Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In The Case Against Lameduck Impeachment, Yale Law Professor Bruce Ackerman argues that the bill of Impeachment against President Clinton, passed in December 1998, expired on January 3rd, 1999, when a new House of Representatives began its term of office. It is unconstitutional for the Senate to begin a trial unless a majority of the newly elected House once again charges the President with "high crimen and misdemeanors."<P>The newly elected House of 1999 contains 40 new members and five mote Democrats, suggesting that a new House vote could produce a different outcome on one or both of the lameduck articles of impeachment.

Synopsis:

An incisive legal argument that the attempt to impeach then-President Bill Clinton was not only ethically troubling, but actually against the basic legal procedures of the House and Senate and thus unconstitutional. A wake-up call, relevant even today, of the lengths to which the American right will go in order to bring down their rivals, even under the scrutinizing eyes of the world.
