Is a Trump impeachment a possibility?

Professor Harold Koh, Sterling Professor of International Law Yale Law School, joins Luke Grant for his view on whether there is a possibility that President Donald Trump could be impeached.

Professor Koh explains that no American president has been removed through impeachment. Only two presidents have been impeached: Bill Clinton for perjury and obstruction of justice in 1998 and Andrew Johnson for violating the Tenure of Office Act in 1868. Each was acquitted by the Senate, Johnson by just one vote.

The House Judiciary Committee famously approved three impeachment articles against Richard Nixon in 1974, but before House proceedings concluded, he resigned upon release of the White House tapes.
