This Friday, Feb. 5, at 12pm EST, Quinta Jurecic, Lawfare managing editor, will join Benjamin Wittes, Lawfare editor-in-chief, to discuss various proposals for truth commissions that could wrestle with the abuses of the Trump administration and hold officials accountable for their actions while in office. Quinta Jurecic recently wrote an article in The Atlantic titled, “Don’t Move on Just Yet,” that discussed historical examples for truth commissions. Benjamin Wittes recently co-wrote an article in Lawfare titled, "Can an Investigative Commission for the Trump Era Actually Work? A Proposal" that explores using the existing network of inspectors general to build a kind of distributed truth commission.

Bryce Klehm is a first year law student at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. He is a former associate editor at Lawfare.
