The Case Against Impeaching Trump is more of a collection of Alan M. Dershowitz's thoughts and columns, and Sunday morning news shows' transcripts than it is a deep dive into impeachment. Having already read Dershowitz's columns and having watched him regularly on news shows, there was little new information for me.

Several points in the book directly respond to positions taken by Laurence Tribe and Joshua Matz in their excellent book about impeachment, To End a Presidency: The Power of Impeachment. At times, I found myself wondering whether Dershowitz authored his book just because Tribe and Matz wrote theirs.

Still, Dershowitz is one of the best legal minds and scholars, and his thoughts and positions are important to understanding the issues related to impeachment, presidential power and immunity, and the ongoing investigations. If you have not read his columns from the past year, The Case Against Impeaching Trump pulls it all together in a cohesive well-organized manner. If you regularly read and watch Dershowitz, The Case Against Impeaching Trump will leave you feeling shorted.
