The Constitution Demands It: The Case for the Impeachment of Donald Trump

We rated this book:


George Mason, champion of the Bill of Rights, stressed the importance of impeachment in 1787, asking, “Shall any man be above justice?”

The authors of The Constitution Demands It say absolutely not.

It’s not so much the pieces of evidence the authors bring against the president as how they put everything together that makes this such an interesting and timely book.

The authors do a good job explaining the process of impeachment (though, for a really good explanation of the process, check out Barbara A. Radnofsky’s A Citizen’s Guide to Impeachment, another Melville House release). But the real strength of this short book is the evidence for impeachment and the urgency with which the authors present it.

“The purpose of impeachment is not to punish, but to protect the body politic.” The message is plain and simple – Donald Trump should not be in office.

As the authors see it, impeachment – as a Congressional process designed to protect the country – is totally separate from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. The House of Representatives has a Constitutional responsibility to defend American democracy from any and all threats.

Of course, as the authors point out, “The constitutional purposes of the impeachment process would be equally well served by Trump’s resignation as by a full Senate trial and conviction.”
