In this episode, we look at the political news surrounding Trump and the ex-UK PM Johnson and ask why Republicans can't do what the Conservative Party in the UK can: dump a political leader who has passed his sell-by date. Former President Donald Trump pleaded not guilty to 37 charges, including 31 counts of willful retention of national defence information, after being indicted by the Department of Justice for potential mishandling of classified documents. His arraignment took place in Miami, marking the first instance in American history of a former president facing federal charges. Many Republicans see it as a which hunt.
While over in the UK Ex-PM Boris Johnson resigned ahead of a damning report by the Privileges Committee, which would have suspended him due to findings of deliberately misleading Parliament about lockdown parties. Although his resignation avoids a potential by-election, Conservatives are relieved to bid farewell to the populist former PM.
