As the U.S. House of Representatives formalizes its impeachment inquiry into President Trump, many Americans still have questions about how this process works. After all, only two U.S. presidents have been formally impeached, and neither of them were removed from office. So where is this process headed? What counts as a high crime or misdemeanor? And what would happen in a potential Senate trial?
Bring your inquiries (formal or informal) and join the IOP as we welcome one of the preeminent scholars on impeachment: Professor Frank O. Bowman, III. As the Floyd R. Gibson Missouri Endowed Professor of Law at the University of Missouri and a Visiting Professor of Law at Georgetown University, Prof. Bowman is the author of High Crimes and Misdemeanors: A History of Impeachment for the Age of Trump and runs the blog Impeachable Offenses? He previously served as Special Counsel to the U.S. Sentencing Commission and academic advisor to the Criminal Law Committee of the United States Judicial Conference.
