Democracy on Trial: Robert Ray (interview) | FRONTLINE

Robert Ray served as a member of President Donald Trump’s legal defense team during the President’s first Senate impeachment trial in 2020. From 1999 to 2002, he led the Office of the Independent Counsel, during which time he investigated and issued a report on the Whitewater controversy.

This interview offers perspective and legal analysis on the four-count federal indictment against Donald Trump. The former president has pleaded not guilty to all four counts.

The interview was conducted by Kirk Documentary Group’s Mike Wiser for FRONTLINE on Oct. 19, 2023. It has been edited for clarity and length.
