Amicus With Dahlia Lithwick | Law, justice, and the courts

A show about the law and the nine Supreme Court justices who interpret it for the rest of America.


What Is Impeachment For?

In a conversation taped live at the Aspen Institute, Dahlia Lithwick speaks to former acting solicitor general of the United States Neal Katyal about impeachment, and how he approaches is it as an “extremist centrist.”

Katyal’s book, co-written with Sam Koppelman, Impeach: The Case Against Donald Trump, is out now.

This is a preview of a Slate Plus episode. To hear the episode in full, sign up for Slate Plus.

Come see Dahlia Lithwick chatting with Andrew Gillum, Rick Hasen, and other guests live at the Hamilton in Washington, D.C., on Feb. 19.

Podcast produced by Sara Burningham.
