INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERWhy President Trump has left us with no choice but to remove him from office, as explained by celebrated Supreme Court lawyer and former Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal. No one is above the law. This belief is as American as freedom of speech and turkey on Thanksgiving—held sacred by Democrats and Republicans alike. But as celebrated Supreme Court lawyer and former Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal argues in Impeach, if President Trump is not held accountable for repeatedly asking foreign powers to interfere in the 2020 presidential election, this could very well mark the end of our democracy. To quote President George Washington’s Farewell Address: “Foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government.” Impeachment should always be our last resort, explains Katyal, but our founders, our principles, and our Constitution leave us with no choice but to impeach President Trump—before it’s too late.

Great primer on the impeachment process.
Every American needs to read this, regardless of your party! The author gives you a tremendous amount of history, why this is going on now, and why this is so very important that the American people should care.
This book is the book to read about the impeachment of Donald Trump . Mr. Katyal clearly explains the history of what the founding fathers were thinking when they wrote the constitution and the articles of impeachment . Highly recommend.
In the current political climate there are so many opinions and confusion surrounding the facts -- often history is presented in a way to align with the arguments -- it's challenging. Find this author to be straightforward and well informed, easy to read and understand, for this reason it is definitely worth the time to investigate and to read his book.
An informative book that will probably only be an echo chamber for those already inclilned to support the impeachment and removal of Donald Trump. Those opposed, who should also read this book, will most likely refuse to read it, or, if they do read it, will categorically dismiss its content.
