In this episode, Professors Vladeck and Chesney get into the weeds of the controversy surrounding the statements Attorney General Sessions made during his confirmation process concerning contacts with Russians. Is there a credible case for perjury here? They don’t seem to agree, but you’ll have to listen to find out where they part ways. They also foreshadow future discussions regarding the debate that will occur this year regarding “Section 702” renewal, as well as the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board. As usual, things come apart at the end, especially when Game of Thrones enters the picture.
