On Tiffany Cross' show, The Nation's justice correspondent explains the high bar Merrick Garland will have to reach as Biden's attorney general, and why we don't need new laws to punish the insurrectionists we saw on Wednesday.
Merrick Garland's DOJ doesn't need new laws to properly focus on domestic terrorism. Just prosecute white people with the ones we already have!
Jason Johnson waved his magic wand and made Elie Mystal AG, and asked how he would help re-establish actual ethical standards. The answer? Consequences.
The Nation's justice correspondent joined AM Joy to discuss how he'd be proceeding if he were Joe Biden's attorney general, to make sure our nation doesn't suffer through another toxic transition of power.
On AM Joy, Mystal is less concerned about the Trump cultists marching in DC, claiming their irrelevance helps him refuse to allow them to steal his joy.
Elie Mystal, of The Nation, refuses to let the whining MAGAts in DC steal his joy about Biden crushing Trump in the election.
Not only that, Mystal told Tiffany Cross on AM Joy, expansion would yield more moderate opinions and depoliticize the judiciary.
The Nation's justice correspondent de-mystifies the concept of court expansion, and how it can de-politicize court appointments to the Supreme Court.
This is not optional. If we don't reform and expand this dinosaur from 1 1/2 centuries ago, we won't have a future.
As always, lawyer and contributor to The Nation Elie Mystal cuts through all the nonsense and gets right to the chase: Amy Coney Barrett was nominated because Republicans know she will kill the ACA and Roe v. Wade.
