Former U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade digs into the week's explosive testimony at the January 6th committee hearing -- and whether it pushes the Department of Justice closer to an indictment of Donald Trump.
Even before the debacle in Iowa, law professor Rick Hasen has been sounding the alarm about the problems with our voting systems.
There are the real threats such as cyberattacks and human incompetence. And then there are the manufactured ones like persistent – and false — accusations of voter fraud.
Hasen argues these risks, both legitimate and perceived, are working to undermine the faith in our country’s ability to hold a free and fair election. His new book is titled, “Election Meltdown: Dirty Tricks, Distrust, and the Threat To American Democracy.”
