In this sample from the CAFE Insider podcast, Preet and Joyce break down the news that the DOJ under Attorney General Merrick Garland is maintaining its position that it should defend Donald Trump against a defamation suit brought by E. Jean Carroll, a writer who has accused Trump of raping her in the 1990s.

In the full episode, they discuss newly-released emails that show former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows pressuring the DOJ to investigate election fraud conspiracy theories. Plus, they break down new developments in the investigations into Donald Trump and Matt Gaetz.
