New Brunswick, N.J. (Dec 11, 2019) – Ross Baker, distinguished professor of political science at Rutgers University–New Brunswick and an expert on American politics, is available to comment on the articles of impeachment released by the House Judiciary Committee’s Democratic majority against President Trump.

Baker is a former research associate at the Brookings Institution. He has served as a consultant and resident scholar for Democrats in the House and Senate.

“Rather than risk incorporating material from the Mueller Report which was lengthy, highly redacted, and not well understood by the public, the Democratic leadership wisely decided to stick to matters related to the President's actions in regard to military aid to Ukraine,” Baker said.

Baker can be reached at rosbaker@polisci.rutgers.edu.
