Trigger Warning: No Person Is Above the Law (Or, Why the Attorney General’s Constitutional Law Professor Laurence Tribe Thinks Trump Is Guilty)

Location: Washington, D.C.
Summary
A commander-in-chief who’d lost his bid to a second term, a lame duck waddling to the finish line between election day, November 3, 2020, and the joint session of Congress’s certification on January 6, 2021, could have done serious damage to a republic blindsided by a conspiracy to defraud the American electorate.
This essay is part of our four-part series entitled “Bullshit,” after Attorney General Bill Barr’s response to the January 6th commission about what he actually thought of Trump’s election fraud claims. Read the first two essays, “Gaslighting the Vice President” and “Bully, Inc.” Watch the full interview with Laurence Tribe and Nancy Gertner on historic Jan. 6 hearing testimony and the future of the Supreme Court here.

Beamed into the Boston Public Library via video link, the evening broadcast featured Harvard emeritus Professor of Constitutional Law, Laurence Tribe, and Senior Lecturer at Harvard Law School, Professor of Practice and former federal judge, Nancy Gertner. In addition to commenting on recent Supreme Court decisions, the two touched upon key components of a hearing still threatened by the former president’s warning that he might run again.

Even as Trump continues to stoke the Big Lie at a volume that indicates he isn’t yet tired of going to the mat in defense of fraud, the Trump-o-sphere crackles with the belief that the 2020 elections were a massive swindle. To win back what was never meant to be yanked from an establishment bent on preserving the status quo ante, Democrats would go to any length, say his followers, even stealing an election that the former president had signaled would be stolen.
