Event description
HJS is delighted to invite you to John Bellinger's talk about legal aspects of the US impeachment proceedings as well as Qassem Soleimani

About this Event

The start of 2020 has been busy for President Trump and Trump Administration lawyers. The U.S. drone attack on January 3 that killed Qasem Soleimani has raised numerous questions under U.S. and international law. Twelve days later, the U.S. House of Representatives delivered articles of impeachment to the U.S. Senate, charging President Trump with abuse of his office and obstruction of Congress. The Senate’s trial of President Trump began on January 21.  

The Henry Jackson Society is delighted to invite you to a fascinating talk where John Bellinger, formerly the Legal Adviser to the Department of State and the National Security Council in the George W. Bush Administration, will discuss legal aspects of the U.S. impeachment proceedings as well as the killing of Soleimani. He will also review the Trump Administration’s approach to international law over the last three years. Mr. Bellinger served as counsel for U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor in the impeachment proceedings.

SPEAKER: 

John B. Bellinger III

Partner, Arnold & Porter, 

Co-head, Global Law and Policy Practice,

Adjunct Senior Fellow in International and National Security Law, Council on Foreign Relations
