VIRTUAL TALK: “How to Get Rid of a President” with David Priess
June 18, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFREE
HOW TO GET RID OF A PRESIDENT
History’s Guide to Removing Unpopular, Unable, or Unfit Chief Executives
Party intrigue, personal betrayals, conspiracies, and backroom shenanigans. Just another day in politics. And, when it comes to term limits, there are no limits to what people have done and will continue to do to remove unpopular, unable or unfit chief executives. Yes, the American presidency has seen it all, from rejecting a sitting president’s renomination bid and undermining their authority in office to the more drastic methods of impeachment, and, most brutal of all, assassination. How to Get Rid of a President showcases the political dark arts in action and proves that that while the pomp and circumstance of presidential elections might draw more attention, the way that presidents are removed teaches us much more about our political order. David Priess is author of the The President’s Book of Secrets: The Untold Story of Intelligence Briefings to America’s Presidents. He served at the CIA during the presidencies of Bill Clinton and George W. Bush as an intelligence officer, manager, and daily intelligence briefer and at the State Department.
