for support of Lawfare's congressional coverage  
Lawfare is a blog dedicated to a non-ideological debate of hard national security choices. With 16 million pageviews last year, Lawfare has cultivated a wide and technically savvy audience and effectively expanded their collective interest in areas beyond traditional security issues. Through this grant, Brookings will hire a fellow-level scholar to elevate the level of discourse on Congress. With expanded capacity and in coordination with existing in-house expertise on congressional process and procedure, Lawfare will begin to consider the responsibilities, failures, and priorities of Congress through this highly technical and non-partisan forum. Such coverage will incorporate a deep understanding of congressional policymaking and a normative view of what the institution is and should be.
