In the first half of the 2017 year, during the early months of the Trump administration, we all have been bombarded with the word and political science of “Impeachment” – specifically “Presidential Impeachment”.
And just as it is in our 24 hour news cycle, we (both on Left and Right of the political spectrum) could be a bit hazy on the term and theory behind the Impeachment process. Not only regarding the actual “rubber meets the road” part of the Impeachment process, but also regarding HOW and WHAT congressional forces have to align, in order for BOTH parties to seek an Impeachment process.
It’s a toughy, for sure. But there are some books (gasp!) that could help us all out a bit.
- Case for Impeachment by Allen J. Lichtman
- Impeachment, A Handbook by Charles Black, Jr.
- Impeachment of Richard Nixon by Committee On The Judiciary House of Rep. 1974
