In fact, Feldman was a senior constitutional advisor to the Coalition of Provisional Authority in Iraq in 2003, and advised on drafting the country’s interim constitution. Most recently, in 2019, Feldman testified before the House Judiciary Committee as part of the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.
