Tampering with Justice: DOJ Drops Case Against Michael Flynn
Hammer Forum is made possible by the Rosenbloom Family
At the direction of Attorney General Bill Barr, the Department of Justice moved to dismiss charges against Michael Flynn, President Trump's former national security advisor. Flynn was charged with, and plead guilty to, lying to members of the FBI about his dealings with a Russian ambassador during Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. What does this decision mean for the future of law enforcement in the United States? Moderator and Loyola Law School professor Jessica Levinson is joined by professors and legal commentators the Honorable Joyce A.W. Vance and Yale lecturer Asha Rangappa.
Hammer Forum is an ongoing series of timely, thought-provoking events addressing social and political issues.
