Retired judges Gayle Williams-Byers and Tom Hodson dissect Donald Trump’s legal issues into understandable terms for the public.

In this episode, they examine two recent rulings by Judge Scott McAfee of Fulton County Georgia concerning the dismissal of six counts from the multicount, multiparty Trump indictment.

They also explain Judge McAfee’s ruling allowing Prosecutor Fani Willis to remain on the case against the former President and his co-defendants.

Judges Byers and Hodson use understandable language and examples to break down complex legal motions and rulings.

Both think it is important for the public to understand what is going on in the courts and both think the mainstream media is not doing an adequate job of deciphering crucial terms and legal proceedings.

“People don’t trust what they don’t understand,” said Judge Byers. So, these retired judges have committed themselves to raising the public’s level of understanding.

Besides both being former jurists, Judge Byers was a former Assistant Prosecutor and Judge Hodson was a former defense attorney. Therefore, they also can give insights into various attorney strategies taking place in the cases.

In addition to talking about Georgia in this episode, the judicial duo also discusses pretrial judicial rulings in the Mar-a-Lago document case against former President Trump.
