Book coming from Dem House counsel on Trump impeachment

A former Obama administration official and House counsel who helped draft the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump has a book coming out this summer

Crown, a division of Penguin Random House, is calling the book “a detailed behind-the-scenes account of the attempts to bring the President to justice.”

“As a lead drafter of the articles of impeachment, he pulls back the curtain to reveal the 10 prospective articles — not just the two publicly tried,” according to Crown. “'A Case for the American People' is a gripping narrative and rousing closing argument."

Last December, the Democratic-led House impeached Trump on two counts stemming from his alleged efforts to pressure Ukraine to announce it was investigating political rival Joseph Biden, the former vice president. The Republican-led Senate acquitted Trump in February.

Eisen also is the author of “The Last Palace: Europe’s Turbulent Century in Five Lives and One Legendary House,” published by Crown in 2018.
