The Common Good hosted an excellent evening of discussion with Dr. Laurence Tribe, expert Harvard legal scholar, and John Heilemann, host of The Circus, on February 28th, 2019. Dr. Tribe provided insight into the current seeming constitutional crisis and the role of the modern Supreme Court as the audience hung on to every word. New York City media also took note, and Dr. Tribe’s predictions were reported on in Page Six:
The crowd that gathered in a Fifth Avenue apartment to hear Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe was as deep blue as the ocean.
John Heilemann, who was filming the event for his Showtime program, “The Circus,” asked the audience to raise their hands if they had voted for Hillary Clinton. Nearly everyone raised their hand. ‘Now raise your hand if you voted for Donald Trump.’ One hand went up. ‘For the Upper East Side, this is a very ideologically diverse crowd,’ Heilemann quipped.
Tribe disappointed the faithful at the event, organized by Patricia Duff for the Common Good, when he predicted that President Trump would not be indicted. The lawyer, who has argued 35 cases before the US Supreme Court, also said, ‘The public is obsessed with impeachment.’ He compared the Never Trumpers to children on a long car ride who keep asking, ‘Are we there yet?’
