In this sample from the CAFE Insider podcast, Preet and Joyce break down the news that former President Donald Trump exerted pressure on DOJ officials to declare the 2020 election “corrupt” and to overturn the results, as revealed in newly-released notes taken by former acting Deputy Attorney General Richard Donoghue during a phone call with Trump.  In the full episode, they discuss the first hearing held by the House select committee investigating the January 6th attack on the Capitol, and the Department of Justice’s refusal to defend Rep. Mo Brooks in a civil lawsuit brought by Rep. Eric Swalwell that accuses Brooks of inciting the riot.
