The Separation of Powers Under Duress: Is Congress Still a Coequal Branch?
The U.S. Constitution manifests an inherent tension between the branches of government. In this annual forum, our presenters will explore several timely issues related to the Constitution. Professor John Evans will discuss the President’s assertion of his “emergency powers,” while Professor Leigh Bradberry will examine Congress’ power to investigate and the President’s refusal to submit to that power (resisting subpoenas, ordering officials not to testify, etc.)
