On April 23, Benjamin Wittes hosted a panel discussion at the Brookings Institution unpacking what we learned from the redacted version of the Mueller report. The panel featured Susan Hennessey, Chuck Rosenberg and Margaret Taylor.

I'm happy to report that U.S. Cyber Command will host its sixth annual legal conference from March 4–7, and that some seats may still be available.
