Politic assignment 15
1.) The Founding Fathers clearly designed the office of President to have some power, but not A LOT of power. However, it is probably safe to say that the president today is more powerful than what the Founding Fathers originally envisioned. Reflecting an understanding of the material presented in the module, how and why do you believe that the president’s power has grown over the years? And, do you believe the power has grown too much; meaning, do you believe the president is too powerful today? Please explain your response.
2.) Generally explain the impeachment process and why it is very difficult to remove the president from office. Also, based on your knowledge of the allegations facing President Trump and his possible wrongdoings involving the Ukraine, do you believe these allegations are worthy of impeaching and removing the president from office? Please make specific references to what Pres. Trump has been accused of (you can find more on this in the Impeachment module page).
3.) As was discussed in one of the pages of the module, there is often a battle between Congress and the President over who has more power and who should the final say in certain issues. Based on your knowledge of both Congress and the Presidency, who do you think does have more power? Do you believe that our current government reflects the intent of the Founding Fathers to have a Congress that has more power than the President? Explain your response.
