The politics of presidential impeachment will be discussed by a panel of experts Oct. 21 as part of the Bush School of Government and Public Service’s “What’s Next” series.

The panel will put U.S. relations with Ukraine into historical context and weigh in on the political benefits and costs of impeachment from a domestic and international perspective. The panelists will also share their perspectives of the current situation as well as what the next possible steps might be for the Trump administration, Democrats and Republicans.

The panel includes Ambassador Larry Napper, former U.S. ambassador to Latvia and Kazakhstan; Justin Bullock, assistant professor; and Gregory Gause, head of the Department of International Affairs. Lori Taylor, head of the Department Public Service and Administration, will serve as moderator.

The Oct. 21 event begins at 5 p.m. in Rudder Tower Room 501 on the Texas A&M University campus.

While there is no set schedule for the “What’s Next?” series, the timing and topics are driven by current events and public interest. This type of rapid-response series is designed to address events in real time, as they occur, with faculty from the Bush School discussing policy issues and options that are available to decision-makers.

Bush School Dean Mark Welsh noted that the school has experts in many areas of government policy who can help people understand what options are possible after a major news event.

The series is open to the public, and no registration is required. For more information on the event, visit the Bush School website.
