by Adam J. Whitevia National Affairs
Wednesday, January 18, 2017

In the concluding essay for a short book published by National Affairs, Hoover Institution fellow Adam White proposes a number of significant reforms to the laws governing federal agencies’ regulatory activities and the laws governing judicial review of those regulatory activities.

by Henry I. Miller, Drew L. Kershenvia Project Syndicate
Tuesday, January 17, 2017

By the time you read this, a firestorm may—or may not—be breaking out over President Obama’s decision to commute Chelsea Manning’s sentence. We’re not sure what the reaction is likely to be, to be honest. Predictably many of Manning’s supporters are jubilant.

It is astonishing to watch the current confrontation between US intelligence agencies and Donald Trump.
