What's Next? After the Mueller Report


Listen to recording

On April 29, ACS hosted a discussion of the recently released Mueller Report.

As we continue to digest Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Report on the Investigation into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election, serious legal questions remain regarding Congress’s power to subpoena a sitting president, the alleged legal impediments that prevented Mueller from indicting Trump associates for campaign finance violations, and what the law of obstruction actually provides. These questions take on more importance as we ask, what comes next? As talk of impeachment surfaces in both Democratic and Republican circles, what do we know about the meaning of “high crimes and misdemeanors”?
