About this Episode

Where federal courts, national security, and subtle but important problems lurk, you’ll find Steve Vladeck explaining things. Steve joins us to talk about a seemingly narrow question of the proper application a statute prohibiting civil-office holding by military officers. The issue, though, could hardly be more far-reaching, asking us to consider the principles of civilian control of the military and military non-control of civil life. Also, a little on the use of “treason” to describe the allegations of the Trump campaign’s collusion with Russian operatives and Flynn’s work for Turkey.
