Scripps News: The State of the House Without a Speaker: Attorney Andrew Lieb Discusses the Ongoing Leadership Battle in Congress

In this Scripps News interview, Attorney Andrew Lieb answers questions about the ongoing Speaker battle in the House of Representatives. He is asked about there being no limit on votes for Speaker, Patrick McHenry's duties and powers as Speaker Pro Tem, if McHenry could become president in the line of succession, if Hakeem Jeffries could become Speaker if he receives a majority of votes, if legislation could pass under a Speaker Pro Tem, and if Congress can change its own rules similar to proposals to amend the Second Amendment. The interview covers Lieb's responses on the rules governing Speaker votes, McHenry temporarily serving as Speaker, Jeffries or others becoming Speaker, Congress's ability to pass bills in the interim, and the different processes for changing Congressional rules versus amending the Constitution.

Scripps News: Attorney Andrew Lieb Talking About Donald Trump Being Indicted In The Classified Documents Case

Andrew Lieb, a renowned constitutional attorney, was recently invited to provide expert commentary on Scripps News regarding the groundbreaking indictments of former President Donald Trump in Florida and Washington DC. The charges range from mishandling classified documents to violating the Espionage Act.

Lieb described the indictments as shocking due to their sheer magnitude. He highlighted that the incident marked a significant moment in U.S. history, where a former president was facing legal scrutiny on this scale. 

He also addressed House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy's public backlash against the indictment, which he deemed as a severe injustice and an unprecedented politicization of the judiciary.

According to Lieb, it is essential to appreciate that no one, including a former president, is above the law. At the same time, he noted that the case could set a precedent where potential public office candidates must maintain impeccable records to avoid similar legal scrutiny.

Lieb underlined the potential political implications of the indictment, suggesting that while it could benefit Trump in terms of visibility and fundraising amidst a crowded nomination field, the former president should prioritize his legal defense over political aspirations due to the severity of the charges.

The attorney eloquently captured the dilemma many Americans are currently grappling with: the desire for the rule of law to prevail versus the fear of potential political witch-hunts. In Lieb's view, the resolution of this case could significantly impact public trust in our judicial system and the very foundations of our democracy.
