Profs & Pints: Understanding the Mueller Investigation
In a special encore talk, Profs and Pints presents: Understanding the Mueller Investigation, 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 offices public-corruption section.
The recently-concluded investigation by Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller, III was the most consequential legal and political proceeding since Watergate. Mueller was charged with investigating Russian attempts to influence the 2016 presidential election and the possible involvement of members of the Trump campaign. For nearly two years there was a nonstop stream of indictments, guilty pleas, and breaking news, as the investigation appeared to move closer and closer to president Trumps inner circle and people like Paul Manafort, Michael Cohen, and Roger Stone became household names. But the investigation ultimately concluded with no finding of criminal misconduct by the president.
Join white-collar crime expert and former federal prosecutor Randall D. Eliason for a fun and informative overview of the history and findings of the Mueller investigation. Hell discuss how the investigation began and what it means to be a Special Counsel. Hell review the major players, including those who were charged and those who were under suspicion. Hell look at the key criminal statutes that were implicated, including conspiracy and obstruction of justice, and discuss whether Rudy Giuliani is correct when he claims that collusion is not a crime.
The talk will examine the cases brought by Mueller, including the two major indictments of Russian actors charged with interfering with the election, as well as the cases that have spun off from the Mueller investigation, such as the hush money payoffs to Stormy Daniels.
We'll conclude with a wrap-up of Mueller's conclusions and a look at what may lie ahead for the various other investigations surrounding the president.
