ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT AGAINST GEORGE W. BUSH (Melville House), a fascinating new book written by one of our nation's leading institutions of constitutional scholarship, the Center for Constitutional Rights, sets out the legal arguments for impeachment. It details four separate charges warrantless surveillance, misleading Congress on the reasons for the Iraq war, violating laws against torture, and subverting the Constitution's separation of powers. It is, say the CCR attorneys, a case of black letter law, with abundant evidence.
ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT AGAINST GEORGE W. BUSH is the first book to clearly lay out the case for impeachment, also containing the relevant laws and legal precedents. It explains what the Constitution says about impeachment, and gives a brief history of impeachment, its procedures, and previous articles of impeachment against presidents Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon, and Bill Clinton.
Melville House, the books publisher, has started an innovative new program on their website mhpbooks.com.
As the public outrage at the Bush administrations abuses of power grows, impeachment, the remedy the founding fathers wrote into the Constitution to address just such abuses, becomes more and more relevant. And the ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT AGAINST GEORGE W. BUSH is the definitive book on the subject.
