Bells 2&4. Blog # 9

Posted by JOANNA BLUME on 4/5/2020

Recently in class we have begun studying the structure of our national government. We have learned that to prevent an abuse of power the Framers created three separate branches and gave each branch the power to check and balance the others. One such example of this, is the legislative branch's power to impeach the President. If you follow the news, then you will know that the House of Representatives did vote to impeach President Trump and his trial was held in the U.S. Senate. So, for this week's blog I would like you to read the articles below and answer the following questions.

  1. Describe the impeachment process.
  2. Read the article and summarize the accusations made against President Trump.
  3. Conduct some additional research of your own and summarize the outcome of President Trump’s impeachment trial.  Do you agree or disagree with this outcome?


What is Impeachment?
