I recently acted as special counsel to the Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee from 2019 to 2020, including for the impeachment and trial of President Donald J. Trump. I previously served as ethics czar for President Obama and then as his ambassador to the Czech Republic. A Case for the American People: The United States vs. Donald J. Trump is my third book.
In A Case for the American People, I lay out President Trump’s shocking pattern of betrayals, lies, and high crimes, arguing the articles of impeachment to the ultimate judges: the American people.
I will take you behind the scenes of the impeachment trial. You will read the ten proposed articles of impeachment, not just the two that were publicly tried. Since taking the oath of office, Donald Trump has been on a spree of high crimes and misdemeanors, using the awesome power of the presidency for his own personal gain, at the expense of the American people. He has inflamed our divisions for his electoral benefit, with flagrant disregard for the Constitution that makes us America. Each step of the way, he has lied incessantly, including to cover up his crimes. And yet he remains in the country’s highest office.
I look forward to answering your questions about the book, my work on the House Judiciary Committee, and the future of our country. You can read more about my work on my website, or by following me on Twitter.
