We’re not a biweekly show, we promise! It just seems that way sometimes…like this week, when we are bringing you:

  1. Discussing the passing of Justice Ginsburg and potential implications of the Amy Coney Barrett nomination for national security and rule of law cases
  2. Breaking down the separate opinions enjoining IEEPA sanctions against WeChat (on First Amendment grounds) and TikTok (on IEEPA exception grounds)
  3. The FISC’s 2019 Section 702 certification opinion and ongoing issues of compliance
  4. The Ninth Circuit’s Moalin decision (finding statutory and Fourth Amendment problems with Section 215 bulk metadata collection)
  5. Trump’s taxes: could someone with that sort of debt normally get a security clearance?
  6. Annals of the Bowe Berghdahl case: a military judge who had an eye on an immigration judgeship
  7. A new judge for the 9/11 trial

But skip all that if you are in the middle of debate prep, for we also have…a BINGO CARD for the debate!
