San Diego State University is offering a new course called: “Trump: Impeachment, Removal, or Conviction.”

A description of the course says the focus will be on the two constitutional grounds for removing a president from office: “Impeachment and removal (25th Amendment),” KUSI News reported.

It will include lessons on possible charges of the independent counsel and the powers of the president. Students in the class will also learn about “presidential immunity from indictment, and grounds for impeachment, removal, or indictment.”

The course is a one-credit class and is part of a criminal justice program at the university’s College of Extended Studies.

The university told the San Diego TV station that the course will present an “overall framework of impeachment, removal or criminal investigation of a president.”

The university said “rather than focusing on President Trump,” the course “reviews all 19 impeachments in U.S. history.”

The university added that the College of Extended Studies is not funded by taxpayers, according to KUSI.

Some Democrats in the past have called for Trump’s impeachment.

This past weekend, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), who has been a leading opponent of Trump on Capitol Hill, told thousands of Democratic activists and officials to “get ready for impeachment.”

Speaking at the California Democratic Party’s annual convention in San Diego, Waters said that she believes special counsel Robert Mueller, who’s been at the helm of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, is “getter closer” to figuring out if the Trump campaign, or another person or entity, colluded with Russia.
