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. 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)
In The Case for Impeachment
, Professor Lichtman lays out the reasons why Congress removing Donald J. Trump has become a matter of ‘when' not ‘if'. Shedding some light on the consequences of his ties with Russia before and after the election, complicated financial conflicts of interest at home and abroad and abuse of executive authority, this is an authoritative and comprehensive analysis of the most controversial presidency since Richard Nixon.
