It’s not quite “Impeachment for Dummies,” but close.
Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe and his former student Joshua Matz have signed a deal to write a helpful how-to for impeaching the president. The book, called “To End a Presidency: The Power of Impeachment,” will focus on the history of democracy’s ultimate sanction and a guide to using it right now.
That impeachment is at the front of mind for Tribe will surprise no one who follows the legal scholar on Twitter. Tribe is a vocal critic of President Trump and has been pondering the ins and outs of the Presidential Succession Act on Twitter for some time. (The act, adopted in 1947, establishes who shall exercise the powers of the presidency if neither the president nor the VP is able to.)
The book, to be published by Basic, an imprint of Hachette, will be the second Tribe has written with Matz. The two previously teamed up to write “Uncertain Justice,” about the Supreme Court under Chief Justice John Roberts.
