David Priess - How to Get Rid of a President: History's Guide to Removing Unpopular, Unable, or Unfit Chief Executives

Upcoming Event
Monday, November 12, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Beyond voting a president out of office after four years or going through the cumbersome and unreliable exercise of impeachment, there are few sanctioned ways of removing a chief executive from office. But Americans have nonetheless devised some effective ways, and Priess’s lively, unconventional political history explores these schemes, which began with the founding fathers and have gained new relevance in recent years. A frequent commentator on the presidency and national security, Priess draws on his experience in the CIA under George W. Bush and Bill Clinton to look at the ethical and political repercussions of resisting, disobeying, or ejecting a president.
