A Non-Partisan Guide to Impeachment


Is it possible to have a non-partisan discussion about impeachment?   Former Circuit Judge John Franke believes the answer is “yes,” and will ring in the New Year with a cheerful look at the ultimate check and balance given to us by our Constitution.  The President cannot fire Congress; why is it that Congress has the power to send the President packing?  In what ways is an impeachment quite different than a criminal proceeding?  What should we expect of our elected representatives in what has been a highly partisan process?  We will have a highly non-partisan discussion about the history and development of our impeachment procedures and consider why an impeachment need not so divide us.
