A bipartisan group of legal experts is sounding an alarm about presidential power this election season. They're pushing Congress to update a 150 year old law, and limit how the White House can deploy the military on American soil, in case a future president takes advantage of that sweeping power.

Plus, three Democratic presidents take New York to raise money for November's election; Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. picks a running mate; and, Can't Let It Go.

This podcast: White House correspondent Deepa Shivaram, national justice correspondent Carrie Johnson, political correspondent Ashley Lopez, and senior political editor and correspondent Domenico Montanaro.

This podcast was produced by Jeongyoon Han & Kelli Wessinger, and edited by Casey Morell. Our executive producer is Muthoni Muturi.
