Abstract

Last week, Donald Trump became the first president to be impeached twice by the US House of Representatives. Drawing comparisons with President Andrew Jackson’s congressional censure in 1834, Laura Ellyn Smith writes that impeachment without removal from office, or preventing Trump from holding office again, would establish impeachment as a merely symbolic act with little power to deter presidential overreach.
