump can be charged with a criminal offense in Georgia. We have both a criminal president of the United States and a subversive president of the United States at the same time in this one person subverting the very basis of our democracy, and willing to act criminally in that subversion.”
Carl Bernstein, best known for breaking the Watergate scandal has held up President Trump’s phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger as evidence of criminal actions to undo his election loss.
Bernstein stated, “All these Republicans, from Cruz to all the rest of them who have participated in this sham, really ought to be made to pay by history, as should their party. This is not some kind of forgivable act. This is not about two simple equal sides of an equation. There are no two sides to this question. This is about democracy, fundamental principles… We have, for the first time, a president of the United States who has exceeded McCarthy’s authoritarianism, his disrespect for the constitution and rule of law, and the Republican party of our time – with McConnell’s leadership, with McCarthy’s leadership — has gone along with it to their disgrace.”
