She then compared and contrasted the impeachment cases of U.S. presidents Andrew Johnson, Bill Clinton, and Donald Trump. Dr. Larus’ presentation was followed by robust Q&A and discussion of U.S. presidential and congressional politics. Graduate students from Poland, Ukraine, and Nigeria participated in discussion.
