Impeachment 101: What you need to know

The U.S. House of Representatives voted Thursday to move forward with an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, bringing the behind-the-doors investigation into the public eye. 

Speaker Nancy Pelosi launched an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump on Sept. 24, 2019, dividing the country on whether he should be removed from office. Pelosi initiated the inquiry after a phone call with the president of Ukraine — causing some to accuse Trump of an abuse of power through a quid pro quo.

In this episode of Office Hours, Mike Zarkin, a political science professor at Westminster College and the chair of the department of politics and justice studies, walks through the impeachment process and the specific circumstances surrounding the inquiry on Trump.
