Profs & Pints: Understanding the Mueller Report
September 9 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm UTC+0$2 – $12
Profs & Pints presents: “Understanding the Mueller Report,” with Randall D. Eliason, law professor, white-collar crime expert, Washington Post columnist, and former Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia and chief of that office’s public-corruption section.
The public has finally gotten a look at the report resulting from the two-year investigation led by Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller, III, into Russian interference with the 2016 election. But the 450-page document left many questions unanswered and seemed to satisfy almost no one. Moreover, Mueller’s much-anticipated testimony on Capitol Hill landed with a bit of a thud and seemed destined to change few minds.
Come hear the Mueller report and its implications discussed by former federal prosecutor Randall D. Eliason, who previously has wowed sold-out Profs and Pints crowds with his incredibly informative and engaging talks on the Mueller investigation.
Having combed the report with an expert eye, he’ll go beyond the legalese and behind the redactions, and get at the actual findings that have seen been obscured by politicians’ and pundits’ spin.
Professor Eliason will discuss what Mueller really determined about “collusion” with the Russians, whether President Trump obstructed justice and why Mueller declined to make that call, and the role played by Attorney General William Barr. He’ll talk about who was charged, who was let off the hook, and why. And he’ll address key questions such as, “Can a sitting president be indicted?” and “Why didn’t Mueller subpoena the president?” You’ll have a chance to ask your own questions at the end.
