Between the lines of our parchment Constitution, renowned legal scholar Laurence Tribe argues, there is an “Invisible Constitution.” Tribe purports that some of our most cherished and widely held beliefs about our constitutional rights are not even included in the written document. How does this “Invisible Constitution” impact the central constitutional debates of our time – from gun control to abortion to wire-tapping? How has this framework for reading the Constitution evolved, and how does it work? Professor Laurence Tribe, Harvard Law School, joins us to discuss how we interpret our country’s most important document.
