Trump.Impeachment will ’proceed from the misconduct of public men, or, in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust,’ and ‘they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself. ’(Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist, 1788)Professor Allan J. Lichtman, who has correctly forecasted thirty years of presidential elections, makes the case for impeaching the 45th president of the United States, Donald J. TrumpIn the fall of 2016, Distinguished Professor of History at American University Allan Lichtman made headlines when he predicted that Donald J. Trump would defeat Democrat, Hillary Clinton, to win the presidential election.Now, 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, the complicated financial conflicts of interest at home and abroad, and his abuse of executive authority.The Case for Impeachment also offers a fascinating look at presidential impeachments throughout American history, including the often-overlooked story of Andrew Johnson’s impeachment, details about Richard Nixon’s resignation, and Bill Clinton’s hearings. Lichtman shows how Trump exhibits many of the flaws (and more) that have doomed past presidents. As the Nixon Administration dismissed the reporting of Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein as ‘character assassination’ and ‘a vicious abuse of the journalistic process,’ Trump has attacked the ‘dishonest media,’ claiming, ‘the press should be ashamed of themselves.’Historians, legal scholars, and politicians alike agree: we are in politically uncharted waters. The durability of institutions is being undermined and the public’s confidence in them is eroding, threatening American democracy itself.The world wants to know where the United States is headed. Lichtman argues, with clarity and power, that for Donald Trump’s presidency, smoke has become fire.‘Lichtman has written what may be the most important book of the year’ The Hill‘Important … Lichtman beautifully tells the story of the use of Impeachment’ Washington Book Review‘Lichtman's powerful book is a reminder that we are only at the start of the Trump investigations. The US system takes a long time to gather speed. Once it does, it can be hard to stop’ Financial Times‘You need to read ‘The Case for Impeachment’, a brilliant analysis of every fraudulent act committed by the child in the White House’ Counterpunch‘[Lichtman's] book is a pretty substantial case for why Donald Trump should not have been president at all…’The Case for Impeachment’ is a good backdrop for conversations that will likely remain a part of our national dialogue for some time’ New York Journal of Books‘It 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 PostALLAN J. LICHTMAN is a Distinguished Professor of History at American University in Washington, DC, and is the author of many prize-winning books including The Keys to the White House and Predicting the Next• THE CASE FOR IMPEACHMENT details Paul Manafort’s connections to pro-Russian Ukrainians, his lobbying onbehalf of these foreign interests in the United States, his failure to register as a foreign agent, and his businessdealings with Russians. These findings of the book are all reflected in the Special Counsel’s indictment.• THE CASE FOR IMPEACHMENT examines how under Manafort’s direction as chair, the Trump campaign quasheda Republican platform plank to arm anti-Russian Ukrainians. The book points out that this intervention featuresin the now heavily-publicized dossier compiled by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele as a keyquid pro quo from Trump in return for Russian help in winning the election. The book shows that both Trump andManafort initially lied about the campaign’s involvement in the platform operation.• The updated paperback version of THE CASE FOR IMPEACHMENT examines the many implications of the June2016 meeting with Kremlin-connected Russians that Manafort attended with Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner.The email chain leading up to the meeting identifies its purpose to pass on “information that would incriminateHillary” as “part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.”• The updated paperback version of THE CASE FOR IMPEACHMENT shows that Manafort offered a private briefingon the campaign to Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, who has close ties to President Putin. Deripaska may be oneof the unnamed Russians who figures in the case that the Special Prosecutor has so far leveled against Manafort.• The Special Counsel has a solid, documentary case against Manafort that parallels many findings of THE CASEFOR IMPEACHMENT and puts him at risk for a lengthy prison term. If Manafort becomes a cooperating witness inreturn for a plea deal he will have a great deal to say about potentially impeachable offenses committed byDonald Trump. Manafort reported only to Trump as campaign chair.
