Atlanta Buckhead Midtown
- Impeachment -
A Glimpse At The Process



 In Atlanta Buckhead Midtown, one often hears the word "Impeachment". A non-partisan definiton comes in handy. In a short video posted below, "Office Hours" host, Ron Elving explains and according to the comments - he does a laudable job on the topic.


What exactly does 'Impeachment' mean?

"Impeachment is the process by which a legislative body levels charges against a
government official. Impeachment does not in itself remove the official from office;
it is equivalent to an indictment in criminal law, and thus is only the statement of
charges against the official. ...  In the United States, for example, impeachment at the Federal level is limited to those who may have committed
'Treason, Bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors'."                                                                   Wikipedia


 What is stated in the US Constitution?

"Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States; but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law."                      Wikipedia

 Comments from people who watched the video:

GM: To my knowledge, very factual and unbiased. Great production quality without being overdone. As a broadcaster the tone, cadence, & diction were fantastic. This is the type of content that will do NPR well.

JDS: For the first time in many months, I watched a video about 'politics' and 'impeachment' totally educational and with a very independent style. I'm amazed and mind-blown!

MM:  Damn, an unbiased political report from NPR. What a refreshing change, and they didn't disable comments either. Amazing!

TND: Very well done. I'd use this very educational video as an entertaining definition for impeachment.

RA:  I watched this thinking it was by the NRA. Pleasantly surprised at how non-political it turned out to be after realizing it was a YouTube video by NPR.

TDJ:  You are unbiased, eloquent, and honestly thought provoking. I wish more people could see these videos with an open mind and really sit down and have open dialogue about these tough issues without closing themselves off to new ideas or perspectives.

JD:  The quality and thought of these office hours is absolutely stunning. It's educational without being boring, and entertaining without dragging things out.

 TEZ:  i love how non-biased and informative this is, I thought npr was left wing? This is great! Nice, balanced and non-partisan.

Good morning, Lynn B. Friedman I'm addicted to CNN!!!   our current president will not be impeached....but the process and the exposure will cause his demise.... the people wanted something in the WH other than the traditional politician....they got him.... a businessman who marches to his own drummer....

Lynn I read the definition above and the definition being applied today is much different, and very partisan.  If the House follows through on their impeachment proceedings, and it then fails in the Senate (which is a certainty), President Trump will be serving another 4 years.

Dear AR Readers -
For members who see few comments on the posts that they worked so hard to write, no despair is necessary, well, at least UNTIL YOU CLICK under your Profile photo on your Home Page to see your "TRAFFIC" statistics!

I was curious, academically, to understand the process for Impeachment and thought the video was very clear so I posted about the topic. Now, within 24 hours, 102 people have read this post and yet only two of those people made comments! The readers are there - have faith!
All the best - Lynn
