This insider look at President Clinton’s impeachment is a shocking account that rips away the spin doctored veneer coating the flagrant corruption and abuses of power lurking beneath. Author David P. Schipper - a Democrat, and former chief Investigative Counsel for the US House Judiciary Committee - takes a hard look at dealings behind closed doors, allowing the public to see evidence that this was not merely a case about sexual misconduct, but about also about perjury and witness tampering. Brian Sutherland’s performance lends the prose an ease that makes what could be difficult material simple to digest.
As a former Chicago prosecutor, David Schippers thought he had seen everything - treachery, double crosses, sellouts. But what he saw behind the scenes at the Clinton impeachment shocked him to his core. This is his story - the story from a man who knows more than anyone else about what went on behind closed doors leading up to the impeachment of President Clinton. David Schippers, the former Chief Investigative Counsel of the House Judiciary Committee and a loyal Democrat, went against his party, the press, and public opinion to build a powerful case against the most corrupt President in American history and bring him to justice. But in this startling book, Schippers shows how the entire impeachment process was what Chicago politicians call a "First Ward election" - a rigged ball game, a sellout. And he tells you who took the dives. This is a stunning indictment of President Clinton's corruption - and of the congressional leaders who let him get away with it.

I didn't pay much attention to politics back when this all went on, although I knew enough to vote for George H.W. These are the facts, and they are disturbing. I think these events are very much relevant today, since Hilary will be running for president. Remember, character counts, it is really just that simple.
