The Justice Department launched a team in December 2023 to look into allegations of war crimes committed during Russia's war in Ukraine. The team isn't limited to looking only at that conflict, though — but in the months since the conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza, the DOJ has been nearly silent on the topic of possible war crimes there.

This podcast: political correspondent Sarah McCammon, justice correspondent Ryan Lucas, and national security correspondent Greg Myre.

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