Episode notes

It’s Go time in Washington DC. The Democrats have filed their Articles of Impeachment, and the stage is set for Donald Trump to be impeached by the House of Representatives.

This week on Divided States, Cordelia Lynch, Amanda Walker and Emily Purser Brown catch up on the latest news in the impeachment process that is dominating politics in Washington – and get a view into how much Americans outside of the nation’s capital actually care.

In part one, we discuss the highlights of the week – what’s in the articles of impeachment, what happens with the big vote next week – and are the outcomes already set in stone?

In part two, Amanda travels to Racine in the south east corner of Wisconsin. A swing state, in 2016 the voters there turned away from the Democrats and helped Trump on his path to the White House. How do they feel now their president is facing such a serious challenge from the Democrats, and are they even listening?

In part three, Cordelia has a conversation with Jeffrey Engel, co-author of the brilliant Impeachment: An American history. It is essential reading on what’s come before, and what the founding fathers would have made of Donald Trump’s actions – making him the perfect person to round out the week.
