Impeachment: Past, Present, and Future, Featured at MSU Wonderlust Friday Forum
- Friday, January 10, 2020 from 12:00pm to 1:30pm
- Bozeman Public Library, Community Room.
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 the political and governmental implications of the current impeachment proceedings?
The presentation and discussion will be held Friday January 10th from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Bozeman Public Library Large Community Room. This talk is free and open to the public, offered as part of the MSU Wonderlust Friday Forum. Friday Forum takes place the second Friday of each month September – May, at the same time and location.
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.
