Just Peachy!

December 2019 - Mid February, 2020

Curated by Jennifer Govan

Designed by Trisha Barton, Zoe Logan & Carlie Zhang

In the history of our nation only two presidents have ever been impeached: Andrew Johnson, for violating the Tenure of Office Act, and Bill Clinton, for perjury and obstruction of justice. Both were later acquitted by the United States Senate. Although other presidents have been threatened with impeachment, only two have faced formal impeachment inquiries in the House of Representatives: Richard Nixon, who resigned before he could be impeached as a consequence of the Watergate scandal, and Donald Trump, primarily under investigation for his dealings with the Ukraine and its influence on elections.

Just Peachy! explores the history of impeachment and its implications and controversies within the broad political spectrum. Included are educational resources that inform the process and call us to take a stand, as we weigh the gravity of this matter which is all over the news.
