History of Impeachment

Here’s a discussion about the impeachment of Andrew Johnson, the near-impeachment of Richard Nixon, and the impeachment of Bill Clinton. Historian Jon Meacham discusses the Andrew Johnson impeachment.

The video’s description reads, “The co-authors of Impeachment: An American History talked about the only three presidential impeachment proceedings ever conducted: those involving Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon, and Bill Clinton. Participants were historians Jon Meacham and Timothy Naftali, New York Times Chief White House Correspondent Peter Baker, and Jeffrey Engel, director of the Center for Presidential History at Southern Methodist University in Dallas.”
