What’s special about a Special Counsel? @ Knight TV Studio | Washington | District of Columbia | United States

As Robert Mueller seems near to ending the controversial investigation into Russian interference in 2016’s presidential election and possible collusion by the Trump presidential campaign, the Freedom Forum Institute will convene an expert panel to examine the role of special prosecutors and independent counsel in the nation’s justice system, in some instances based on personal experience.

The program will be opened by Gene Policinski, president and chief operating officer of the Freedom Forum Institute.

Panel members will include:

  • Stuart E. Eizenstat, American diplomat and attorney, and author of the new book, “President Carter: The White House Years;”
  • Kenneth W. Starr, former federal judge and U.S. Solicitor General, independent counsel for the Whitewater investigation;
  • Jonathan Turley, legal scholar, writer, commentator and legal analyst with a distinguished career as a lawyer; the J.B. and Maurice C. Shapiro Professor of Public Interest Law at The George Washington University.


  • Greta Van Susteren, former criminal defense and civil trial lawyer, broadcast journalist and host of legal and political affairs programs on Fox News and MSNBC.

Additional panel members may be added.
