Double impeachment of President Donald Trump as a precedent in the history of the United States of America
Języki publikacji
In January 2021, an unusual precedent was set in the history of the political system of the United States. For the second time in a single term, an incumbent president was impeached by the House of Representatives of the U.S. Congress. Due to the unusual circumstances of the expiration of the president’s term and the change in the balance of power in the upper chamber, the Senate hearing of the charges was accompanied by legal problems of a constitutional nature, for which answers had to be sought in the Constitution itself and in the possible previous practice of Congress. The analysis of Donald Trump’s second impeachment, as the aim of the presented article, seems necessary not only to historically document the specifics of the subsequent acquittal, but also to indicate the dissimilarities accompanying this particular political process.
