In this class, we will examine the process by which the lower house of the legislature brings charges against a civil officer of government for crimes that are alleged to have been committed. It is like being indicted for a crime. The class will examine the impeachment of Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton, the resignation of Richard Nixon to avoid impeachment, and calls for impeachment of Donald Trump.

She received her undergraduate degree in history from Duke University and her master’s degree in history from the University of Tulsa.
