This week on Versus Trump, Jason and Easha discuss a recent decision reversing President Trump's attempt to de-protect Arctic Ocean waters and permit drilling in the Great White North. As usual, you can listen online below, and subscribe via this page with any podcast player or here in iTunes. 

They begin by discussing the legal regime governing leases and protection of waters in the Outer Continental Shelf. They then talk about how and why President Obama protected a large swath of land at the end of his Administration, and then they delve into whether President Trump may undo that. The leads into a deep discussion about whether the power to "from time to time withdraw" certain lands from leasing also includes the power to reverse a withdrawal. They end with a Trump nugget highlighting a stunning fact about the Trump Administration's recent success rate in court.
