John Eastman joins the Power Line Show 1.22.20
Senior Fellow John Eastman joins a panel discussion on the nature of impeachment in light of the Constitution and American history.
Dr. John Eastman is Founding Director of the Claremont Institute’s Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence and Senior Fellow of the Claremont Institute.
Judges must navigate between interpreting the Constitution and statutes, working within existing precedents and applying both bodies of law to particular cases. Striking this balance has policy consequences that render the Supreme Court a political branch in the public's mind. As the heated debate of Justice Antonin Scalia's replacement demonstrates, the Court is no longer seen as the "least dangerous branch." How should justices address this tension in their decisions and opinions? Can the Court return to a narrower vision of its judicial duty? If not, what judicial philosophy best fits the reality of the Court's role in a self-governing republic? Claremont's John Eastman joins an expert panel at the American Enterprise Institute to answer these questions and more. (Dr. Eastman's presentation begins at 65:09.)
Dr. John C. Eastman is joined by Andrew McCarthy and J. Christian Adams discuss the Jennings v. Rodriquez case as well as Sessions v. Dimaya. There will also be an update on the Trump v. International Refugee Assistance Project case. Later in the podcast there will be a discussion on the Gill v. Whitford partisan gerrymandering case.
In a new podcast series, Dr. Spencer Klavan sits down with authors from the Claremont Review of Books to discuss the ideas driving conservative intellectual life.
Charles Kesler, Mark Lilla, Heather Mac Donald, and Ryan Williams examine the political and moral threat of identity politics and the means necessary to reinstate and protect the motto on which our republic stands: e pluribus unum. Claremont hosted this panel on November 9, 2017 at the Harvard Club in NYC.
