Blurring Public and Private Conduct
On this week’s Versus Trump, Jason and Charlie discuss two new legal filings by the Trump DOJ that blur the line between the President as government official and the President as private citizen. In the first case, the government argues that the President's twitter feed is not an official public forum, so he can block people with whom he disagrees. In the second, the government argues that the President's denials that he sexually assaulted E. Jean Carroll were made in his official capacity as President. Are these inconsistent? What do they tell us about Trump's broader conduct?You can find us at @VersusTrumpPod on twitter, or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
