Midnight in Washington: A Conversation with Rep. Adam Schiff

The congress­man who led the first impeach­ment of Donald Trump offers an inside account of Amer­ican demo­cracy in its darkest hour — and a warn­ing that the forces of auto­cracy released by Trump remain as potent as ever. In his new book, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) argues that the Trump pres­id­ency has so weakened our insti­tu­tions and comprom­ised the Repub­lican Party that the peril will last for years.

Join us as Bren­nan Center Pres­id­ent Michael Wald­man inter­views Schiff, chair­man of the House Intel­li­gence Commit­tee. The congress­man will take us inside his team of impeach­ment managers, their desper­ate defense of the Consti­tu­tion, and the disastrous culmin­a­tion of Trump’s pres­id­ency on Janu­ary 6, as armed rioters invaded the Capitol.
