Representative Adriano Espaillat to Host District Impeachment Forum in the Bronx

Thursday, October 24, 2019 - 6:00pm

Representative Adriano Espaillat (NY-13) will host an Impeachment Forum and community ‘Speak Out’ event on Thursday, October 24th at 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. at Vladeck Hall at the Amalgamated Housing Corporation located at 74 Van Cortlandt Park S., Bronx, NY 10463.

 

“As a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, I had the opportunity to participate in several of the impeachment depositions held this week in Congress. We, along with the American public, have learned that the actions of multiple senior national security officials have raised concerns about an ongoing pattern of corruption in the White House and throughout the Trump administration,” said Rep. Espaillat (NY-13).  “We know that it is inappropriate for the President to pressure a foreign country to undermine our elections, and we know that we must follow the facts to hold him accountable for doing so.”

 

During the discussion, Rep. Espaillat will be joined by special guest Jamal Greene, the Dwight Professor of Law at Columbia Law School. Professor Greene’s scholarship focuses on the structure of legal and constitutional argument. He is the author of more than 30 law review articles and is a frequent media commentator on the Supreme Court and on constitutional law. Professor Greene has served as a law clerk to the Honorable Guido Calabresi on the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and for the Honorable John Paul Stevens on the U.S. Supreme Court.

 

This event is open to the press.
