Political Probe

Political Probe


As President Trump faces an impeachment inquiry for asking the Ukrainian president to investigate political rival Joe Biden, the White House is denying access to key witnesses and documents. Will the move to stonewall Congress lead to an obstruction charge? How will the proceedings affect the 2020 election? And what will the long term effects be for both Republicans and Democrats? 

Hofstra experts who can address different aspects of this complicated issue include:

--James Sample, an expert on constitutional law, who was featured in a Business Insider story examining the legal issues at play in President Trump’s dealings with Ukraine. 

--Meena Bose, political science professor and presidential studies scholar, who spoke with the Washington Post  about President Trump's attempts to sway the public narrative about the Democrats' impeachment inquiry against him. 

--Mark Lukasiewicz, veteran television executive and dean of the Lawrence Herbert School of Communication, who was most recently quoted in The New York Times and Variety about the challenges that news organizations now face in live coverage of the Trump administration.   

--Grant Saff, professor and chair of the Department of Global Studies and Geography, who was a guest on WSHU Public Radio’s talk show, “The Full Story.” He was part of a conversation that covered a number of important issues including the Ukrainian crisis.
