About the Event
Drawing on his unique perspective from serving as a senior member of Special Counsel Mueller’s team, a former FBI General Counsel, and a long-time white collar prosecutor, Mr. Weissmann will discuss the perils and challenges of investigating and prosecuting Donald J. Trump. He will explore the status of the various state and federal criminal and civil investigations and cases— including legal and factual issues involved in bringing certain charges, venue issues about where to bring those charges, and the national security implications of and debates about bringing certain charges. He will also address the challenges of the Special Counsel rules in conducting a federal investigation and bringing charges. He will explore ways those rules can be improved to deal with the difficult issue of how a member of the executive branch can investigate itself or former executive branch members.
