Liberals love to loathe John Yoo. Some still want him tried as a war criminal for co-authoring the legal memo that the George W. Bush Administration used to justify authorizing “enhanced interrogation” after 9/11. But Yoo is a sharp legal mind, Never Trumper and Constitutional expert who knows Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh well. In advance of next week’s SCOTUS confirmation hearings, we talk to him about what kind of legal trouble Trump is in and how Kavanaugh might rule. Yoo also talks about why Asian-Americans should vote Republican and if he feels any sort of remorse for being the legal mind behind the torture memos.
