Stuart M. Gerson, a Member of the Firm in the Litigation and Health Care & Life Sciences practices, in the firm’s Washington, DC, and New York offices, was featured on WNYC's The Takeaway, in “The Trump vs. Sessions Feud Escalates,” a podcast by Todd Zwillich.

Following is an excerpt:

But just six months into the new administration, the relationship between President Trump and Attorney General Sessions is frayed. In a set of tweets issued Monday and Tuesday, the president questioned why Sessions isn’t investigating Hillary Clinton’s emails, and called Sessions “beleagured.” …

What’s the president’s endgame here? And what does it mean for both the special prosecutor’s investigation into the president, and for the integrity of the Justice Department?

For answers, we turn to Stuart Gerson, who served as assistant attorney general in the George H.W. Bush administration from 1989 to 1993, and as the acting attorney general in the Clinton Administration in 1993. He’s now an attorney at Epstein, Becker, Green. Gerson discusses the relationship between the president and the attorney general, and if it's damaging the integrity of the Department of Justice.
