We bring you a special episode, recorded jointly with Ben Wittes as an episode of the Lawfare Podcast. Ben, Bobby and Steve explore the threatened invocation of the Insurrection Act by President Trump, the president’s existing use of the D.C. National Guard, the president’s assertion that he will designate Antifa as a “domestic terrorist organization” and the use of tear gas and rubber bullets to clear protesters out of Lafayette Square Park in order to facilitate a presidential photo op.
