Gist: What’s Next for Travel Ban 2.0

Slate senior legal correspondent Dahlia Lithwick walks us through the next steps for Donald Trump’s revised travel ban. Some judges may not use Trump’s campaign rhetoric in their rulings; however, “Every time Trump opens his mouth, he makes it harder,” says Lithwick. She also discusses next week's confirmation hearings of Neil Gorsuch. Besides covering the courts for Slate, Lithwick is the host of the Amicus podcast. 

In the Spiel, it’s Lobstar time. 

For this week's NOTBAT, a gem of an outtake from an interview with John Darnielle.
