What are "high crimes and misdemeanors," anyway? And, beyond the headlines, how is this all going to play out? Don't miss this conversation!

About this Event

No matter where you turn for news, you'll be seeing and hearing a lot about impeachment in the weeks ahead. It's a complex, confusing, and rarely straightforward process – with just a handful of historical examples to guide us. Join us in conversation with Scott Barker, a Rhodes Scholar, former military officer, and trial lawyer of forty years who's written the book(s) on the topic.

Drinks at 5:30, discussion at 6:30. Open to all!

About Scott Barker

Scott S. Barker is a 1970 distinguished graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy and has a Masters Degree in Russian History from Oxford University, England, where he studied as a Rhodes Scholar. He then served as an Air Force intelligence officer for five years, including tours of duty in Southeast Asia and the Pentagon. In 1978, he resigned his commission in the Air Force and attended Harvard Law School, from which he graduated with honors in 1981. He has practiced as a civil trial lawyer in Denver for the past 38 years and is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers.

He is the author of Impeachment: A Political Sword, which was published by History Publishing Company in October, 2018, and the follow-up book, The Impeachment Quagmire: Military Intelligence Officer Turned Attorney Deciphers the Mueller Report. He is currently working on a book about the war powers of Congress and the President under the Constitution.

Scott has a long-standing passion for the Constitution. For example, between 2005 and 2010, he led a team of Denver-based pro bono lawyers who participated in the historic representation of five of the hundreds of Guantanamo Bay detainees in their evidentiary hearings in federal court in Washington, D.C. to test the constitutional propriety of their detention. This representation included multiple trips to the Guantanamo prison to meet with their clients, appearances in federal trial and appellate courts, and a trip to a refugee facility in Tirana, Albania. Along with the hundreds of other pro bono lawyers from around the country representing other detainees, he worked extensively with the constitutional issues that became the subject of four United States Supreme Court cases.
