President Trump has left the US people with no choice but to remove him from office, so explains celebrated Supreme Court lawyer and former Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal.

In this short book he tells you everything you need to know about the impeachment process: its history, what it is, and how it works - before laying out the impartial case for why Donald Trump must be impeached.

No one is above the law. This belief is as fundamental as life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness - held sacred by Democrats and Republicans alike. But as celebrated Supreme Court lawyer and former Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal argues in Impeach, 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 US 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 a last resort, explains Katyal, but the founders, core principles, and the Constitution leave no choice but to impeach President Trump - before it's too late.
