Have we Tryst-Ed with our Destiny Yet?

The future beckons to us. Whither do we go and what shall be our endeavor? To bring freedom and opportunity to the common man, to the peasants and workers of India; to fight and end poverty and ignorance and disease; to build up a prosperous, democratic and progressive nation, and to create social, economic and political institutions which will ensure justice and fullness of life to every man and woman.”

An Impeachment on the Eve of an Upcoming Election

The term ‘impeachment’, when used in the Congressional context, refers to the filing of formal charges against a federal official in the House of Representatives, and not actually removing the official from office. If the House impeaches, the Senate then holds a trial on the afore-mentioned charges to decide whether the officer will be removed from the office. According to the US Constitution, a president can be impeached for “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanours”. Impeachment is meant to be a political act, and not a legal one, and hence there are no clear rules for judging when a president has crossed the constitutional line; this explains the ambiguity in the latter part of the statement over what constitutes an impeachable offense.
