3. Impeachment - Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia
impeachment is a formal process in which an official is accused of unlawful activity and the outcome of which, depending on country can lead to the removal of that official
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search This article is about a step in the removal of a public official. For challenging a witness in a legal proceeding, see witness impeachment This article needs additional citations for verification
Please help improve this article by adding reliable references . Unsourced material may be challenged and removed (June 2008) Impeachment is a formal process in which an official is accused of unlawful activity and the outcome of which, depending on country can lead to the removal of that official from office or other punishment. The word "impeachment" derives from Latin roots expressing the idea of becoming caught or entrapped, and has analogues in the modern French verb empêcher (to prevent) and the modern English impede . Medieval popular etymology also associated it (wrongly) with derivations from the Latin impetere (to attack). (In its more frequent and more technical usage, impeachment of a person in the role of a witness is the act of challenging the honesty or credibility of that person.) The process should not be confused with a recall election . A recall election is usually initiated by voters and can be based on "political charges", for example mismanagement, whereas impeachment is initiated by a constitutional body (usually a legislative body) and is usually, but not always, based on an indictable offense. The process of removing the official is also different.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search "House manager" redirects here. For the household servant, see Butler . For Theater operations, see House management The impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton in 1999, Chief Justice William Rehnquist presiding. The House managers are seated beside the quarter-circular tables on the left and the president's personal counsel on the right, much in the fashion of President Andrew Johnson's trial. Impeachment in the United States is an expressed power of the legislature that allows for formal charges against a civil officer of government for crimes committed in office. The actual trial on those charges, and subsequent removal of an official on conviction on those charges, is separate from the act of impeachment itself. Impeachment is analogous to indictment in regular court proceedings, while trial by the other house is analogous to the trial before judge and jury in regular courts. Typically, the lower house of the legislature will impeach the official and the upper house will conduct the trial.

    Impeachment is the process that enables a legislative body to remove a public official from office. It comprises two parts: (1) an accusation or indictment and (2) a trial. This practice has roots in English constitutional history. Members of Parliament employed impeachment against royally appointed Stuart officials in the 1600s. The concept was brought to the American colonies, where legislative assemblies used it against royal officials. Few other countries have provisions for impeachment. The U.S. Constitution makes the following provisions for the impeachment of federal officials: Article I, Section 2 Clause 5: The House of Representatives shall choose their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.

    The Final Vote Taken on the Second and Third Articles Acquittal of the President on Both Charges The Case Abandoned and the Court Adjourned Continuation of the Managers' Corruption Investigation Special Dispatch to The New-York Times RELATED HEADLINES THE IMPEACHMENT TRIAL Washington, Tuesday, May 26. The impeachment proceedings begun by the House of Representatives on Saturday, the 22d of February, is at an end. The President is acquitted of high crimes and misdemeanors, and the Court stands adjourned without date. What may come of the investigation now going on in the room of the Managers, no one can tell, but the nine articles presented on the 2d of March, and the two more brought on the [text unreadable] have been [text unreadable.] The informal caucus of Radical Senators last evening decided nothing about the order of business today. The Managers had presented a piquant and important report in the House, but it cannot be learned that they undertook as a whole to exert any influence in favor of the postponement of the vote in the Senate. Some of them wanted a further delay, others wanted a disposition made of [text unreadable] at once. A great majority of the Republican Senators were known to favor an adjournment, but several, including Conkling, Edmunds, Ferry, Morrill of Vermont, Morton, as well as the seven gentlemen who voted against the eleventh article, declared yesterday against such course.

Impeachment men outside of Congress generally were for such delay as would give the Managers an opportunity to conclude their investigation, and the impression was widely prevalent everywhere that another postponement would be carried.

    The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. U.S. Constitution, Article 2, Section 4 Introduction On September 11, 1998, Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr delivered an official report to the House Judiciary Committee detailing his investigation into the conduct of President William Jefferson Clinton. Following review, the committee may begin an impeachment inquiry, which, if carried to ultimate conclusion, may render the sitting President an ordinary citizen, and elevate the Vice-President to the Oval Office. Such action derives from Congress' Constitutional mandate and represents the most powerful check and balance granted to the Legislative Branch. As such, it is also the most difficult to implement, especially against the Presidency. To this date, only two Presidents have faced Articles of ImpeachmentAndrew Johnson in 1868 and Richard Nixon in 1974. In Johnson's case, the Senate's vote fell short of the neccessary two-thirds, while Nixon resigned before the House could vote on the Articles.

    Impeachment: A Double-Edged Sword
    Impeachment of the President can bring out the very best or very worst in America's democracy. The ability to remove from office our highest official reflects the depth of our commitment to a government of laws, not men. When Richard Nixon resigned from office in 1974, under threat of imminent impeachment, many foreign leaders were bewildered. They assumed throughout the Watergate affair that, if he had to, Nixon could always clamp down on the media, strike back at his enemies, somehow use his power to secure his position. In those countries, it takes bullets, not ballots, to remove a leader from the throne. Ultimately, they realized, all of these measures to restrain the President might not be enough. He might overstep the constitutional limits of his power and resist efforts to rein him in. In order truly to safeguard against an oppressive President (or, for that matter, one who otherwise proved unfit), the Framers felt they must provide a means for his peaceful removal from office. And so they did.
