An Explanation of the 25th Amendment
A Harvard Forum Event
On Friday 10/27/17 at 7pm, Professor Robert McWhirter Esq. will present to the Harvard Alumni an hour long explanation of the 25th Amendment to the United States Constitution. This is a provision by which a majority of the Cabinet can give the heads of the two Houses of Congress written notice that the President is unable to discharge the duties of his office, resulting in the Congress promptly voting on whether to remove the President from the Office, thus empowering the Vice President to replace him. McWhirter is a frequent contributer to the monthly State Bar magazine, writing on the Constitution, the Magna Carta and the like. He will explain the history of this amendment (which has been repeatedly mentioned lately on CNN) and will contrast it to the impeachment processes about which we were taught during the Nixon and Clinton administrations. There will be some discussion of the legal limits on Presidential Pardon Powers as well. Questions will be answered at the conclusion of the presentation.
Seating will be limited because the UBS Hall (4800 North Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale – located next to the Roaring Fork Restaurant in the Portales Center Building) in which we hold these forum events only seats 75. To reserve a place for yourself or guests, please send an email with your name, address, email, number, and desire to attend to: David.Tierney@sackstierney.com before 10/21/17. After that date, if seats remain, we will make those seats available to another organization to fill out the Hall.
