Eighteen years ago, the Enron Corporation filed for bankruptcy following one of the largest corporate scandals in American history. Among its devastating effects, Enron’s collapse left nearly 5,000 company employees without jobs, precipitated the dissolution of Arthur Andersen LLP (one of the five largest auditing and accounting companies in the world), and left a lasting impact on the financial and legal world.

On the morning of Sunday, December 7, 1941, the United States was assaulted in a surprise, preemptive military strike by the Empire of Japan.

U.S. Presidential Impeachment Library Now Available!

Content News, HeinOnline Updates, U.S. Presidential Impeachment Library, U.S. Presidential Library, What's New
Lauren Mattiuzzo

Impeachment proceedings in the United States are rare. Presidential impeachments are even rarer. Since 1789, the House of Representatives has initiated impeachment proceedings only 62 times, and just 19 of these have led to full impeachments. Eight federal judges have been convicted and removed from office by the Senate, but thus far no president has met the same ignominious fate.

Andrew Johnson was the first president to have impeachment proceedings initiated against him in 1868 for violating the since-repealed and little-known Tenure Office Act. Bill Clinton’s impeachment charges in 1998 followed a wide-ranging investigation by Independent Counsel Ken Starr encompassing a variety of alleged wrongdoings…

Author Profile Pages, Current Events, Exploring HeinOnline, Law Journal Library, Political Science
Tara Kibler

After weeks of public testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, the House Judiciary’s impeachment hearings into President Trump have officially begun. On this first day of the hearings, four law professors take the stand to testify: Noah Feldman from Harvard Law School, Pamela Karlan from Stanford Law School, Michael Gerhardt from the University of North Carolina School of Law—all three picked by Democrats—and Jonathan Turley from the George Washington University Law School—picked by Republicans.

As experts in constitutional law, these professors will publicly testify today regarding the interpretation of the impeachment clause of the Constitution, which allows for the removal of the President of the United States following “high crimes and misdemeanours.”

Each of the experts can be found in HeinOnline’s Law Journal Library…
