As Trump claims to “make America great again,” he finds himself repeatedly bumping up against the greatest charter of government on earth: The United States Constitution. Attorney Robert J. McWhirter’s topics include the following:
- Trump and the Electoral College
- Trump and Presidential powers
- The 6th Amendment (Trump Gets Another New Lawyer, Again?)
Mcwhirter, who practices in Phoenix, is an award-winning, internationally recognized speaker and author on trial advocacy, immigration law, and the history of The Bill of Rights. See his book An Illuminated History of The Bill of Rights.
He is a certified Specialist in Criminal Law with the State Bar of Arizona and first-chair qualified to defend capital cases by the Arizona Supreme Court.
Fluent in Spanish, McWhirter has extensively taught comparative criminal procedure and trial advocacy in Latin America. In 2010-11, he served in El Salvador, administering an $11 million USAID project to reform the justice system, overseeing programs and training for the Salvadoran courts, police, prosecutors, and public defenders.
McWhirter’s previously published book, The Criminal Lawyer’s Guide To Immigration Law: Questions and Answers (ABA, 2006), was extensively quoted in 2010 by Justice Alito in Padilla vs. Kentucky. Mr. McWhirter is currently in private practice doing criminal defense.
