Impeachment: Purpose Offense & The Importance of Context


On the Sunday, January 26, 2020 episode of For the Defense, Criminal Defense Attorneys Brad Koffel and Eric Willison sit down to talk about the Impeachment of President Trump, as well as their insight as defense attorneys who must periodically confront problems concerning the admission of evidence.

In an effort to explain some of the most pressing issues and why the Impeachment is a “purpose offense,” Attorney Koffel and Attorney Willison discuss defense attorneys’ frustration over motions to exclude or admit evidence, and the importance of context in understanding the accused’s intent and whether there was a reasonable basis for actions they took.
