About the Author

Douglas L. Kriner is associate professor of political science at Boston University. Eric Schickler is the Jeffrey and Ashley McDermott Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Berkeley.


"Kriner and Schickler have written an important and timely work that deepens our understanding of the relationship between Congress and the executive branch, and fills a gap in the scholarly literature. This state-of-the-art study demonstrates that Congress's power to investigate executive misconduct is not just a vehicle for political grandstanding but an effective check on presidential power."--Choice
