Impeachment vs. Election: How to Confront a Lawless President
The Trump administration has presented an extraordinary challenge to the normal workings of government and the rule of law. What is to be done? Is impeachment the answer, or should all efforts be directed at defeating him in the 2020 election? ACLU national legal director, journalist, and scholar David Cole (Engines of Liberty: How Citizen Movements Succeed), Pulitzer Prize-winning historian and law professor Annette Gordon-Reed (“Most Blessed of the Patriarchs”: Thomas Jefferson and the Empire of Imagination), and critically-acclaimed nonfiction writer and essayist Brenda Wineapple (The Impeachers: The Trial of Andrew Johnson and the Dream of a Just Nation) will discuss the historical and legal precedents, and future possibilities. Moderated by New York Review of Books co-editor Emily Greenhouse.
