On Conflicts of Interest #20, Will and Kyle go over a new bill introduced by Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) that would overhaul the World War I-era Espionage Act, which has been used to target journalists and whistleblowers as enemy spies. Gabbard’s legislation would allow suspects a better chance to defend themselves in court and expand protections for whistleblowers.

The US carried out a series of airstrikes on Taliban targets in Afghanistan over the weekend, in what appears to be a violation of the deal signed with the militant group in February.

The Trump administration is set to carry out three major arms sales to Taiwan in the coming weeks, including truck-mounted rocket launchers and air-to-ground cruise missiles. The sales come as the latest in a flurry of large weapons deals with the island break-away state, moves sure to enrage Beijing.
