This week, we talk about what Paul Manafort's fraud trial tells us, and doesn't tell us, about l'Affaire Russe; the tussle between executive and legislative authority in the new National Defense Authorization Act; and the end of Peter Strzok's FBI career.

Plus, Ben doubles up on objects this week: a new Lawfare article by Jim Baker, and a new study of sextortion by Lawfare Intern Katie Kelly.

And Scott recommends a new book that brings old photographs, and the stories they tell, to life in full color.
