The impeachment and acquittal of President Bill Clinton modernized impeachment law and streamlined an increasingly used congressional process.  The Watergate-era process  produced proposed articles of impeachment against President Richard Nixon which were a major source of guidance for the Clinton impeachment prosecutors.   Ms. Radnofsky will provide a general introduction to U.S. constitutional impeachment law and grounds (with a contrast to British impeachment origins of our process) and discuss the highlights of the 19 US impeachment cases.
