Friday Forum – Impeachment: Past, Present & Future
January 10 @ 12:00pm
Wonderlust Friday Forum
Friday, January 10 from 12:00 -1:30 PM
Impeachment: Past, Present, and Future
Dr. Nicol Rae, Dean of the MSU College of Letters and Sciences, will discuss the presidential impeachment power in the US Constitution and how it has played out over our history. Why did the framers give Congress the power to impeach and remove presidents? What are the criteria they set forth for this drastic action? What’s the history of our three presidential impeachments—and one near impeachment? What does the impeachment and Senate trial of President Donald J. Trump suggest about the impeachment process and the current state of our politics and government?
Nicol Rae holds a doctorate in politics from Oxford University. He is the co-author of Impeaching Clinton: Partisan Strife on Capitol Hill (2004). He has served as the MSU Dean of the College of Arts and Letters since 2013.
