About the Book

"Read this book and learn how best to protect our democracy." --Tom Steyer, founder of Need To Impeach

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.

Praises

“We are in the midst of a constitutional crisis…. If you are troubled about Trump’s lawlessness, I think it is your responsibility as a concerned citizen to read this book and to learn how bestto protect our democracy.” —Tom Steyer, founder of Need to Impeach

“Finally, a book about impeachment that lays out the facts about what President Donald Trump has done, the legal and constitutional principles he’s violated, and a clear case for why Congress should start impeachment hearings right away. You can read this book in one sitting and you’ll be ready to answer tired arguments for delay and diversion with the facts and the Constitution.”—Alyssa Milano, actress and activist

“Donald J. Trump is probably the most corrupt and inept U.S. president in modern history. He has violated the Constitution and this Nation’s laws with impunity. His impeachable offenses are legion and are expertly detailed in this book. It is a must-read for every voter and citizen interested in good government.”—James C. Nelson, Montana Supreme Court Justice (ret.)

“In a time when so much of political discourse has degenerated to tweets and Nazi slogans, it’s a relief to see a straightforward, coherent and compelling delineation of the case for impeachment. The only way to return our country to a semblance of normalcy is to impeach the kleptocrat-in-chief, and this book is exactly the guide we need to show us how.” ­—Ayelet Waldman, novelist and former public defender

“The founding fathers provided us with an effective tool to combat the excesses of the current administration. This book lays out the legal framework for impeachment …The country you save may be your own.”—Eva Paterson, veteran civil rights attorney

“That we are debating the impeachability of Donald Trump at all is a sign of the towering insanity of our age. We are lucky to have Ron Fein, John Bonifaz, and Ben Clements to show us the undeniable grounds for impeachment — perhaps the only way to demonstrate that we are a nation of ideals, decency, and laws.”—Dave Eggers, author of The Monk of Mokha and The Circle
