Well, we’re back again this week. Why? 2018, that’s why!

Seriously, lot’s to discuss:

  1. A deep-dive into the draft 2018 AUMF from Sens. Bob Corker (R.-Tenn.) and Tim Kaine (D.-Va.). Tune in for a very detailed review and debate.
  2. Meanwhile, Doe v. Mattis has suddenly moved into high gear. Looks like a transfer may be in the works, but we predict weeks of further litigation.
  3. The Supreme Court has figured out what to do next in Microsoft and has issued an interesting void-for-vagueness ruling.
  4. And President Trump has decided not to issue the new Russia sanctions that U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley recently foreshadowed.

Hopefully that is it for this week!
