    Since Trump got elected, I’ve been addicted to MSNBC, and my third favorite legal analysts there (right after my all-time favorites, Chuck Rosenberg and Joyce Vance) is Neale Katyal, who is the Saunders professor at Georgetown Law, and a practicing a lawyer who has argued more than three dozen cases before the US Supreme Court. During the years 2010–2011, he was acting solicitor general of the United States, and, as a young Justice Department lawyer in 1998 and 1999, he drafted the special Since Trump got elected, I’ve been addicted to MSNBC, and my third favorite legal analysts there (right after my all-time favorites, Chuck Rosenberg and Joyce Vance) is Neale Katyal, who is the Saunders professor at Georgetown Law, and a practicing a lawyer who has argued more than three dozen cases before the US Supreme Court. During the years 2010–2011, he was acting solicitor general of the United States, and, as a young Justice Department lawyer in 1998 and 1999, he drafted the special counsel statute which established the parameters for Robert Mueller’s recent investigations. Impeach is a short, plainly written book with one purpose: to convince the American people that Donald Trump deserves to be impeached, and should be impeached now, for we must not wait and “let the election decide”: In many ways, both political parties would be better off it President Trump’s fate were determined on Election Day. But the challenge we face is this: President Trump has shown that he will do everything in his power, legal and illegal, to ensure he wins reelection, even if that means working with a foreign power to undermine our democracy. So asking us to wait until the election to remove him from office is like asking to resolve a dispute based on who wins a game of Monopoly—when the very crime you’ve been accused of is cheating at Monopoly. Katyal believes Trump fully deserves impeachment according to what he calls “The Pence Standard.” after a speech Mike Pence made as to the Judiciary Committee in July of 2008: ”This business of high crimes and misdemeanors goes to the question of whether or not the person serving as President of the United States put their own interests, their personal interests, ahead of public service.” Katyal believes—as I do—that the “transcript” of Trump’s call to Zelensky (supported by the testimony of dedicated civil servants to the doings of Guliani and “The Three Amigos” in Ukraine) clearly demonstrates that Trump has placed his own personal interests ahead of our nation's interest, and has used the power of the presidency to pressure and attempt to bribe the leader of a foreign country. In addition, the fact that he has gotten away with such conduct up until now makes the situation more dire: I believe that if we fail to hold President accountable for what he did in 2019—for what he’s doing right now—we might lose our democracy altogether in 2020. The book—as you would expect it to be—is cogently argued, and the prose is forceful too. In addition, Impeach possesses a useful appendix which contains: the whistleblower complaint, the July 25th call summary, the Volker/Taylor/Sondland text messages, and Pat Cippolone’s White House letter in response to the House. I recommend this book highly. If you want a clear, concise argument in favor of impeachment, you will find everything you require in Neal Katyal’s Impeach.

    I am not going to write a wild-eyed diatribe on why I think President Trump should be impeached. I'm going to review former US solicitor Neal Katyal's new book - written in three weeks - "Impeach: The Case Against Donald Trump". Yes, I think Trump should be impeached and convicted - the key word here is "convicted", because two presidents have been impeached by the House but not convicted by the Senate, so they didn't leave office.

And, yes, Neal Katyal and Sam Koppelman believe in the same thing, and wrote this book to explain to the political and legal laymen that the process to impeach would be. Katyal examines the history of impeachment as it was formed in James Madison’s “Federalist No. 51”, stating “If all men were angels, there would be no need for government”. He follows through the impeachments (but no convictions) of Presidents Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton. Then he goes on to the case of President Donald Trump. Neal Katyal is a good writer and explains the “Pence Standard”, which was Congressman Mike Pence’s ideas in 2008 about the who’s and what’s of impeachment. Funnily enough, they cover today’s reasons quite nicely. At this point, we have just finished the first part of the impeachment inquiry. It’s Thanksgiving 2019 and we’re going to be gathered with friends and family, where at many tables, the political talk will be fast and furious. I do think Neal Katyal’s book will help the pro-impeachmenters explain their reasons.

    I read this in paperback by Canongate. Well put together as there is a lot of information here and for most of us this information will be read and know about for the first time.

    Extremely helpful As I read the book, I was amazed at the amount of recent information included. Revisions must have been occurring till the last second. I was also amazed by the clarity and readability. Not all legal minds write as clearly and succinctly. Thank you, Neal Katyal and Sam Koppelman. History will decide whether your suggested post-Trump reforms will occur, but it is obvious that reform is needed to prevent another such disaster.

