You know you’ve made it when you earn a twitter nickname from Trump. Adam Schiff got not just one, not just two, but three Trump Twitter nicknames. All because of his dogged determination to hold Trump accountable.  

From the publisher:

As Congressman Adam Schiff led the probe into Donald Trump’s Russia and Ukraine-related abuses of presidential power, Schiff came to the terrible conclusion that the principal threat to American democracy came from within. 

In Midnight in Washington, Schiff argues that the Trump presidency has so weakened our institutions and compromised the Republican Party that the peril will last for years, requiring unprecedented vigilance against the growing and dangerous appeal of authoritarianism. The congressman chronicles step by step just how our democracy was put at such risk, and traces his own path to meeting the crisis—from congressman with an expertise in national security and a reputation for bipartisanship, to liberal lightning rod, scourge of the right, and archenemy of a president. Schiff takes us inside his team of impeachment managers and their desperate defense of the constitution amid the rise of a distinctly American brand of autocracy.

Deepening our understanding of prominent public moments, Schiff reveals the private struggles, the internal conflicts, and the triumphs of courage that came with defending the republic against a lawless president—but also the slow surrender of people that he had worked with and admired to the dangerous immorality of a president engaged in an historic betrayal of his office. Schiff’s fight for democracy is one of the great dramas of our time, told by the man who became the president’s principal antagonist. It is a story that began with Trump but does not end with him, taking us through the disastrous culmination of the presidency and Schiff’s account of January 6, 2021, and how the anti-democratic forces Trump unleashed continue to define his party, making the future of democracy in America more uncertain than ever. 

In conversation with award-winning actress, author, and activist Jamie Lee Curtis, known for her wit and intellect. Knives Out, True Lies, A Fish Called Wanda, Freaky Friday, Trading Places, and of course the many Halloween reprisals represent only a fraction of the dozens of films in which she has starred. She is the recent recipient of the Golden Lion Award from the Venice Film Festival, in recognition of her great achievements in film. She is the author of numerous children’s books, and is outspoken about many social issues, from the environment to plastic surgery.
