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. They discussed the factual record Mueller established on Russian interference and collusion, whether the president's conduct constitutes obstruction of justice and how Congress and the American people might react to the report.

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. The title is "Achieving and Maintaining Cyberspace Superiority," and it is consciously framed as not just a CYBERCOM but also an interagency (and international) production.

The idea was to provide a deep dive into a select set of relevant topics, assuming no prior technical knowledge on the part of any attendees (many attendees knew a great deal about the legal and policy aspects of this topic, but not the technical side).
