Culper Rule of Law Series: Judge John Bates
Something a little different on the podcast today: the launch of a special series—the Culper Partners Rule of Law Series. David Kris and Nates Jones, the founders of the Culper Partners consulting firm, have recorded a limited-edition podcast series exploring various aspects of the rule of law, particularly as it relates to U.S. national security and criminal law enforcement. Over the course of several episodes, which we will be dropping into the Lawfare Podcast feed over the coming weeks and months, David and Nate examine topics including legislative and judicial oversight of the executive branch, the rule of law in counterterrorism, the relationship between law, economic security, and national security, foreign relations and the rule of law, and law and politics. Each episode features an interview with a current or former senior government official, or a leader in the private sector. In this first episode, Nate and David talk with Judge John Bates, Senior Judge on the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. Judge Bates has had a long and distinguished career in government and private practice, including work at two private law firms, as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in DC, and as Deputy Independent Counsel in the Whitewater investigation. Most recently, from 2013 to 2015, he was Director of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts. Judge Bates became a federal judge in 2001, and from 2006 to 2013 he served on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, where he was the court’s Presiding Judge beginning in 2009.

Audio extremes most annoying. One person sounds as if shouting, followed by another indecipherable soto voce. Your content is too important to have such volume imbalances.

Feels like the loose threads are starting to come together. Can't quite see the full picture yet, but...feels like we will get there.

Thoughtful, reasoned discussions and topics presented in detail. Truly a gold standard for parsing today's morass. Exceptional podcast.

Why is nobody talking about Trump trying to arrange the financing through the Russian bank VTB under sanctions by the US? That is the biggest crime.

Guns are not pointed at anyone in Hungary and far from declining Hungary is finally rising again, democracy and all. Professor Papp is part of the movement bent on unravelling humanity and he's funded by Gyorgy Soros's warchest.

"On the other hand, it will be equally forgotten, that the vigor of Government is essential to the security of liberty; that, in the contemplation of a sound and well-informed judgment, their interest can never be separated; and that a dangerous ambition more often lurks behind the specious mask of zeal for the rights of the people, than under the forbidding appearance of zeal for the firmness and efficiency of Government. History will teach us, that the former has been found a much more certain road to the introduction of despotism, than the latter; and that of those men who have overturned the liberties of republics the greatest number have begun their career, by paying an obsequious court to the people; commencing Demagogues, and ending Tyrants." Federalist paper number one. I think the founders had our present situation more clearly in mind than most of our current thought leaders did a year ago. Politics of demagoguery undermining trust in institutions and potentially resulting in tyranny.

Lawfare has good content but the audio quality is poor. They need a sound engineer to deal with the ever-changing volume of various speakers.

If you are going to have a show of hands about a proposition, for purposes of a podcast it helps to announce the results rather than just muse "...interesting"
