Presidential Jeopardy

Regardless of the midterm election’s outcome, the fate of Donald Trump’s presidency is still tied to special counsel Robert Muller’s ongoing probe. Democratic takeover of either house of Congress will intensify the scrutiny. On Thursday, November 15, an esteemed group of Constitutional scholars will join a National Press Club Headliners panel discussion to consider the following questions:

  • What would Democrats do with subpoena power if they win the House, the Senate or both?
  • Will the Democrats attempt to impeach the president?
  • Can a sitting president be indicted?
  • And would his cabinet attempt to remove him from office if his erratic behavior continues?
  •  

Panelists will include:

  • Jennifer Daskal, Associate Professor of Law at American University Washington College of Law
  • Susan Low Bloch, Professor of Law at Georgetown Law
  • Jonathan Turley, Professor of Law at George Washington University Law School
  • Jack Quinn, former White House Counsel to President Clinton
  • Richard Ben-Veniste, former prosecutor with the Watergate Special Prosecutor's office
  •  

This news conference is open to credentialed media and members of the National Press Club free of charge, however registration is required.
