Attorney Ken Rosenfeld is in the studio to talk with Mae and Simone about the latest legal cases in the media.

Rosenfeld says he is puzzled as to why the Trump Administration is even wasting their time in the circuit court. The government has a "secret" court that has authority to overrule the judge in this case. The court is known as the FISA Court and many have no idea that this court exists, Rosenfeld says. He says the court meets in secret and hears cases based on only the request/arguments of the government. In other words, Rosenfeld says, the ACLU would never get in the door.
