To Impeach Or Not To Impeach? That Is The Question.

Jan 28, 2019

There's a healthy debate going on about whether to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Trump.

The Atlantic's Yoni Appelbaum and others say now is the time to begin the process. History tells us that the process of impeachment, not the outcome, is a vital protection against the dangers of a president who has not kept his promise to preserve and defend our Constitution. Others say Trump will need to be beaten at the polls in the absence of Mueller-stamped evidence.  

Also this hour: The State of the Union has been around since President Woodrow Wilson decided the president should be required to deliver an annual message to Congress about the nation's challenges and priorities. Is it time to get rid of it? 

Lastly, why does LA Rams head coach Sean McVay need a get-back guy to tell him where to stand?

GUESTS:  

  • Yoni Appelbaum Historian and senior editor at The Atlantic, where he oversees the Ideas section.  
  • Michael Baumann - Staff writer for The Ringer.
