Inside the Impeachment of Donald J. Trump

How do you stop a rogue president?

How do you protect our country from a man who lies, who obstructs justice, and who seeks to cheat with foreign powers to get reelected?

Our constitution offers one remedy: impeachment. Thanks to the courageous actions of public servants who came forward to report his abuses of power, on December 18, 2019, President Donald J. Trump became just the third president in U.S. history to be impeached by the House of Representatives. In Endgame, Congressman Eric Swalwell offers his personal account of his path to office and how he and his colleagues resisted, investigated, and impeached a corrupt president.

Of all the characters the Intelligence Committee interviewed in gathering information that led to the impeachment of President Trump, Roger Stone – the president’s longtime political confidante and self-proclaimed dirty trickster – may have been among the most odious. But despite Stone’s renowned bluster and bravado, the interview didn’t go quite as anyone expected…

Endgame is an inside look from a member of the House Intelligence and Judiciary committees at what happened in the months leading up to and during the impeachment of the President of the United States, and what it means for our nation’s immediate future.

Our current pandemic and racial crises, John Bolton’s late revelations, and the Russian bounty scandal once again have underscored that President Trump puts his personal political interests above the needs of the American people. The book not only gives readers an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at impeachment but also how it set the stage for this November’s election, and what’s at stake now.

“Endgame is the story of courage triumphing over corruption to impeach President Trump. It’s my inside account of America’s public servants stepping up and Congress taking action to try to rein in a president who put his own interests over national security and our elections’ integrity,” says author Eric Swalwell.

Swalwell’s experience as a prosecutor and his position as a member of both the House Intelligence and House Judiciary committees offer him an important role in—and view on—Trump’s actions and his impeachment. Readers will be fascinated by his unique and personal perspective on this momentous historic event.

“The next best thing to being in the room where it happened, this insider’s account of the Trump impeachment is both wise and personal. It doesn’t hurt that the supersmart author is a sure bet to be a major player in our nation’s future.”

“In an administration where a lot of effort is invested in hiding the truth from the public, Congressman Swalwell’s firsthand account makes for very interesting reading. Here are the details of what is really happening in the halls of Congress and what really happened during the House’s impeachment investigation. It’s a must-read for any serious student of the Trump administration.”
