What to expect. What not to expect. What comes next.
A conversation with DAVID SLOSS, John A. and Elizabeth H. Sutro Professor of Law, Santa Clara University School of Law Robert Mueller is scheduled to testify before Congress on July 17. Democrats appear to be hoping he’ll drop a bombshell. Republicans will try to attack him and the investigation. They’re both probably getting it wrong. For this installment of Other Voices, we take a close look at what the Mueller report actually says about Russian meddling and Trump’s obstruction. We examine what to expect when Mueller testifies and, perhaps more importantly, what not to expect. And we discuss where Congress needs to focus after the testimony.
Professor David Sloss is an internationally renowned scholar with expertise in constitutional law, international law, and criminal law. He has published three books and a few dozen law review articles on a wide variety of legal and public policy topics. His scholarship is informed by a decade of experience in the federal government, where he worked on various international security issues.
Professor Sloss is currently writing a book on information warfare. Here’s a recent op-ed essay about the Mueller report written by Prof. Sloss: Prosecuting a President for Obstruction of Justice: A Primer https://www.scu.edu/ethics/all-about-…
