Publisher's summary

The office of the president of the United States of America is one that can shape not just a nation but the entire world. But what limits are there if any on presidential power? How do we keep such awesome responsibility in check?

These 12 eyeopening, timely lectures examine the ins and outs of presidential investigations using past events as a lens through which to make sense of current (and future) ones. With his political and legal insights, Professor Rosenzweig walks you through the entire path of investigating potential misuse of presidential power, from the establishment of legislative committees to the impeachment process.

You’ll witness the construction of the legal framework that informs how Congress and the courts handle charges of abuse of power. You’ll also dive into the investigations of presidents such as Richard Nixon, Ulysses S. Grant, and Bill Clinton as a way to lean what powers exist to ensure presidents adhere to the rule of law, and whether or not they can help us wrestle with current events coming out of the White House. These nonpartisan, unbiased lectures aren’t concerned with right and left but rather with the overarching progress and themes of American political and legal history. They’re detailed enough for legal experts and accessible enough to learners with only a basic understanding of how the US government and the justice system work.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
