About the Event

Andrew Weissmann and Mary McCord, co-hosts of the MSNBC podcast Prosecuting Donald Trump, will analyze current developments in the four prosecutions pending against the former president. If time permits, given the issues the various trials present in July 2024, they will turn to the plans Trump and various of his spokespersons have laid out to transform the United States Department of Justice that he initiated in his first term. Trump and some conservative legal scholars at the Heritage Foundation, among others, propose to abandon post-Watergate reforms so as to enable the President to control all federal law enforcement decision making. Mr. Weissmann and Ms. McCord, both of whom have extensive experience working in the Justice Department, will address the perils of this conception of Presidential power and the concrete consequences of this transformation of the Justice Department and the FBI. After the program, enjoy complimentary refreshments and light fare at the Meet & Greet Reception. Location: Martin Lipscomb Theatre at the Performing Arts Center (PAC) (Please do not call the PAC to register)
