Joshua Geltzer was quoted in the New York Times on the Trump administration's consideration of sending Sayfullo Saipov to Guantánamo:

Doing so would infuriate career national security professionals and disrupt a carefully-honed approach to handling terrorism suspects, said Joshua A. Geltzer, a former Justice Department attorney. That includes the F.B.I.’s policy of delaying terror suspects’ Miranda warning rights to remain silent and have a defense lawyer during initial interrogations, he said.
“The F.B.I. would lose its mind” if Mr. Trump transferred Mr. Saipov to military custody, said Mr. Geltzer, who served as senior director for counterterrorism at the National Security Council during the Obama administration. Invoking Jim Mattis, the secretary of defense, Mr. Geltzer added: “Why would Mattis want this headache?”
