Free course on the presidency. One paragraph per day.
22. The Constitution is silent on the related presidential power to remove. The topic was raised. For example, in Anti-federalist 67, George Clinton wrote in 1787 that the President should not be allowed to remove officials without the advice and consent of the senate. The topic became a major source of debate soon after the Constitution was made effective in 1789.
