San Diego State Offers Trump Impeachment Class Again
“Impeachment, Removal, and Special Counsel”
The last time they did this, there was backlash but they’re doing it again anyway.
The College Fix reports:
Trump impeachment class offered again at San Diego State
After a national outcry over its “Trump: Impeachment, Removal or Conviction” course in February, San Diego State University removed “Trump” and “Conviction” from the title.
Today, the public description of the course — offered again this fall — remains the same, and nearly half the syllabus is about the current president.
The College Fix obtained the fall 2018 course syllabus through a California Public Records Act request after SDSU did not return emails and phone messages seeking the document.
The course teaches students how a president can be impeached and even indicted based on “foreign emoluments, climate change, racism, religious bias … nepotism” and “false statements” — all categories that fit common allegations against President Donald Trump.
The taxpayer-funded university told Fox News in February that it would change the name of the course going forward. “In retrospect” it determined that focusing exclusively on President Donald Trump was “inconsistent with the course content described.”
The new title is “Impeachment, Removal, and Special Counsel,” and it’s again taught by lecturer John Joseph Cleary, a former attorney. The two-day course took place earlier this month through SDSU’s College of Extended Studies. The course is meant for the general public but students can take it and earn credit toward graduation, the San Diego Union Tribune has reported.
The syllabus says the course covers “divine right echo,” powers and limits of the president, judicial review, fundamentals of impeachment, presidential impeachment, and indictment of a sitting president.
