November 9, 2017

Episode Notes:

Melanie Marlowe, a Fellow at Carnegie Mellon University’s Institute for Strategy and Politics, talks with Jason about last week’s Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing to get the Trump Administration’s views on the 2001 and 2002 Authorizations for the Use of Military Force. Melanie discusses the issues some senators have with the existing AUMFs for current operations, why she’s pessimistic about a new authorization, and the president’s Article II powers.
