Episode 114: Manafortnite

March 13, 2019

This week’s show features debate and discussion between co-hosts Professors Steve Vladeck and Bobby Chesney regarding:

  • Paul Manafort: comparing his first and second federal sentences, and the timing of the new New York State charges
  • Yemen: Congress considering a bill to compel an end to US support for the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen, and the President promising a veto
  • The Border Emergency: Congress is poised to pass a bill terminating the asserted national emergency at the border, but that too faces a certain veto
  • The ARTICLE ONE Act: Heaven save us from awkward, forced acronyms.  But perhaps don’t save us from useful changes to the National Emergencies Act? The good, bad, and …incomplete?…about the proposed “ARTICLE ONE Act.”
  • The IoT Cybersecurity Improvement Act: We’ve got a brief breakdown of this useful new bill.
  • Transgender Military Service and Judicial Deference: Judges Wilkins and Williams have it out in Jane Doe 2 v. Shanahan.
  • Habeas for Undocumented Persons in Detention? This case looms very large, and involves a circuit split.
  • Once More Unto the Breach…with Larabee II!
  • A Double-Jeopardy Windfall? Double-mishandling of double jeopardy in US v. Rice?
  • Online Material Support to the Islamic State: The arrest of Kim Vo in Georgia.

And then, just because these two don’t know when to stop, there’s the frivolity: musings about US News Rankings, debate over the college admissions bribery scandal, and a surprise appearance by … Hall and Oates?  You make-a-my dreams come true, dear listeners!
