Granted, it’s not Days of Future Past, but our episode 141 is still pretty good! This week, Professors Vladeck and Chesney discuss and debate:

  • The al-Baghdadi raid (and misunderstandings about Congressional notification)
  • A GTMO habeas decision in Abdulrazzaq
  • Who will be the next Secretary of Homeland Security? Debating the authority of an Acting Secretary to alter the order of succession at slots #4 onward…
  • Trumplandia & Impeachment: What to make of the decision to vote on authorizing the inquiry after all? And is anyone left waiting to be persuaded one way or the other?

Frivolity, inevitably, covers the World Series (especially the controversy from Game 6), with some GoT for spice along the way!
