    Episode Notes Coronavirus Updates The WHO has now reported that more than 90,000 people have been infected by the COVID-19 virus, with the global death toll rising above 3,000. Cases have spread in recent days to Oman, India, Qatar, France, and Iran, where 77 people have died from the virus. After the first death was recorded in the U.S. in Washington state earlier this week, state officials have now confirmed six deaths, and the virus has spread to at least fifteen states. Federal employees who visited infected patients in California did not follow proper safety procedures, one whistleblower reports, as they took commercial flights and were not tested after leaving the quarantine sites. The CDC encountered problems developing diagnostic testing for the virus, and President Trump is facing backlash for appointing Mike Pence chief of a new coronavirus task force.

    Episode Notes Trump Pardons President Trump granted clemency to 11 individuals on Tuesday, some of whom had been convicted of crimes ranging from tax fraud to obstructing an investigation to money laundering. The series of pardons and commutations was extended to several people who had historic ties to Trump, his business, and his family. However, those receiving clemency also included several people who had been serving long prison sentences for drug crimes, a seeming extension of Trump’s support for the First Step Act. Trump in India President Trump was in India this week, as he was welcomed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to messages of “Namaste Trump.” The president was greeted with enormous fanfare as he spoke at a cricket stadium in front of 100,000 people and posed with his wife in front of the majestic Taj Mahal.

    Episode Notes Attorney General William Barr has faced escalating scrutiny this week as his Department of Justice lowered an initial sentencing recommendation for Roger Stone, who was convicted in November of witness tampering as well as lying to and obstructing Congress. The DOJ intervened after prosecutors initially recommended seven to nine years, saying they would seek a shorter sentence just hours after President Trump tweeted deriding the seven to nine year recommendation. Perceived DOJ interference prompted four prosecutors to leave the case and one to resign from his position as a federal prosecutor. Over 1,100 former prosecutors submitted a letter calling for Barr’s resignation in the wake of this event. A public feud between Barr and Trump has drawn attention this week to the relationship between the president and his DOJ. Barr was criticized during the Mueller probe for not recusing himself from the Mueller special counsel investigation. While some see Barr as a staunch Trump ally, Barr lashing o
