Thurs, Sep 10 – Will He Go? Trump and the Looming Election Meltdown in 2020
September 10, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
In advance of the 2020 election, legal scholar Lawrence Douglas asks whether our system of constitutional and federal law is prepared to deal with a president who blames an electoral defeat on fraud and so refuses to concede. In his latest book, WILL HE GO? Trump and the Looming Election Meltdown in 2020, Douglas offers an alarming answer: our system is woefully ill-equipped to deal with such a crisis.
Lawrence Douglas is the James J. Grosfeld Professor of Law, Jurisprudence and Social Thought at Amherst College. He is the prize-winning author of seven books, most recently The Right Wrong Man: John Demjanjuk and the Last Great Nazi War Crimes Trial.
