Episode 213: Most Likely to Engage in a Seditious Conspiracy

January 19, 2022

Seeing as how 2022 is well underway, it’s probably about time we produced a new episode!  Tune in for co-hosts Steve Vladeck and Bobby Chesney as they discuss and debate:

  • The various international and domestic law questions that might arise in that Russia (further) invades Ukraine
  • The oral argument in Thompson v. Trump (especially the presidential immunity question)
  • The who-owns-the-privilege question in Trump v. Thompson (not a typo)
  • The seditious conspiracy indictment against Oath Keepers leaders
  • What federal statutes have to say about a scenario in which the President might confer authority on a private armed group to “enforce” the law
  • Believe it or not, a judicial change in a military commission
  • More GTMO detainees approved (by Periodic Review Board) for transfer out (though no one actually seems to be leaving)

All that plus the usual frivolity, this time featuring the classic combination of (1) Jim Carrey films and (2) NFL playoffs.
