The impeachment and removal of a president is one of the gravest responsibilities of the United States Congress. Only two presidents have been impeached, and none removed from office. But now, the nation faces a moment when a president, due to his actions, must face the possibility of impeachment, and perhaps even removal. Join Jack Fruchtman, seasonal Aquinnah resident, retired professor of constitutional history, and author, as he examines the historical context of impeachment and impeachment inquiries and places the current issues facing Americans in the growth of presidential power, especially in the twenty-first century.
