"The office of the president of the United States of America is one that can shape not just a nation but the entire world. But what limits are there- if any-on presidential power? How do we keep such awesome authority in check? In these 12 eye-opening, timely lectures, examine the ins and outs of presidential investigations, using past events as a lens through which to make sense of current (and future) ones. With his political and legal insights, Professor Rosenzweig walks you along the entire path of investigations into potential misuse of presidential power, from the establishment of legislative committees through the impeachment process. You'll witness the construction of the legal framework that informs how Congress and the courts handle charges of abuse of power. You'll also dive into the investigations of presidents such as Andrew Johnson, Ulysses S. Grant, Richard Nixon, and Bill Clinton as a way to learn what powers exist to ensure that presidents adhere to the rule of law-and how they apply in our current political moment. These evenhanded lectures aren't concerned with party politics, but rather with the overarching progress and themes of American political and legal history. They're detailed enough for legal experts, yet accessible to learners with only a basic understanding of how the U.S. government and the justice system work."
