“Impeachment is not a constitutional crisis. Impeachment is the cure for a constitutional crisis.”

This book, written by a trio of veteran constitutional attorneys, details a short, concise argument that says the founding fathers foresaw the current American situation, and invented impeachment for exactly this scenario. They differ from others, such as Laurence Tribe, who rhetorically advocate prosecuting Donald Trump through the criminal justice system. Anticipating that the Democrats will take over Congress in the fall election, they provide a precise case for Congress to use as a handbook, including detailed articles of impeachment.

With a foreword by The Nation’s John Nichols.


“We are in the midst of a constitutional crisis. This book lays out the case for impeachment against Donald Trump in stark terms. If you are troubled about Trump’s lawlessness, I think it is your responsibility as a concerned citizen to read this book and to learn how best to protect our democracy.” —Tom Steyer

“Finally, a book about impeachment that lays out the facts about what President Donald Trump has done, the legal and constitutional principles he’s violated, and a clear case for why Congress should start impeachment hearings right away. You can read this book in one sitting and you’ll be ready to answer tired arguments for delay and diversion with the facts and the Constitution.” —Alyssa Milano

“In a time when so much of political discourse has degenerated to tweets and Nazi slogans, it’s a relief to see a straightforward, coherent and compelling delineation of the case for impeachment. The only way to return our country to a semblance of normalcy is to impeach the kleptocrat-in-chief, and this book is exactly the guide we need to show us how.” —Ayelet Waldman

“Donald J. Trump is probably the most corrupt and inept U.S. president in modern history. He has violated the Constitution and this nation’s laws with impunity. His impeachable offenses are legion and are expertly detailed in this book. It is a must-read for every voter and citizen interested in good government.” —Montana Supreme Court Justice (ret.) James C. Nelson

“Our democracy is imperiled. Lawlessness, corruption, and cruelty emanate from Washington, DC.  Many of our fellow Americans and citizens of the world feel helpless as we careen from crisis to crisis. The founding fathers—though flawed beings who allowed slavery and the mistreatment of women, Native Americans, and those without wealth to flourish—nonetheless provided us with an effective tool to combat the excesses of the current administration. The Constitution Demands It: The Case for the Impeachment of Donald Trump lays out the legal framework for impeachment. There are those who feel that impeachment is too radical a notion. Each day that we fail to push back as powerfully as we are able is a day closer to an authoritarian takeover of our nation. The country you save may be your own.” —Eva Paterson, Civil Rights Attorney
