I read a lot of stuff. Think through documents with me as I read them, sometimes by myself, sometimes with friends.
Episode details

In this inaugural episode of “Read With Me,” we examine Merrick Garland’s Order No. 5559-2022, entitled “Appointment of John L. Smith as Special Counsel.” The order cites four statutes, which are discussed in the podcast: 28 USC § 509, 28 USC § 510, 28 USC § 515, and 28 USC § 533. It also cites, and we discuss, the Special Counsel regulations, codified at 28 CFR 600.4-10. And it cites this filing in the Mar-a-Lago litigation.
