Midnight in Washington Webpage Banner

The congressman who led the first impeachment of Donald Trump offers an inside account of American democracy in its darkest hour — and a warning that the forces of autocracy released by Trump remain as potent as ever. In his new book, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) argues that the Trump presidency has so weakened our institutions and compromised the Republican Party that the peril will last for years.

Join the John Brademas Center of New York University and the Brennan Center for Justice as Brennan Center President Michael Waldman interviews Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. The congressman will take us inside his team of impeachment managers, their desperate defense of the Constitution, and the disastrous culmination of Trump’s presidency on January 6, as armed rioters invaded the Capitol.

Registration is required in order to receive the log-in details for this webinar. Please note this session may be recorded.
