« back to classes page

Impeachment is our ultimate constitutional check against an out-of-control executive, but it is also a perilous and traumatic undertaking for the nation. As Congress begins an impeachment inquiry against President Trump, join us as we examine one of today’s most urgent questions: when and whether to impeach a president. We will read To End a Presidency: The Power of Impeachment by Laurence H. Tribe and Joshua Matz, (Basic Books, 2018). We will discuss the Founders’ intent in writing impeachment into the constitution; what comprises an impeachable offense; when it has been used and when not — and how to decide which course to follow; and how the political discussion and public perception of impeachment has evolved over the past half-century.
