Presidential Impeachment: Must It Lie For A Crime?, Monte L. Brown

Honors Theses

Not since Andrew Johnson was impeached in 1868 has presidential impeachment been seriously considered. But in 1974 our country, for the second time in it's history, faced the possibility that our President may, in the words of the Constitution, "be re moved from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors." It was this great, but unfortunate event in our history, that prompted me to write this thesis.
