Roundtable to explore what impeachment really means
An upcoming roundtable discussion moderated by Dr. Jim Ludes, vice president for public research and initiatives and executive director of the Pell Center, will explore what impeachment really means.
The founders wrote impeachment into the Constitution as the ultimate protection of the republic against a president who, once in office, offended the Constitutional order. As Congress develops its impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump, roundtable participants will discuss the definition of “high crimes and misdemeanors,” look at the three American presidents who faced impeachment in the past, and examine current events stretching from Washington to Ukraine.
The roundtable discussion will be held at 11:45 a.m. Friday, Nov. 8 in the O’Hare Academic Building, Room 242. Sponsored by the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy, roundtable discussions are open to Salve Regina students, faculty and staff. The Pell Center provides a free lunch.
As space is limited, those interested in attending should RSVP to (401) 341-2927 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
