Lecture: Impeachment of a President
December 4, 2019 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM EST$15
What: Lecture: Impeachment of a President
Speaker: Robert A. Sedler, Wayne State University Constitutional Law Professor
Sponsored By: Fems for Change
Everyone is talking Impeachment these days, but many people are confused about what that actually means. Since Impeachment only happened twice in US history (to Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton with Richard Nixon avoiding near certain Impeachment by resigning) it’s not the sort of thing you get a lot of details on in High School history classes. That is why Fems for Change, a non-partisan, non-profit organization engaged in community education is sponsoring a civic lecture on the topic.
Speaker, Robert A. Sedler, distinguished professor of Constitutional Law at Wayne State University, has deep and broad knowledge of this subject matter. He will address some of the most commonly asked questions and concerns the public wants to know about this very dramatic and important legal event happening in our country right now:
–What does the Constitution say about Impeachment
–What role do the House of Representatives and the Senate play in the process
— What constitutes a high crime and misdemeanor
–What is the difference between an inquiry and an investigation
–How many votes do you need to Impeach
–What role does the Chief Justice of Supreme Court play
–What happens if a President is removed from office
Professor Sedler will also bring us up to speed on the latest developments in the case.
A Q & A will follow the presentation.
