    Would the Founding Fathers Impeach Trump? with Robert Reich

    Trump has asked a foreign power to dig up dirt on a major political rival. This is an impeachable offense. Come back in time with me. In late May 1787, when 55 delegates gathered in Philadelphia to begin debate over a new Constitution, everyone knew the first person to be president would be the man who presided over that gathering: George Washington. As Benjamin Franklin put it, “The first man put at the helm will be a good one,” but “Nobody knows what sort may come afterwards.” Initially, some of the delegates didn’t want to include impeachment in the Constitution, arguing that if a president was bad he’d be voted…

    The Articles of Confederation – Constitutional Convention – Extra History – #4

    In far away Paris, diplomats put pen to paper and signed the treaty that would end the American Revolutionary War. A copy of this document sailed across the ocean, were it would need delegations from nine states to ratify it under the Articles of Confederation and accept their victory… Only seven states showed up. [Intro Music] One month after the Confederation’s embracing failure to bring the states together long enough to sign their own peace treaty, they reconvened with just enough people to get it done. The war had ended, peace had come. George Washinton had welcomed this with open arms. He had one the love of the nation and…

    How Convention of States was put into the Constitution

    It was the 15th of September, two days before they signed the document, the end of four long, hot months in Philadelphia.
