Overview

Impeachment is a lengthy procedure that's heavily mediatized but quite hard to fully understand. In the recent case of former US President Donald Trump, the impeachment didn't seem to lead anywhere - but why does this procedure matter, and what does it truly mean?

Trump's impeachment wasn't the first in US history. Three other presidents found themselves in the exact same situation: Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon, and Bill Clinton. What happened in each of these cases? And when did the ability to oust a corrupt leader emerge?

This is what you'll discover in Jon Meacham's Impeachment: An American History. Although complex, this process is necessary and its origins and history are eye-opening to many hidden aspects of the American political system.

"Designed to check tyrants or oust corrupt leaders, the process of impeachment outlined in the United States Constitution nonetheless constitutes what Thomas Jefferson called 'the most formidable weapon for the purpose of a dominant faction that was ever contrived.'"
