Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren J.D. ’75 is the only politician to have participated in four presidential impeachments.
Lofgren, a Democrat representing most of Santa Clara County, started the streak as a Santa Clara Law student when she helped the House Judiciary Committee draft charges against President Richard Nixon in 1974.
Twenty-four years later, she was a member when the committee approved articles of impeachment against President Bill Clinton.
In 2020, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked Lofgren to serve on the team prosecuting the House’s case against President Donald Trump in the Senate.
