The unimpeachable president

January 18, 2018

With Saturday marking the first anniversary of U.S. President Donald Trump taking office, U of T News featured experts at the University of Toronto who have weighed in with Globe and Mail op-eds that take critical aim at the presidency. Clifford Orwin, professor of political science, looks at the unimpeachable president. The U.S. Constitution allows for impeachment for “high crimes and misdemeanours,” Orwin writes – and while “a wealth” of misdemeanours can be ascribed to Trump, there are no high crimes yet (although, Orwin allows, we don’t know the outcome of the Robert Mueller inquiry). Read Clifford Orwin’s full op-ed in the Globe and Mail here.
