Professor Larson Comments on Trump and Impeachment for ABC-10

Professor Carlton Larson commented for ABC-10 in Sacramento on the potential for President Trump to face impeachment proceedings.

"In theory, there is no reason why that couldn't happen," said Larson, but Republican control of Congress makes impeachment less likely. However, support from his party could disappear if Trump is perceived as more of a liability than an asset, Larson said.

"Once they conclude Donald Trump does more harm than good, they'll drop him like a stone," Larson said. "I don't see that they're at that point.”

Carlton Larson's research interests focus on constitutional law and legal history, with a strong emphasis on the 18th century.
