1 CLINTON, BILL & PETER BAKER The Breach - Inside the Impeachment and Trial of William Jefferson Clinton - By Peter Baker
New York Scribner 2000 
First Edition. Laid in is an original ticket, 5 1/2” x 2 5/8”, for admission into the impeachment proceedings of former President Bill Clinton, printed in black ink on yellow card stock: “106th Congress, First Session, United States Senate Senate. Impeachment Trial of the President of the United States. Admit Bearer to the Senate Gallery.” The ticket is stamped in red ink “Jan. 08 1999” inside a ‘Date' box on the right side of the ticket, and has the image of the Great Seal of the United States printed at the upper left corner. On the verso is printed a brief set of rules and guidelines for visiting the Senate Galleries. The book is illustrated with black & white photographs tracking the course of events and key players in the impeachment process. As new in an as new dust jacket with a photograph illustration on the front panel of a pair of impeachment trial tickets. The book relates in great detail the accounts of the six-month long impeachment and trial of President Bill Clinton, which began on August 17, 1998 and ended with his acquittal on February 12, 1999. January 7, 1999, the day before this particular ticket is set for, the impeachment trial officially opened in the Senate with the reading of the charges and the swearing in of Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist and the senator-jurors. Highlighting the general sense of political drama, the Senate remained gridlocked that day on rules and recesses without coming to any agreement. On the day of this ticket, January 8, 1999, there was a closed-door party caucus meeting which broke the deadlock on procedures, which passed on the Senate floor with a vote of 100 to 0. A fascinating account of one of the most complex events in American presidential history - the first impeachment of an elected president, written by the journalist who co-wrote the original article in the Washington Post which broke the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
