Counsel on Trump impeachment pens book

A former Obama administration official and House counsel who helped draft the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump has a book coming out this summer.

Norman Eisen's "A Case for the American People: The United States v. Donald J. Trump" will be released July 28, Crown announced Tuesday. Eisen served as the ethics czar under President Barack Obama and as counsel to Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee during the impeachment process.

Crown, a division of Penguin Random House, is calling the book "a detailed behind-the-scenes account of the attempts to bring the President to justice."

"As a lead drafter of the articles of impeachment, he pulls back the curtain to reveal the 10 prospective articles — not just the two publicly tried," according to Crown. "'A Case for the American People' is a gripping narrative and rousing closing argument."

The buyer is Covergirl owner Coty Inc., which will get a 20% stake in KKW Beauty. Coty seems to be enamored with the Kardashians: Last year, it bought a 51% stake in the makeup line started by Kardashian West's younger sister, Kylie Jenner.

"Kim is a true modern day global icon," said Coty CEO Peter Harf, which is similar to what he said about Jenner in November.

Kardashian West, who stars on the long-running reality TV show "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," founded KKW Beauty in 2017 and tapped into her hundreds of millions of social media followers to sell lip gloss, body foundation and perfume.

The 39-year-old will still promote KKW Beauty online and will help create new products.
