An Irishman Abroad

Week 1 - The Ghislaine Maxwell Trial: Plus The Mississippi Abortion Law, Michael Flynn & More - Irishman In America With Marion McKeone (Mini Pod)

December 3, 2021
With week one drawing to a conclusion the award winning US correspondent Marion McKeone explains what exactly took place. Jarlath wonders what kind of defence can be mounted for the business partner of a convicted predator such as Epstein. Discrediting the memory of the victims seems to be the path chosen by Maxwell's ferocious defence team. The key witnesses, the pilot who claims he saw nothing and the possibility that the conspiracy theories relating to the case are true - Jarlath and Marion get to it all and even a bit more. With vaccines in salads and Roe vs Wade putting an end to the impartiality of the SCOTUS, there’s a lot to get to this week but as always Marion delivers.
