On Friday, December 13, the House Committee on the Judiciary voted 23 to 17 to send two Articles of Impeachment to the full House of Representatives for consideration.
On Episode 2 of Pardon Me, Yale Law School's Emily Bazelon joins us to look at the legal ins and outs of the articles, the House vote, and a future Senate trial; The New Yorker's Adam Gopnik tells us to "Stop Saying That Impeachment Is Political"; and our friends from Sea Tea Improv in Hartford stop by to perform a holiday-themed, Scrooge/Trump mashup sketch.
- Emily Bazelon - Staff writer for The New York Times Magazine, cohost of Slate's Political Gabfest, and the Truman Capote Fellow at Yale Law School; her latest book is Charged: The New Movement to Transform American Prosecution and End Mass Incarceration
- Adam Gopnik - Staff writer for The New Yorker and the author, most recently, of A Thousand Small Sanities: The Moral Adventure of Liberalism
