If you attended the live program; You cannot claim CLE for watching this recorded program.
Our form of government based on three co-equal branches requires each branch to do its part in order for democracy to be successful. Ironically, every so many decades, the Congress calls upon itself to investigate and exercise oversight to perform its constitutional mandate. The mandate is to pass legislation to carry out its powers. The Mueller report has become a household word and the nation is divided on whether Congress should impeach President Trump. The Speaker of the House has said that there needs to be a thorough investigation first. History has shown us the work of Congress in controversies such as the Teapot Dome Scandal, McCarthy Hearings, Watergate Hearings, and Iran-Contra. The Mueller report primarily addresses the role of Russia in the 2016 Presidential Election. This Seminar will address the authority to conduct the investigation, what may happen and what can be the result.
