Sing a Song (of) Mike Pence
Former Vice President Mike Pence has received subpoenas from Special Counsel Jack Smith. Pence claims that he has grounds to challenge this subpoena; he locates this in the so-called “speech and debate” clause, and some claim that executive privilege is relevant as well. We examine these clauses and doctrines deeply and offer our own conclusions on this issue. Speaking of doctrines, the Supreme Court has brought the “major questions” doctrine out once again in the student debt case, and we look at that. We also take a deeper dive on questions of standing - how do states have the ability to appear in court challenging this presidential action? It may not surprise you to hear that Akhil wrote a relevant article, over 30 years ago.
