On October 3, Benjamin Wittes co-hosted an event with his Brookings colleague, Norm Eisen, on The State of Rule of Law in the U.S. Ben moderated a panel on national security and law enforcement with Lawfare contributor and long-time Department of Justice official Mary McCord; former head of the DEA Chuck Rosenberg; and Representative Adam Schiff, ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee.

They spoke about the impact of today’s political environment on national security investigations in the Executive Branch, Congress’s conduct in this recent spate of such investigations, and how—under normal circumstances—these two branches are supposed to interact.
