Professor Edward Foley writes op-ed for Politico on President Trump’s Impeachment

December 19, 2019 | Media News

Professor Edward Foley recently published an op-ed for Politico titled, “Here’s One Surprising Way Congress Could Avoid an Impeachment Disaster.”

Foley, the Director of the Election Law Program, said there is one way for President Donald Trump to be impeached yet avoid a complete “disaster.”

“The House could express its disapproval of Trump through an impeachment vote, and the Senate, through censure rather than a trial, could embrace, even enhance, the House’s message,” he wrote. “Yes, Trump would stay in office. But because both chambers of Congress would be on the record in officially condemning his conduct, there is a decent chance this approach might deter Trump from similar elections abuse.”
