The Impeachment of George W. Bush

A new book by Elizabeth Holtzman with Cynthia L. Cooper

Elizabeth Holtzman has been a US Congresswoman, the District Attorney of Brooklyn, and was Member of House panel that impeached Richard Nixon.

“Liz Holtzman’s intelligence, courage, and tenacity resulted in the impeachment of one president, in The Impeachment of George W. Bush, she reminds us why we miss her so much in Congress, and she gives us the tools powerful enough to lead to the impeachment of another president, one much more harmful and destructive to the values of our democracy.”
— CINDY SHEEHAN

From Publisher’s Weekly Review:

“…Talk of presidential impeachment is in the air. Holtzman, former congresswoman and Brooklyn D.A., and Cooper, a journalist and lawyer, have assembled a compact but thorough legal and constitutional accounting of five major issues upon which they claim the current president could be impeached… an important, comprehensive argument and document for our current political moment.”
