FOX LiveNOW: Attorney Andrew Lieb Breaks Down New Mexico's Controversial Temporary Gun Ban

Andrew Lieb, a legal political analyst, discusses New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham's temporary ban on guns in public places with an emergency public health order. Lieb analyzes the order from both a political and constitutional perspective. He notes that while the order may be politically controversial, it attempts to fit within the "sensitive places" doctrine outlined in recent Supreme Court gun rights cases. The order will likely face legal challenges but could force further definition of what constitutes a "sensitive place." Overall, Lieb argues the order highlights the urgent need to address gun violence as a public health crisis through multi-pronged solutions.

FOX LiveNOW: Attorney Andrew Lieb Talking About Ex-Proud Boys Leader Sentencing

Attorney Andrew Lieb joins Newsmax National Report Court show to discuss a potential defamation lawsuit threatened by Elon Musk against the Anti-Defamation League. Andrew Lieb represented the ADL in a mock trial setting. He argued that any claims by Musk of the ADL spreading defamation would be difficult to prove, as calling someone Anti-Semitic is a non-actionable opinion under free speech law. Lieb also noted that as public figures, Musk would need to prove actual malice by the ADL to have a case. He believed this threatened lawsuit appeared frivolous and intended to silence free speech.

Newsmax: Political Analyst Andrew Lieb Breaks Down Trial Timeline for Trump's Multiple Indictments

In a recent Newsmax interview, political analyst and attorney Andrew Lieb weighed in on the various legal cases facing former President Donald Trump.

One of the major topics Lieb discussed was the aggressive October timeline being pushed by Fulton County DA Fannie Willis for Trump's criminal trial related to election interference in Georgia. Lieb saw this as potential evidence of the political motivations at play, noting the complex nature of the case involving multiple defendants would make such a timeline unrealistic.

Lieb also pointed to the potential for Trump attorney Mark Meadows to move the case to federal court, which could significantly delay or alter the course of the prosecution.

Newsmax: Political Analyst Andrew Lieb Discusses Climate Crisis, Maui Fire, & Hurricane Idalia

In a recent interview with Newsmax, political analyst Andrew Lieb criticized President Biden's response to the devastating wildfires in Maui and Hurricane Ida. Lieb pointed out that over 115 people had died and 100 were still missing in the disasters. However, Biden had focused more on politicizing the issues and pushing his climate change agenda rather than empathizing with victims and prioritizing relief efforts.

Lieb argued that politicians need to "triage" these situations by first expressing support and offering help to those affected, rather than immediately turning the conversation to policy debates. With so many lives lost and communities destroyed, Lieb said those impacted were unlikely to be thinking about climate change at that moment - the priority should be addressing the immediate humanitarian crisis.

Lieb advocated for a more pragmatic leader who can balance addressing both the human costs of disasters as well as longer-term scientific issues.

He highlighted that this new alliance poses challenges not only for the U.S. economy but also for the country's future energy landscape. Lieb argued that, in light of these developments, Western allies must unite to address the situation effectively.

Newsmax: Attorney Andrew Lieb Discusses Late Senator James Buckley's Legacy and Landmark Free Speech Case

FOX LiveNOW: Attorney Andrew Lieb Breaks Down Trump's Booking & Legal Complexities at Fulton County Jail

Former President Donald Trump's booking and processing at Fulton County Jail on August 24, 2023, marks a significant legal development that has elicited extensive analysis and commentary. Legal analyst Andrew Lieb joined LiveNOW from FOX to provide an examination of the legal implications surrounding this event, describing it as "surreal."

The Significance of the Mugshot

According to Lieb, this is the first instance where Trump will have a mugshot taken. While a mugshot is standard procedure for most defendants, Lieb notes that Trump managed to avoid this step in his previous three indictments. The absence of a mugshot in previous cases could potentially have legal ramifications, and the inclusion of one in this instance indicates that the Fulton County sheriff is adhering strictly to established procedures for all defendants.

Treatment by the Legal System

Andrew Lieb pointed out that in previous instances, Trump appeared to receive certain privileges uncommon for typical defendants, such as not having a mugshot taken. In Fulton County, however, the sheriff's department is treating Trump as they would any other defendant. This could be significant, as differential treatment of defendants can sometimes become a point of contention in legal proceedings.

Legal Gravity of the Situation

Lieb offered that this may be the first time Trump is fully grasping the gravity of his legal situation. The contrast between Trump's known lavish lifestyle and the austere environment of a jail cell may underscore the severity of the legal procedures that he is currently undergoing. While Lieb suggests that the gravity may be setting in for Trump, it is, of course, speculative to determine a defendant's state of mind.

