Previous prosecutors decided not to indict Trump based on the facts available to them. Has new evidence been discovered?
Israeli Democracy's Vibrance Is Again on Display
No democracy has had more transforming elections and more successful demonstrations than Israel. The recent turnabout in the Netanyahu government's plan to rush through a one-sided judicial "reform" is just the latest example of Israel's raucous democracy at work.
Lawsuits Against Networks for Challenging Elections Endanger Free Speech
Companies that make vote counting machines are suing Fox and others for defaming them. I'm advising clients in several lawsuits involving voting machines, and I'm a frequent contributor to some of these media. So, I am not unbiased. Nor am I unbiased regarding the First Amendment, which I believe is endangered by these lawsuits.

Trump Can't Have It Both Ways With the Constitution

The purpose of a special prosecutor is to avoid both the reality and perception of political bias that is inherent in an attorney general investigating his boss's potential political opponent.
Big Law Firms Have Gone Back to Some Bad Habits

Colleges Are Now a Breeding Ground for Mediocrity, Not Meritocracy
Academic standards in general have been consistently lowered over the past several decades.

Unseal the Mar-a-Lago Search Affidavit—But Redact It, Too
Under the First Amendment, there is a strong presumption in favor of transparency and public availability of important documents. This presumption is rebuttable upon a showing of good cause. The showing cannot be a general claim that investigations should be protected; it must specifically point out names, words, and sentences whose unsealing would pose a significant danger.

The administration of justice is not a game.

The international focus on this one shooting is nothing less than a manifestation of international anti-Semitism.
