NATIONAL BESTSELLER“Lichtman has written what may be the most important book of the year”   The HillIt is still striking to see the full argument unfold and realize that you don’t have to be a zealot to imagine some version of it happening Lies Abuse of power Treason Crimes against humanity Martial law Lichtman throws everything Trump’s way Washington Post Published to coincide with the first anniversary of Donald J Trump’s inauguration and updated with new material and a new introduction a paperback edition of the critically acclaimed national bestseller that makes the case for impeaching the 45th president of the United StatesIn the fall of 2016 Al. To simply peruse bookshop shelves and lists on Goodreads one can assert that much has been written about Donald J Trump since he announced his candidacy for President of the United States POTUS The number of publications since he ascended to the White House is likely exponentially larger than any other POTUS during the same short time in office Within both those groups of books there sits a sub group of books about Trump s impeachment citing various sources and reasons It s not yet been two years since he has been in office at the time of this review and I baffle myself that I need not rely on fakebookstats to make this assertion Enter Allan J Lichtman a distinguished professor at American University who predicted Trump s victory months before it took place He also asserts that using his own formulaic means of picking a winner he has not been wrong over the past eight presidential elections Not as well published was his prediction that Trump would be impeached even before he lay his hand on a Bible before reader please choose your preference of the truefake number Americans watched in person on that January day Publishing this piece months into the Trump presidency Lichtman offers up a convincing case about why Trump should and will be impeached by Congress for deeds he undertook Lichtman explores the historical use of impeachment for the curious reader particularly on three sitting presidents He uses the examples of Andrew Johnson who was saved from having his impeachment upheld in the Senate by a singe vote and Richard Nixon when discussing the role Congress played in investigating both men and how Trump s actions paralleled those of his Oval Office brethren Effectively laying out some of the changes brought against the Johnson and Nixon Lichtman explains how they could be used against Trump replacing the arguments with modern examples From treasonous activities to collusion through to crimes against humanity and abuse of presidential power Lichtman reveals how Trump the man entered into the fray with so much baggage that Congress has much that can be used to bring forth Articles of Impeachment that can receive bipartisan support While all this may be damaging Lichtman also brings up an argument that I have not heard previously about the timing of acts and how they play a role in presidential impeachment He effectively shows how acts that took place before Trump ascended to POTUS can and should be used to fuel an impeachment citing examples of a recently removed federal judge If this is the case there are new and interesting angles to be discussed when it comes to the topic As I mentioned before something else that will stoke the fires this book came out in April 2017 with only a few months of Trump presidential fodder and yet makes strong and convincing arguments for egregious acts that include treason and collusion with the Russians No Mueller no white supremacy and no mass exodus of Cabinet officials save Michael Flynn These arguments are based on pre White House acts that should not be ignored as partisan rhetoric Worry not Trump fans or undecideds as Lichtman offers some clear and foolproof ways of steering clear of impeachment which will reuire only the same sacrifices as others who became president As of now it seems Trump has steered clear of any and all recommendations sullying the office in new ways each dayu An interesting and eye opening read for those who want to explore the topic a little particular by a man Trump praised for predicting his victory in November 2016I admit that I have been on a binge when it comes to American politics of late exploring some of the controversial aspects of Trump and his 2016 presidential campaign I have also long had an interest in impeachment and read about the topic when I can To see an academic of such high regard lay out the systematic reasons for Trump s impeachment I cannot help but perk up and listen Many can say this journalist or that lawyer is biased and has no right to make such sweeping comments but I have come to wonder if so many recognised people in their fields are making varied yet similar arguments can we all be blinded and singing out of the same fake hymn book With a man who makes double speak an Olympic event can the citizenry of the world sit around and make assertions that they are being duped by all but Fox and Friends Lichtman offers the reader sound evidence weaving together both recently happenings and those in history to assert that Trump has been acting in ways that Congress could and should push for impeachment We have all heard the rigging of elections and the handing over information to the Russians which are strong arguments but Lichtman also introduces ideas about crimes against humanity These parallel some of the ideas used by Congress to push for Nixon s impeachment though the rationale is vastly different now The reader should go into the book with an open mind and allow themselves to be pushed in one direction or another I did and find a lot of it uite revealing and convincing without feeling a degree of inculcation While the topic is uite academic and at times esoteric Lichtman writes in such a way that the layperson is not lost when trying to follow the arguments Headers and simple background for each topic guides the reader effectively However this topic reuires some balanced approach which is why I will next turn to a leading legal scholar who offers the opposing view before making my final opinion It seems the only fair thing to do under the circumstances and is better than trying to shut out the opposition and call them fakeKudos Mr Lichtman for opening my eyes up to new and revealing reasons that the US Congress should open impeachment proceedings soon You make some convincing arguments for the case and I wonder Mike Pence in the wings aside if there are effective reasons not to proceed Let me have a look nowLovehate the review An ever growing collection of others appears at Book for All Seasons a different sort of Book Challenge

The Case for Impeachment

Lan Lichtman the Distinguished Professor of History at American University who has correctly forecasted thirty years of presidential outcomes made headlines when he predicted that Donald J Trump would defeat Hillary Clinton to win the presidency In this timely considered volume written in clear nonpartisan terms Lichtman lays out the reasons Congress could remove Trump from the Oval Office his ties to Russia before and after the election and his possible obstruction of the investigation including firing FBI Director James Comey the complicated financial conflicts of interest at home and abroad violating the Constitution’s Emoluments Clause and his abuse of exec. My main problem with this book is that it already feels hopelessly out of date which of course is not the fault of its author but of its subject Can you imagine any current piece on impeachment that doesn t mention the firing of James Comey Or his memo Unfortunately I think the author could release an updated edition weekly and it still wouldn t be enough

    This was interesting on a whole I took a star off because of the last bit in which he tells Trump how to save his presidency The book goes in depth with all the faults of the president past and present and then we get these suggestions that he makes to the president that are completely farfetched and unbelievable given all the faults he detai
