Megyn opens the show with the shocking moment Hunter Biden and his lawyers showed up on Capitol Hill unannounced, the fighting among members of Congress, good and bad questions aimed at Biden from the press, and more.

Then, lawyers Dave Aronberg and Mike Davis join to discuss whether the first son might be charged with contempt of Congress, what the Department of Justice has done in the past with Trump-affiliated contempt cases, if Biden wanting a public hearing makes him less likely to be charged, the accusations against Fulton County DA Fani Willis and special prosecutor Nathan Wade, whether Wade’s meetings with the Biden White House before the indictment of former President Donald Trump could become an issue, if the improper conduct could hurt the case against Trump and his co-defendants, Trump’s ‘presidential immunity’ argument in his January 6-related trial in Washington, DC, and more.

Finally, 2024 Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN) joins to discuss the hypocrisy and “culture of corruption” in both political parties, the “disease of silence” from Democrats and Republicans, some of his favorite GOP colleagues in the House, why it’s important to avoid the “angertainment” in our culture today, the major issues that caused him to run against President Joe Biden, why he believes the president is too old to run again, the pitfalls of lifelong politicians, his stance on being loving and supportive of trans people while still having age limits on treatment, his father dying in the Vietnam War, and more.
