On Monday, October 29, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Clapper v. Amnesty International, which poses the question whether a group of human rights organizations, lawyers, activists, and journalists have standing to challenge a congressionally-authorized warantless government surveillance program. In this episode of the podcast, I spoke with both Jameel Jaffer of the ACLU, who argued the case for the respondents, and Benjamin Powell, former general counsel of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence about the case and the law.
