Dan Goldman is a former assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York who has extensive experience fighting for justice in the courtroom.
Goldman graduated from Stanford Law School, where he advocated for voting and civil rights. In law school, he wrote an article on how felon disenfranchisement laws are “the modern-day literacy test” and contributed to Michelle Alexander’s book The New Jim Crow, which addresses inequalities in the criminal justice system. After leaving the U.S. Attorney’s office in 2017, he became a legal analyst for NBC News and MSNBC and served as a fellow at the Brennan Center for Justice. Goldman then became a senior advisor and director of investigations for the U.S. House Intelligence Committee, where he served as lead counsel during the first impeachment inquiry against Donald Trump.
As a representative, Goldman will focus on protecting and strengthening our democracy and voting rights, and will bring his extensive experience fighting for justice in the courtroom to Congress as he fights to pass strong climate legislation that will benefit all communities.
Goldman joins the U.S. House to fill the seat of Representative Jerry Nadler, who was reelected to New York’s 12th Congressional District due to redistricting and has earned a 97% lifetime score on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard.
In his own words:
“Climate change is an existential threat that requires a rapid transition and lasting commitment to a clean energy future and green economy.”
