Good Law | Bad Law #115 - Why We Need A “Special” Prosecutor W/ Andrew Coan

Why do we even need a Special Prosecutor?

 

Aaron Freiwald, Managing Partner of Freiwald Law and host of the weekly podcast Good Law | Bad Law, is joined by Professor Andrew Coan, from the University of Arizona to talk about the history and importance of the Special Prosecutor.

 

Over the past two years many of us have become familiar with the concept of a Special Prosecutor thanks to Robert Mueller’s investigation into Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia connections. But what isn’t obvious is, why we need a special prosecutor in the first place? Andrew just released a book called “Prosecuting the President” that talks about the role of the Special Prosecutor and the various times a Special Prosecutor has been appointed since the role was first created under President Ulysses S. Grant.

 

Join us today to learn more about the role of the Special Prosecutor, the powers he possesses, and how they’ve been utilized throughout history.
