The Garrulous Gavel

Aug 12, 2021

In this episode, we speak with former philosophy grad student, and current high-profile Washington, D.C. attorney, Matt Kaiser. Matt represents Congressman Eric Swalwell in a lawsuit against Donald Trump, Donald Trump, Jr., Rudy Guliani, and Congressman Mo Brooks, in which Rep. Swalwell argues that those defendants should be held legally responsible for the violent January 6 riot at the Capitol that tried to stop the certification of Joe Biden’s election. I talk with Matt about the events of January 6, the goals of the lawsuit, and some of the interesting legal and philosophical issues that it raises. Then, Matt tells us about what it's like to do door-knocking for political campaigns, and why he loves those one-on-one interactions with complete strangers.
