Current Events in Historical Context


United States

AHA executive director Jim Grossman provided historical context in a Voice of America article on the second impeachment of former US president Donald Trump. “This has never happened before, this questioning of the legitimacy of an election by people whose own party leadership and elected officials have said was fair and clean,” said Grossman. “And when you pair that with an insurrection, a mob attacking the Capitol, clearly we have a large number of Americans who are alienated from the political institutions that constitute our democracy.”
