Episode 37 of the National Security Law Podcast: Enemy Combatants, Agents of Foreign Powers

In this week’s episode, Bobby Chesney and I explore three big national security law developments from the past few days.

First is that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) repeatedly authorized surveillance on Paul Manafort, starting in 2014.

Second: the big news late last week that the U.S. military is holding an unnamed American citizen who was allegedly fighting for ISIS in Syria and is being held as an enemy combatant.

Third: we’ll provide an update on the travel-ban litigation as it moves into the Supreme Court. Listen below.
