Summary
  • ""Read this book and learn how best to protect our democracy." --Tom Steyer, NeedToImpeach.org Constitutional attorneys cut through the partisan rhetoric to make a clear, concise case that the US Constitution has a solution for our current predicament, and they detail how to enact it. "Impeachment is not a constitutional crisis. Impeachment is the cure for a constitutional crisis." This book, written by a trio of veteran constitutional attorneys, details a short, concise argument that says the founding fathers foresaw the current American situation, and invented impeachment for exactly this scenario. They differ from others, such as Laurence Tribe, who rhetorically advocate prosecuting Donald Trump through the criminal justice system. Anticipating that the Democrats will take over Congress in the fall election, they provide a precise case for Congress to use as a handbook, including detailed articles of impeachment. With a foreword by The Nation's John Nichols"--
  • "The reasons Donald Trump must be impeached -- as per the Founding Fathers -- and what you can do to help make that happen Three veteran constitutional attorneys say there's no way around it: The Constitution demands that Donald Trump must be impeached. And in clear language using compelling logic rooted firmly in the Constitution, they detail why the time to start is now--not in the indefinite future after criminal investigations have ended. In fact, much of Trump's impeachable conduct lies outside the scope of ongoing federal criminal investigations. Citing charges such as accepting illegal payments from foreign governments, using government agencies to persecute political enemies, obstructing justice, abusing the pardon power, and the undermining freedom of the press, they provide the factual and legal basis for eight articles of impeachment. In short, they argue, abuses threatening our constitutional democracy should be dealt with by the remedy that the Constitution provides for a lawless, authoritarian president: impeachment. And an informed citizenry should be part of the process. After all, they say, impeachment is not a constitutional crisis -- impeachment is the cure for a constitutional crisis"--
