U.S. Presidential Impeachment Library Now on HeinOnline

The new U.S. Presidential Impeachment Library from HeinOnline is available as part of our library’s subscription. This new collection includes not only Andrew Johnson, Bill Clinton, and Richard Nixon, but also Donald Trump, whose fate remains unknown as House Democrats introduced two articles of impeachment against him: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

Organized around the four affected presidents, this collection brings together a variety of documents both contemporaneous and asynchronous to each president’s impeachment, presenting both a snapshot of the political climate as each played out and the long view history has taken of past proceedings. Congressional Research Service reports round out a general discussion of presidential impeachment, and a curated list of scholarly articles, external links, and a bibliography provide avenues for further research on this topic.
