Almost as soon as the police killing of George Floyd brought crowds to the streets across the United States, and urged federal prosecutors to pursue charges against protestors who allegedly damaged property or provoked violence. Many U.S. attorney’s offices obliged: Within weeks, the federal government brought more than 120 different cases against protestors for a range of crimes, as by the Prosecution Project at Miami University in Ohio. Although this tally includes prosecutions against members of , of these cases concern defendants who were protesting George Floyd’s death and who face charges for relatively minor offenses—such as,, and. The Department of Justice’s aggressive stance implicates two separate constraints that guide federal pr.
You've heard a lot about COVID-19 and its effects in the United States, China and East Asia, Europe and Brazil. But what about the Middle East, South Asia and Africa?

To discuss it all, David Priess sat down with Mona Yacoubian, a senior advisor on Syria, the Middle East and North Africa at the United States Institute of Peace; Nilanthi Samaranayake, the director of the Strategy and Policy Analysis Program at CNA with expertise on Indian Ocean and South Asia security; and Judd Devermont, the director of the Africa Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies and a former national intelligence officer for Africa.
Editor’s Note: Wuhan is now known as ground zero for the coronavirus, but 50 years ago it was also at the center of China’s disastrous Cultural Revolution. Rand Corp.’s Andrew Scobell draws parallels between then and now, highlighting both the high levels of uncertainty and how the Chinese Communist Party, as before, remains firmly in control. Daniel Byman. ***. Fifty-three years ago this month, the People’s Republic of China was in the midst of the , and Wuhan was ground zero for murderous pitched battles between armed factions in the streets of cities across the country. In 2020 Wuhan has once again taken center stage as the epicenter of a contagion sweeping not just China but the world. But this is not the 1960s, when ; this time the expor.

President Trump’s commutation of the prison sentence of his long-time confidante Roger Stone is wholly unsurprising. Indeed, given Trump’s repeated teasing of the matter over the life of the case against Stone, it would have been something of surprise had he not intervened so that his felonious friend was spared time behind bars. But the predictable nature of Trump’s action should not obscure its rank corruption. In fact, the predictability makes the commutation all the more corrupt, the capstone of an all-but-open attempt on the president’s part to obstruct justice in a self-protective fashion over a protracted period of time. That may sound like hyperbole, but it’s actually not. Trump publicly encouraged Stone not to cooperate with Robert.
Donald Trump’s commutation yesterday of Roger Stone’s sentence was his most controversial exercise of the pardon power to date. The Stone commutation fit a pattern: Almost all of the beneficiaries of Trump’s pardons and commutations have had. a personal or political connection to the president. This general pattern is. . But we examined publicly available information to try to get some precise numbers. The result is. . We considered whether Trump’s pardons and commutations can be explained by one or more of four criteria: (1) Did it advance a clear political goal of the president?; (2) Did the person who was pardoned have a personal connection to Trump or someone Trump knows well?; (3) Was the person who was pardoned brought to the President’s.
Ruling in Trump v. Mazars on July 9, the Supreme Court held that courts must take into account separation of powers concerns in resolving disputes over congressional subpoenas seeking personal information of the president. The court found that the split panels at the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the and the had failed to adequately account for “weighty” separation of powers considerations when rejecting challenges to House committee subpoenas seeking financial records relating to President Trump, his affiliated business entities and his family members. In a 7-2 decision authored by Chief Justice John G. Roberts, the Supreme Court vacated the judgments below and remanded to the district courts for further proceedings. (The court also ruled in
On June 26, the New York Times that Russian military intelligence (known as the GRU) had paid bounties to the Taliban in exchange for Taliban fighters targeting and killing U.S. and coalition forces. Other news organizations quickly that U.S. military and intelligence agencies not only had obtained evidence of the program but also had been the Trump administration about the program for months. Much of the subsequent reporting has focused on the questions of what President Trump and his inner circle knew about the program and when they knew it. But less has been written about why Russia would take such a provocative step in the first place. Some of the reactions from U.S. policymakers to news about the bounty program have had a distinctly Am.
No technology is as profoundly important to the global economy as the internet, which is dependent on the security of a of some 750,000 miles of seabed cables that criss-cross the oceans’ depths. The interdependence of global submarine communication systems means that a break in one cable can have on internet access to distant states. While the rules to protect this critical infrastructure in peacetime , the need to further develop the rules to secure this global infrastructure during periods of armed conflict is perhaps even more compelling. Although several peacetime treaties protect submarine cables from disruption and criminal acts, albeit weakly, the rules that apply during naval war are even more antiquated. Because the law of naval w.
President Trump went to the Supreme Court asking the justices to protect him from subpoenas for his financial records—subpoenas from congressional committees and subpoenas from a New York state grand jury. He didn’t get the shield against accountability that he sought. In the New York case, he lost decisively. In his higher-profile battle with Congress, the court sought a middle ground, and it found one on a broad 7-to-2 vote. Who precisely gets to claim this middle ground as victory remains to be seen. The court was by no means heedless of President Trump’s expressed concerns about congressional harassment of a president. Indeed, the justices showed a notable sensitivity to the separation of powers issues that might arise when Congress see.
The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that New York prosecutors can access President Trump’s financial records, the New York Times. Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in the majority opinion, “no citizen, not even the president, is categorically above the common duty to produce evidence when called upon in a criminal proceeding.” In a related decision, the Supreme Court decided the lower courts did not sufficiently consider the separation of powers issues brought into focus by congressional subpoenas for President Trump’s financial records. Experts have noted that neither ruling is likely to mean that President Trump will reveal his records to the public before the November election. The Supreme Court also ruled Thursday that nearly half of the st.
