1. Dakota Hall, ED at Alliance for Youth Action, joins us to talk about young voters, the SOTU, and more!

4. Mask laws are ending, so get your noses ready for spring.

BTL #333 - Judiciary Committee - 12/9/19

In Which We Discuss:

1. The impeachment hearings move to Judiciary, where more staid professionals argued that Trump’s legal shenanigans are also illegal crimes.

2. Giuliani’s genius plan for this week was to go to Kiev because that way he can commit different crimes to avoid suspicion about the stuff he’s already done.

3. Duncan Hunter and his pet rabbit Eggburt are leaving Congress.

4. Somebody has actually polled California only to discover that we all love Bernie Sanders.

5. Biden challenges Iowan man to a pushup contest because, again, he’s not sure how running for president works.

6. AOC beat Amazon just by having the gaul to suggest that letting corporations blackmail major cities is a waste of resources.
