Prof. Richard Painter Co-Authors Op-Ed in Bloomberg Law in Reaction to Trump Grand Jury Fore-Person's Comments to the Media

Prof. Richard Painter recently co-authored an op-ed in Bloomberg Law with Visiting Professor David Schultz '98 and Professor David Super from Georgetown Law in reaction to the Trump grand jury fore-person's recent comments to the media. Painter writes, "It is unseemly for a grand juror to talk with the press about the charging decision, because we expect the prosecution to speak with one voice through trained prosecutors who decide what should and shouldn’t be said publicly before trial."
