Is it possible to have a non-partisan discussion about impeachment? Former Circuit Judge John Franke believes the answer is “yes,” and will ring in the New Year with a cheerful look at the ultimate check and balance given to us by our Constitution. The President cannot fire Congress; why is it that Congress has the power to send the President packing? In what ways is an impeachment quite different than a criminal proceeding? What should we expect of our elected representatives in what has been a highly partisan process? We will have a highly non-partisan discussion about the history and development of our impeachment procedures and consider why an impeachment need not so divide us.
Rotary meetings are open to members, invited guests and media.
