Article II: Executive Power

Course Description

Creating the Executive branch was a difficult task for the Founders.  They knew they didn’t want a king but what powers did a President and his staff rightfully need to execute and uphold the law?  Episodes in this unit cover topics related to specific Presidential responsibilities and powers, as well as questions about who qualifies as an “Officer of the United States,”  and the balance of power between the Executive and Legislative branches.
