Prosecuting the President

How Special Prosecutors Hold Presidents Accountable and Protect the Rule of Law

Andrew Coan

  • First book on special prosecutors aimed at a general audience
  • Contains many dramatic stories and colorful characters
  • Explains the relationship between special prosecutors and democracy
  • Helps readers understand these very important and little-understood officials, who are especially salient because of the Robert Mueller investigation
  • Places modern-day special prosecutors in historical perspective, showing that they have always been attacked by Presidents, mostly without justification
  • Disabuses readers of fantasy that the legal system/special prosecutors alone will restrain a criminal President
  • Fosters readers' understanding of their own important role as citizens
