Weekend Listening: Episode 31 of the National Security Law Podcast

I’ve been delinquent in flagging this week’s episode of the National Security Law Podcast, all the more so because I think it’s one of the best discussions Bobby Chesney and I have had. Among other topics, we consider (in detail) the legal issues surrounding last weekend’s alarming and tragic events in Charlottesville (and the broader issues arising out of Confederate statuary); the government’s effort to obtain IP addresses from DreamHost for a website used to organize anti-Trump protests (and violence) during Inauguration; the D.C. district court’s important ruling on Wednesday denying Abu Khatallah’s motion to suppress statements made after his overseas capture (with sustained discussion of presentment and Miranda in such overseas-capture cases); and, most frivolously, the latest developments on Game of Thrones, including some discussion of Westerosi laws of primogeniture.

The episode itself is available here, but now might be an especially good time to subscribe via iTunes or your favorite podcast platform if you haven’t already… Happy listening!!