Co-Defendants to Consider

In addition to Trump, Andrew Lieb pointed out two co-defendants that merit attention: Kenneth Chesebro and Mark Meadows. These actions by co-defendants could introduce variables that affect the trajectory of the case.

Newsmax: Attorney Andrew Lieb Discusses Hearing in Mark Meadows' Removal Motion

Attorney Andrew Lieb appeared on Newsmax on 8/26/2023 to discuss the latest developments in the January 6th prosecution cases. He noted that there will be a crucial hearing where Judge Jones will hear arguments on Mark Meadows' motion to remove his case to federal court on 8/28/2023.

Lieb explained that Meadows is arguing he was acting within his capacity as White House Chief of Staff during the events of January 6th. However, testifying about his subjective beliefs could be problematic for Meadows as a criminal defendant. Lieb said the outcome of Meadows' removal motion will be closely watched, as it could influence whether former President Trump pursues a similar federal court strategy.

Lieb also weighed in on the challenges of prosecuting all 19 January 6th defendants together. He doubted the logistics of fitting all the defendants, attorneys, and evidence into one courtroom. Through upcoming motion practice, Lieb expects attempts to either move the cases or split them apart for trial.

FOX LiveNOW: Attorney Andrew Lieb Analyzed Court Hearings for Meadows & Trump in Georgia and D.C.

Attorney Andrew Lieb joins LiveNOW from FOX on 8/28/23 at 9:30AM to discuss the legal proceedings for Trump and Meadows. Hearings could have major implications on transparency and Trump's legal liability in these election-related cases.

  • Two major court cases discussed in the interview: Washington D.C. case regarding election interference charges. A hearing will determine if the trial date will be January 2024 (as prosecutors want) or April 2026 (as Trump wants). - Result was March 4, 2024.
  • Georgia case involving "fake electors." A hearing was taking place to determine if the case stays in state court or is moved to federal court, as defendant Mark Meadows wants.
  • If the Georgia case moves to federal court, cameras will not be allowed in the courtroom, removing transparency.
  • Co-defendants' attempts to argue they were "acting under direction of Trump" directly implicates the former president in the alleged fake elector scheme.
  • Trump benefits from wealth, power and influence in the legal system. He receives preferential treatment like quick release from jail compared to others facing similar charges.
  • The many ongoing legal battles may energize Trump's base but hurt his chances in a general election by making him seem politically divisive and potentially guilty of crimes.

FOX LiveNOW: Political Analyst Andrew Lieb Discusses Trump Preparing To Surrender

In his latest interview on LiveNOW from Fox, legal analyst Andrew Lieb provided commentary on the criminal cases facing former President Donald Trump. 
  • Lieb broke down the charges in the Georgia case, including the RICO charge alleging Trump and others formed a criminal enterprise to try to change the lawful election results. Fake elector documents and pressure on officials are also part of the allegations.
  • The terms of Trump's release in Georgia notably include prohibitions on intimidating witnesses through social media posts, indicating this may be an area of focus for prosecutors.
  • Upcoming dates include an arraignment the week of September 5th and Lieb questioned whether an October trial date will hold given issues around defendant requests for separate trials.

Lieb believes the Georgia case has the biggest scope of allegations and will be the most watched criminal trial in U.S. history given cameras will be allowed in the courtroom.

Newsmax: Attorney Andrew Lieb Analyzes Legal Issues Surrounding Trump Investigations

On a recent Newsmax interview, attorney and political analyst Andrew Lieb weighed in on the legal implications of ongoing investigations into former President Donald Trump. 

Lieb said that Mark Meadows is set for a Monday hearing in the removal of his case to federal court, which could be a telling sign, where evidence presented will likely include the subpoenaed Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

He cautioned against rushing to judgment until more facts are known. 

Overall, Lieb emphasized the importance of allowing the legal processes to play out and examining evidence before making determinations about the validity of charges.

During a recent interview on LiveNOW from FOX, legal expert Andrew Lieb discussed the ongoing criminal charges involving Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump, along with that investigation's impact on the Republican Debate. Here's a summary of the key points:
  • Prior to his arrest, a $150K bond amount for Giuliani was agreed upon through a "consent" process.
  • Trump is entangled in various legal battles, one of which is in Georgia, where he's accused of running a "criminal enterprise" to challenge the 2020 election results using false claims and pressuring officials.
  • The Georgia trial will be broadcasted, allowing the public to observe the proceedings without bias.
  • A recent document submission by Jack Smith suggests that the investigation in DC has led to a new witness, referred to as "employee 4," who decided to cooperate after seeking independent legal advice.
Lieb commented on the cases' gravity, stating, "The felonies being discussed come with significant jail time... In terms of evidence, there's conclusive proof in the Florida case."
