In an op-ed for The New York Times, history professor Carolyn Eisenberg explains why the House needs to take a broad approach in framing the articles of impeachment against President Trump, and draws parallels with the House debate over the Nixon impeachment as a lesson.

The House Judiciary Committee’s “findings and their scope will reverberate through time,” she argues. “Long after the next election, they will condition how Americans look upon this period of our history and what correctives might be found.”

12/13/19 Update: Dr. Eisenberg’s op-ed was include in the “Roundup Top 10” articles on the website of the History News Network.
