HMH Crashes IMPEACH: The Case Against Donald Trump

On November 26, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Books & Media will publish IMPEACH: The Case Against Donald Trump by celebrated Supreme Court lawyer and former Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal (with Sam Koppelman), making clear why he believes President Trump has left Congress with no choice but to remove him from office. Katyal explains why the Ukraine allegations are an open and shut, simple case for impeachment. Katyal argues that if President Trump is not held accountable for repeatedly asking foreign powers to interfere in the 2020 presidential election, this could very well mark the end of our democracy. To quote President George Washington’s Farewell Address: “Foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government.” Impeachment should always be our last resort, explains Katyal, but our founders, our principles, and our Constitution demand impeachment now—before it’s too late. 

“If we don’t impeach President Trump, then we will live in a country where our president is above the law—effectively writing impeachment out of our Constitution” says Katyal. “This is a moment to remind each other, and the world, of who Americans are and what we stand for.”

Bruce Nichols, SVP, Publisher at HMH Books & Media, comments, “When we first heard that Neal Katyal and Sam Koppelman had written this book, we knew we had to publish immediately. We will have books in stores one month after the manuscript is finished, and we hope every American will read it and take the authors’ arguments with the utmost seriousness.”

IMPEACH: The Case Against Donald Trump will be available in paperback, e-book, and audiobook from HMH on November 26.  

Neal Katyal is the Paul and Patricia Saunders Professor of Law at Georgetown University and a partner at a law firm where he leads one of the largest U.S. Supreme Court practices in the nation. He previously served as Acting Solicitor General of the United States (the government’s top courtroom lawyer). He has argued more Supreme Court cases in U.S. history than has any minority attorney (39 in total), recently breaking the record held by Thurgood Marshall. American Lawyer magazine recently named him the very top litigator of the year nationwide and the Justice Department awarded him the Edmund Randolph Award, the highest award the department can give a civilian. A frequent contributor to MSNBC and the New York Times, he has been named one of GQ’s Men of the Year and has appeared on virtually every major American news program, as well as House of Cards, where he played himself.
