Connections: Understanding impeachment and the 25th Amendment

Jan 12, 2021

We talk with local legal and political science experts about national conversations surrounding impeachment and the possible use of the 25th Amendment. On Monday, House Democrats introduced an article of impeachment against President Trump. A vote is scheduled for Wednesday to charge Trump with “inciting violence against the government of the United States.”

Our guests explain what we need to know about impeachment, the 25th Amendment, and what could happen next. Our guests:

  • Aaron Herold, assistant professor in the Department of Political Science and International Relations, coordinator of Legal Studies, and co-director of the Forum on Constitutionalism and Democracy at SUNY Geneseo
  • Jeremy Sher, founding partner and litigation attorney at Adams Leclair LLP, and co-leader of Indivisible Rochester
