Publisher's Summary

In The Case for Impeachment, distinguished professor of history at American University Allan J. Lichtman illuminates exactly how the impeachment of President Trump might work by showing how his actions - past or future - make him uniquely vulnerable to impeachment proceedings. From his dealings with Russia to his conflicts of interest at home and abroad to the numerous civil suits involving him, Lichtman zeroes in on Mr. Trump's key areas of weakness.

Professor Lichtman also offers a fascinating look at presidential impeachments throughout American history, including the often overlooked story of Andrew Johnson's impeachment, little known details about Richard Nixon's resignation, and Bill Clinton's hearings.

Many historians and legal scholars agree that we are facing uncharted political waters, and most citizens - politics aside - want to know where the country is headed. Professor Lichtman has correctly predicted every presidential election since 1984, including the election of 2016. Now he is focusing on the 45th president of the United States, demonstrating his view that it is not a question of if President Trump will be impeached but a question of when.

    "Lisa R"

    If you only listen to one book about Donald Trump's presidency then I strongly urge you to select this book. Allan Lichtman presents information about the American judicial and congressional systems in a way that is accessible and engaging for everyone, regardless of their knowledge or understanding of the inner workings of our political infrastructure. It simply presents a balanced observation of Trump's presidency and predicts a potential outcome, backed by facts along with an alternative for Trump to consider. The narrator was excellent, and I was completely engaged throughout the entire book.

    Story
    "Every American should read this!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Case for Impeachment to be better than the print version?

    Every American should read this - no matter your political persuasion. You may or may not agree with the author's assertion that the book is even-handed politically - (I agree that it is, although I am not a Trump supporter), but I feel all Americans should better understand a few things that this book strongly presents:<br/><br/>1) Which actions & matters can lead to impeachment - Impeachment happens so rarely that the great majority of Americans have no idea what factors may actually play a role. This book illustrates different impeachable offenses by referring to historical examples and relating them to the current President's actions when applicable.<br/><br/>2) Donald Trump's previous actions, in a wide range of contexts, that could/would qualify him for impeachment. No matter your political persuasion, Americans should know the things that Trump is on record as having done. You may be surprised. If you're a Trump supporter, even if you may find that you're not very concerned, you will be more informed and able to better talk about or think through these past actions when they come up in conversation or news stories. <br/><br/>3) What Trump can do to avoid impeachment. Again, no matter your political persuasion, these specifics are important to be aware of. If you are not a Trump supporter, knowing Trump's expected plans of defense will alert you if/when he begins circling his wagons. Unlike other reviewers, I think this information was valuable to include in the book so we can better interpret and respond to what we're likely to see happening in the future. <br/><br/>At the most basic level, I feel it's valuable for Americans to know the offenses Trump has already committed and which are most likely to lead to impeachment. On election night, I was hoping that someone would quickly write this book, I'm so glad Lichtman was the author and that he did so well putting these issues, applicable previous offenses, and the brief historical context surrounding impeachment into layman's terms. <br/><br/>Very worth your time - direct and to the point.

    Story
    "Its all politics."
    Would you try another book from Allan J. Lichtman and/or Dan Woren?

    Sure, the case was concise, gripping, current.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Case for Impeachment?

    Just some of the background of the process, and who Donald J Trump is.


    What about Dan Woren’s performance did you like?

    He read the material clearly, and kept it moving.


    Did The Case for Impeachment inspire you to do anything?

    Sincerely, no. Impeachment would be in the hands of a Republican controlled Congress at the moment. Hard to see it moving forward, but everyday I wonder a little more.


    Any additional comments?

    I think if the process does come around, this may seem topical.

    "I give it 2 weeks"

    I have a degree in PS but I was not aware so many things can get you impeached. On 4/26 Trump did 2 things that could get him impeached We need to start calling his lies what they are, a crime and impeachable offense

    "Complete historical background plus a plan for today"

    Allan Lichtman gives us an historical description of why the framers of the constitution included impeachment as a necessary way to remove a dangerous president. This book will both inform you and motivate you. I recommend it highly.

    I'm a retired professor of geography. A few years ago my health deteriorated and I had to give up reading. Audiobooks are my life-saver.

    "Hope over the horizon"

    It would be great if Pres. Trump finally thought about someone other than himself and truly tried to envision our democracy working at its best.
