Insiders to discuss 2nd Trump impeachment trial

By The Associated Press

BRISTOL, R.I. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse and U.S. Rep. David Cicilline are scheduled to share their insiders' take on the second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump.

The Rhode Island Democrats will appear at an online program hosted by Roger Williams University School of Law on Tuesday evening titled “Incitement, Insurrection, and Impeachment: Inside the Second Trump Impeachment Trial.”

The program also includes nationally recognized constitutional law expert Michael Gerhardt, special counsel to the impeachment trial’s presiding officer, Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy.

The program will feature commentary on the trial itself as well as a discussion of its ramifications for the future of the Senate, impeachment, the presidency, the Constitution and the rule of law in the United States.

Roger Williams Law Dean Gregory Bowman will introduce and close the event.

“The second impeachment trial will affect our country for generations to come,” Bowman said in a statement. “This program will offer an up-close and in-depth view of a watershed moment in our history."

Roger Williams Law is the event’s host and primary sponsor. Emory University School of Law in Atlanta, and Wake Forest University School of Law in North Carolina are co-sponsors.

The event is open to the public with registration, but only law students from the three sponsoring schools will be allowed to participate in a question-and-answer session after the event.
