Description

Professor of Politics at Princeton, Keith Whittington calls into the podcast to explain exactly what impeachment is and why he’s not anxious to see another President impeached in his lifetime. Writer Kit Steinkellner joins us in the studio to help us make sense of our newfound knowledge. As calls for impeachment increase, we wonder: Does Impeachment do more harm to our country than good?
