First, a thank you to all who gifted a membership or a one-on-one zoom meeting to friends and relatives. We think that they make ideal gifts. Consider it.
And now, our sincere gratitude to all members who took the time to respond to our Friday, August 12 survey about whether or not Trump should go to jail. Time is an irreplaceable resource. We appreciate your involvement.
Michael Conway, a long-time trial lawyer who started his career as counsel for the House Judiciary Committee during the impeachment inquiry into Richard Nixon in 1974, and who now teaches ethics and the law at Northwestern University, recently stated: “It’s no longer premature to say that Trump could end up in prison. It’s a winnable case.”
You can see our survey results below.

|Tom Ginsburg, a professor of international law and political science at the University of Chicago: “Prosecuting a former president is a highly fraught thing to do, especially when a president retains as much support as [Trump] still does.”||
|Newsweek Magazine reporter David Freedman: “Trump’s contributing in some way to the actions of the mob on January 6, potential charges could include solicitation to commit a crime of violence, incitement of riot and obstruction of Congress (are enough for him to do jail time).”||
