Former president Donald Trump has been indicted in three different investigations, with a fourth indictment likely to be handed down in the next few weeks. The first indictment against the former president was in the New York City hush money case in March 2023. The second indictment against Donald Trump was in the classified documents probe helmed by Special Counsel Jack Smith. The original indictment was handed up on June 9, 2023 and a superseding indictment was unsealed on June 27, 2023. Last week, a D.C. grand jury voted to indict Donald Trump charging the former president with attempting to subvert the results of the 2020 presidential election. 

Starting this week, at 4 pm ET on Fridays, Lawfare Editor-in-Chief Benjamin Wittes will host a Lawfare Live to discuss the latest developments in the investigations and cases against the former president. Each week he will be joined by Lawfare contributors to provide an in-depth examination of the events of the week.

Material supporters of Lawfare on Patreon and Substack will receive a Zoom link each week and will be able to ask questions during the event.

Audio from each “Trump's Trials and Tribulations” discussion will also be released the next day on the Lawfare Podcast feed.

The first episode will feature a conversation with Benjamin Wittes, Quinta Jurecic, Natalie Orpett, Saraphin Dhanani, and Scott Anderson. It can be found here or above
