FIRST AFRICAN-AMERICAN CABINET MEMBER

Remembering HUD’s Robert C Weaver, First Black Presidential Cabinet Member – The pink report news
Robert Clifton Weaver (December 29, 1907 – July 17, 1997)

On January 13, 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson appointed
the first African American cabinet member, making Robert C.
Weaver (above) head of the Department of Housing and Urban
Development (HUD), the agency that develops and implements
national housing policy and enforces fair housing laws.

In keeping with his vision for a Great Society, Johnson sought
to improve race relations and eliminate urban blight. As many
of the country’s African Americans lived in run-down inner-city
areas, appointing Weaver was an attempt to show his African
American constituency that he meant business on both counts.

How Bill Clinton dodged questions about Monica Lewinsky | Daily Mail Online

On January 7, 1999, the impeachment trial of President Bill
Clinton
, formally charged with lying under oath and
obstructing justice, began in the Senate. As instructed
in Article 1 of the U.S.
Constitution, Supreme Court Chief
Justice William Rehnquist was sworn in to preside (below),
and the senators were sworn in as jurors. Congress had only
attempted to remove a president on one other occasion:
the 1868 impeachment trial of President
Andrew Johnson,
who incurred the Republican Party’s wrath after he proposed
a conservative
Reconstruction plan.
