Impeaching the President: Past, Present, and Future

Alan Hirsch, Lecturer in Humanities, Chair of Justice and Law Studies. City Lights Publishers, 2018. Available on Amazon. Constitutional scholar Alan Hirsch offers clear and to-the-point guidance for all matters relating to removing a sitting president—from the Founder’s constitutional protections against executive criminality, and the instructive impeachment stories of presidents Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon, and Bill Clinton, to the particular ways that Donald Trump may be legally vulnerable, and the possibilities and limitations of presidential self-pardon.
