Impeached! Or: 55 White Guys Day Drinking

There's actually some question whether President Trump has officially been impeached, it turns out.

In any case, on Wednesday, December 18, the U.S. House of Representatives passed two Articles of Impeachment charging the president with abuse of power and obstruction of congress.

On our third full episode, we talk to the founder of Politico about the huge difference a tiny bit of self-control would make to the Trump presidency and a Yale historian about what those crazy founders were thinking when they put impeachment in the Constitution in the first place.

Plus: Our first AccuFrankie report from the Target parking lot in New Britain, Conn., and a song performed live in our studios by Nekita Waller, "Big Al" Anderson, Jim Chapdelaine, and The Shinolas.

GUESTS:

  • John Berry - A listener and former public school teacher
  • Joanne Freeman - Professor of history and American studies at Yale and the cohost of the podcast BackStory
  • Ross Garber - Teaches political investigations and impeachment law at Tulane Law School and is a CNN legal analyst; he has represented four governors in impeachment proceedings
  • Frankie Graziano - A reporter for Connecticut Public Radio
  • John Harris - Co-founder of Politico
