Merrick Garland's Had A Lot On His Plate
Play • 16 min
The Department of Justice this week announced war crimes charges against four Russian soldiers for alleged torture of an American citizen in Ukraine, and the arrest of a former U.S. ambassador on charges of working for Cuban intelligence services. Both of these come after last week's arrest of a man allegedly plotting to kill an American citizen at the behest of a government official in India. We look at each of the cases.

This episode: political correspondent Susan Davis, justice correspondent Ryan Lucas, and national political correspondent Mara Liasson.

This episode was edited by Casey Morell. It was produced by Jeongyoon Han. Our executive producer is Muthoni Muturi.
