America On Trial with Josh Hammer

America On Trial with Josh Hammer

America On Trial covers the 2024 Presidential election through the only lens that truly matters: the legal proceedings of Donald J. Trump and Hunter Biden. The daily podcast, hosted by attorney Josh Hammer, examines breaking news and analyzes the biggest questions in American history: What are the limits of Presidential power? Can the former President of the United States get a fair trial? Can Trump serve if he takes a plea? Can he be disqualified from the ballot? Can President Biden pardon his son? Could President Trump pardon himself? These questions will undoubtedly go all the way to the Supreme Court and ultimately decide the next President of the United States. America on Trial covers all the action every morning, helping you stay one step ahead of the media spin on decisions that will impact our nation for years to come.
