Constitutional Vanguard: Why the House Managers Dropped the Ball, from a Prosecutor’s Point of View
A teaser from today’s Constitutional Vanguard newsletter:
Today, the House managers are trying to justify this disastrous decision. As a prosecutor who has tried plenty of cases, I’m here to say: there is no justification for this. I’ll tell you why in this missive — and I’ll tell you a story about a hypothetical gang murder case, loosely based on my experience, to vividly explain why live testimony is better than stipulations.
Never stipulate to the coroner.
Today’s missive is free, although you can also sign up for the paid version to get extra content, which I am trying to put out on Wednesdays at a minimum. (Last week it was Monday because there was a time-sensitive post about the lawsuit against the District Attorney that I wanted to write about.) I was going to make today’s free missive about the ways that “equity” can kill people — but the impeachment topic seemed more timely, so I think I’ll save the equity post for the paid subscribers on Wednesday. I have already written much of it and I think you’ll find it thought-provoking. Sign up here.
