Congress is nearing a vote on the impeachment of President Donald Trump. The potential impeachment of a sitting President raises profound Constitutional questions: What is the burden of proof required to overturn an election? How should Congress confront alleged abuses of power that endanger democracy itself? What is a fair process if the President is put on trial?

Join us for this MSNBC special event, as anchor and chief legal correspondent Ari Melber leads a public discussion with Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, and renowned legal experts on the emerging impeachment case against Pres.Trump; his available defenses; and the Constitutional dilemmas facing Congress and the nation.

The event is sold-out, but will be available as a podcast.

Doors open at 6:30 PM

Event begins at 7:30 PM

Also featuring expert legal analysis by John Flannery, Maya Wiley, Berit Berger, and John Malcolm.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
