Impeachment proceedings in the United States are rare. Presidential impeachments are even rarer. Since 1789, the House of Representatives has initiated impeachment proceedings only 62 times, and just 19 of these have led to full impeachments. Eight federal judges have been convicted and removed from office by the Senate, but thus far no president has met the same ignominious fate.

This new collection includes not only Andrew Johnson, Bill Clinton, and Richard Nixon, but also Donald Trump, whose fate remains unknown as House Democrats introduced two articles of impeachment against him: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. To help researchers understand these always fascinating historical events, HeinOnline now offers a new collection, U.S. Presidential Impeachment Library.

Organized around the four affected presidents, this collection brings together a variety of documents both contemporaneous and asynchronous to each president’s impeachment, presenting both a snapshot of the political climate as each played out and the long view history has taken of past proceedings. Congressional Research Service reports round out a general discussion of presidential impeachment, and a curated list of scholarly articles, external links, and a bibliography provide avenues for further research on this topic. We are especially pleased to include the ever-growing resource Whistleblower Complaint on Ukraine, compiled by Kelly Smith at UC San Diego, which brings together official documents related to the whistleblower complaint and impeachment inquiry of Donald Trump. This library will continue to grow as we add new material, particularly as it becomes available for the current investigation into Donald Trump. Research not just the past but our fascinating present with HeinOnline.
