The former US Congresswoman "offers the Watergate investigation as a model for the kind of open, wide-ranging inquiry that she argues is necessary." The New York Review of Books
Elizabeth Holtzman has been a principled leader and a persistent voice for equality and accountability since she became the youngest woman ever elected to Congress in 1973, which she remained for forty-two years. But she saw American democratic ideals, and the rule of law in the United States, eroding under President Trump. And as a member of the House Judiciary Committee that voted to impeach Nixon, and one of the members of the Homeland Security advisory council who resigned in protest of President Donald Trump's policy of separating families at the border, former Congresswoman Holtzman knows of which she speaks.
The Case for Impeaching Trump establishes the requirements for impeachment as set out by the Constitution and proves that President Trump's actions met those requirements. Holtzman makes the definitive, constitutional case that impeachment was justified.
"Elizabeth Holtzman has always been the first and the bravest, the smartest and most trusted. She is the expert we need to deal with an accidental President who got there as a serial sexual harasser, a candidate who lost the popular vote, and an unsuccessful businessman who was born on third base and thinks he hit a home run. Now what? Ask Liz!" Gloria Steinem
