At this Forum, former federal prosecutors Mary McCord and Andrew Weissmann recorded an episode of the popular MSNBC podcast they co-host, Prosecuting Donald Trump. Each episode features McCord (now at Georgetown Law) and Weissmann (a professor of practice at NYU Law) dissecting the latest developments in one or more of the four pending criminal cases against the former president. And during this episode, they’ll be talking to a special guest: NYU Law Professor and Dean Emeritus Trevor Morrison, who as a practitioner in the White House and constitutional law scholar will draw from his deep expertise on the executive branch. Time will also be allowed for questions from the audience.

This event is co-hosted by the Reiss Center on Law and Security.
