  • A Nemzeti Közszolgálati Egyetem Ludovika Széchenyi Termében Stumpf István korábbi alkotmánybíró vendége volt Richard Stearns, USA Szövetségi bíró. A beszélgetés témája a 2020-as amerikai elnökválasztás, az amerikai választási rendszerre vonatkozó szabályok kialakulása és a hamarosan sorra kerülő ‘impeachement’ volt.
