If you are a political junky who is often overwhelmed by all of the commentators conjecturing about what is happening in Washington, D.C., then join us for this public policy seminar. We will look at the polarization of our political system and explore interpretation of the Constitution in that climate, including a basic civics lesson on the theory and reality of separation of powers. Included in the discussion will be a focus on criminal issues - subpoena powers; who has what authority to investigate the conduct of government officials; the interplay between state and federal prosecution powers; the potential indictment of government officials; and what it means to be charged with “obstruction of justice.” Bring your questions and comments to our panel of political analysts and Constitutional law scholars and find out what’s happening in this era of Constitutional Confusion!
