    My Live WCBS Interview with Alan Dershowitz Ahead of Impeachment Trial

    My Live WCBS Interview with Alan Dershowitz Ahead of Impeachment Trial

    ▪ Harvard Law Prof Waffles on Scope of His Role
    ▪ Asserts ‘I’m not a full-fledged member’ of impeachment defense team
    ▪ Claims Sekulow is not conflicted by Parnas Allegations
    ▪ Dershowitz arguably should be considered an expert witness in this case and Dems should get a rebuttal witness.
    ▪ Sekulow should be called to testify on Parnas representation.

    When is a lawyer an advocate and when is he or she a witness? And if a lawyer is a witness, should he or she be allowed to represent their client in that case?

    More specifically, if Senate Leader Mitch McConnell and the Republican majority are not going to allow witnesses at the impeachment trial of President Trump, should two of the President’s lawyers, who arguably fall into the category of witnesses, be allowed to represent him?

    Those issues are central to the live on-air interview I conducted with Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz about his role on President Trump’s impeachment defense team in my 2pm hourly newscast on WCBS Newsradio 880 on Saturday.

    American Hellenic Institute PODCAST #2: AHI board member James Marketos, Esq., recounts a genocide taunt by Turkish soccer fans this year and speaks on the importance of remembering the Smyrna Catastrophe of 1922 and the need to hold Turkey to account for the destruction of the Christian population of the city.

    Columbia Law Prof. John Coffee interviews SEC Commissioner Robert Jackson

    November 15, 2019: Columbia Law Prof. John Coffee interviews SEC Commissioner Robert Jackson about the latest issues of corporate law that the Commission is considering. Commissioner Jackson recently dissented in a partisan 3-2 vote regarding proposed proxy solicitation rules that he says will make it easier for CEOs to spend shareholder money. The Commissioner makes a compelling case for the SEC's role in protecting investors. Among the other topics Professor Coffee brings up are new practices in short selling, the failure of the WeWork IPO, and whether the Commission has the right to seek disgorgement for violations of SEC regulations.

    This interview was conducted at Columbia Law School for the podcast of the Blue Sky Blog, http://clsbluesky.law.columbia.edu, an offering of the law school's Center on Corporate Governance, which Professor Coffee leads. Ren Holding, the Blog's editor, introduces the podcast.

    Track Two Diplomacy with Ambassador Susan Elliott

    Track Two Diplomacy with Ambassador Susan Elliott

    Retired U.S. Ambassador Dr. Susan Elliott tells us that back channel diplomacy is currently going on in ways unimagined by most citizens, through her organization, the National Committee on American Foreign Policy. She became the organization’s President and CEO in August 2018. Officially known as Track II Diplomacy, these closed­-door and off­-the­-record conferences provide opportunities for senior U.S. and foreign officials, subject experts, and scholars to engage in discussions designed to defuse conflict, build confidence, and resolve problems, including recent talks on North Korea.

    Says Ambassador Elliott, “Our organization is playing a critical role at a time when perhaps governments don’t talk to each other, we can help promote dialogue.”

    Ambassador Elliott gives us an inside look into the world of U.S. foreign policy and the current hot spots in the world from the perspective of her 27-year career in the foreign service, where she rose to the rank of U.S. Ambassador to Tajikistan from 2012 to 2015. Dr Elliott also served as Civilian Deputy and Foreign Policy Advisor to the Commander of the United States European Command, as well as Director of the Executive Secretariat Staff of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