    The best feature of the book is that it puts everything that has transpired into historical and legal context. Neal clarifies the convoluted and often debated “high crimes and misdemeanors” written in the constitution that warrant impeachment. Crimes are not necessarily the crimes specified in laws or regulations but, as Hamilton puts in the federalist papers, “abuse or violation of public trust”.

Crimes are not necessarily the crimes specified in laws or regulations but, as Hamilton puts in the federalist papers, “abuse or violation of public trust”. There is a clear violation of public trust here. The Q&A section on impeachment was very informative. If the president is found guilty even in just one count out of many, he will be removed. What is scary is that enforcement of the law rests on “faithful enforcement” by the very people that may be implicated in violating public’s trust. Regardless of the enforcement entity, the law should be automatic in forcing people to comply, which is not the case now. At the end of the day, even with the clear violation of public trust, the ultimate decision resides with the people. Jurors of impeachment are biased and influenced by public opinion; especially their constituents. Given the best economy, lowest unemployment in generations, highest consumer confidence, fewer wars and security threats, and highest approval among republican voters, I doubt the public’s opinion will be swayed by just moral argument. Only time will tell. Overall, the book is short and great!

    Trump has now been impeached. Does it matter? As one Trump supporter said on Fox News, "only if you care about the facts." Some people do. Some people don't. If you do, this book may be for you. Katyal lays out the facts that led to Trump's impeachment, inasmuch as we know them now, and the process used by Congress to hold him accountable for his actions. He discusses the legal arguments, including the reasons Americans like Alexander Hamilton and James Madison feared foreign interference in our Trump has now been impeached. Does it matter?

He discusses the legal arguments, including the reasons Americans like Alexander Hamilton and James Madison feared foreign interference in our elections. He explains the impeachment process, and addresses the differences and similarities between this impeachment and that of Johnson and Nixon. The book is brief and straight forward, like the facts in this case. It's not complicated when the defendant admits his guilt and bases his entire defense on the supposed triviality of his crime. As Americans we simply need to decide whether our laws are so trivial that the President is above them. It comes back to the question: Does it matter? Or should we just get over it, and allow other nations, even enemy nations, to participate in opposition research for the candidate of their choice...

    So I am not a Donald Trump fan - never have been, never will be - which meant that reading this book I wasn’t trying to be convinced of anything. The book was clear and laid out why Trump should be impeached based on his behavior. It had a history of how our founders cane to include impeachment as an option for our government to undertake, when it has been used, discussed the specifics of Trump’s situation and how his behavior qualifies as impeachable behavior, etc. It is actually rather So I am not a Donald Trump fan - never have been, never will be - which meant that reading this book I wasn’t trying to be convinced of anything.

The book has several included document copies in the appendix for readers to review. Honestly, my only complaint with it is that it seemed really repetitive. Maybe the author does that to hammer home his points to people on the fence? I just felt like I read the same thing in every chapter, which made it less interesting to me. Still a very good read for anyone who wants to understand Trump’s actions in the context of how they relate to impeachment.

    While it seemed like another of a couple of hundred Trump-tell-alls, Impeach by Neal Katyal stands out to me. It's very well written and maintains academic and scholarly integrity while still following a gripping narrative. The Ukraine issue was dealt in great detail and I was surprised as to how absurd the situation is even compared to mainstream reporting so far. It was also neat that this issue was analysed in comparison with previous similar instances including and beyond Watergate.

The history of impeachment and its role in American history itself also made fascinating reading. Clearly, the Trump impeachment situation is even more of a dumpster-fire than I realised. And the pace of the story and its twist and turns are so rapid and unpredictable that a lot has changed in the 1.5 months since publication. But I think that still makes this book a worthwhile read to get perspective on what impeachment means for the future of American presidency and society itself.

    This book will not persuade or change anyone’s views. I wanted to read it more for the historical perspective because I’m too lazy to actually read Federalist #65 or to listen to hours and hours of constitutional law professors (been there, done that). That part of the book was interesting, if a bit dry. He did a good job of explaining the “high” in “high crimes and misdemeanors.” As for the rest, anyone who pays attention to current events will be familiar with most of it.

