    As George Kent and Bill Taylor ready themselves to begin public testimony in the impeachment hearings of the 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump, here are a few Lit Hub deeper dives on impeachment—its historical antecedents, the way we write about it, and… why it’s probably justified.

    Rebecca Solnit on the need for impeachment · Liesl Schillinger on the case against an American king · Brenda Wineapple on lessons from the first impeachment · Evan Fleischer on the literature of impeachment · 10 essential books on the last time a Republican president was impeached.

    Uh, enjoy your day.