    Although Katyal expresses early that he does not like Trump, in the book he sticks to "rule of law." He advises anyone to look at the other side and ask, "How would I feel about this if it were Obama.?" Katyal explains the points under consideration in the upcoming impeachment trial and the history and thinking of the founding fathers who absolutely included the possibility in our guiding documents. I'm very glad I read it.

    To say this book is "topical" is quite an understatement. Katyal is one of my favorite talking heads during the descendence of 45, and he's also a good Twitter follow as the story develops in real time. How this book could be so current will amaze you - breaking a few of the usual publishing-calendar barriers, no doubt.

    The first half of the book was review for anyone who has tracked Trump's high crimes, misdemeanors and general boorish, self-involved behavior since 2015. Katyal and Koppelman explain the reasons why impeachment was part of the constitution, and how it's been used, over 250 years. And they explicate legal arguments for/against impeachment, the process.

    For a succinct, well-reasoned and powerful argument for impeachment, look no further than Neal Katyal's small tome "Impeach." Katyal methodically marches through the history of impeachment under the Constitution, the facts behind the Trump-Ukraine scandal, why impeachment is appropriate in light of such facts, and the possible protocols for the impeachment trial.

Katyal methodically marches through the history of impeachment under the Constitution, the facts behind the Trump-Ukraine scandal, why impeachment is appropriate in light of such facts, and the possible protocols for the impeachment trial. Katyal makes a strong argument that (i) even though the Mueller allegations did not rise to the level of an impeachable offense (at least in Katyal's thinking), the Ukraine ones certainly do; and (ii) if you apply the same facts to Obama, or any other president of your own political persuasion, and would vote to impeach, then you owe it to hold Trump to that same standard. What is fascinating about the Trump-Ukraine scandal is that it seems to be a clear-cut case of abuse of power that directly implicates the national interests: not the tangential, if personally scandalous, stuff of Clinton's impeachment and the cobbled-together case against Andrew Johnson for partisan reasons. Trump's actions reflect the worst parts of Watergate; however, The Donald stands a greater chance of remaining in office than Tricky Dick. That may say more about our society, and how divided the nation is in 2019, then whether Trump in fact committed high crimes and misdemeanors.

Trump solicited interference in the 2020 election from a foreign government. This, by itself, is enough. He asked for interference (announcing an investigation into a main political opponent), that interference is a thing of value, and that is the crime. He then bribed Ukrainian President Zelensky (if you had any doubt about the use of this term, you will not if you read this text. Bribery is the offer of a positive reward for compliance with an act in one’s favor). DJT has subsequently gagged all WH employees from cooperating. He is obstructing a constitutional and lawful investigation that is Constitutionally enshrined. Three clear articles for impeachment are therefore available. All salient documents are reproduced in the Appendices (the very careful and clear whistleblower complaint, the jaw-droppingly immature letter from Pat Cipollone, the president’s counsel, to the Congress, and others). Of course, as Katyal says: “Trump will not be impeached by Article I, Section 4; or by Article 1, Section 3; or by Article 1, Section 9. Those words are mere parchment. President Trump will be impeached by human beings…” (p155) So Congress will decide this. The Senate will. Some of those individuals were capable of integrity once. Perhaps again. This business of high crimes and misdemeanors goes to the question of whether or not the person serving as President of the United States put their own interests, their personal interests, ahead of public service. -p119, Mike Pence, 2008

Author Neal Katyal is a former acting solicitor general of the United States, a leading Supreme Court lawyer, and a professor of law at Georgetown University where, his bio states, he has taught impeachment 29 times. So this is a subject with which he is quite familiar. As the subtitle suggests, Katyal outlines a clear case for impeachment of the current president in this book, and why he believes it is necessary. But it's worth a read even if you disagree with him on that point, because it's a highly readable, concise little primer on the subject generally (just 158 pages of text, 214 if you include the appendix). Katyal delves into the history and constitutional background of impeachment, why the founders of the United States chose to include it in the constitution, how it's been used in the past (most notably during the presidencies of Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton), and how it works. He concludes with recommendations of laws that Congress could and should pass to prevent future abuses of presidential power. There's also an appendix of documents pertaining to the Trump impeachment (including the whistleblower complaint of August 2019, and the summary of the July 25th call between President Trump and President Zelenskyy of Ukraine). Four stars.
