Book Description

14 Aug 2001
As a former Chicago prosecutor, David Schippers thought he had seen everything -- treachery, double crosses, sell-outs. But what he saw behind the scenes at the Clinton impeachment shocked him to his core. This is his story -- the story from a man who knows more than anyone else about what went on behind closed doors leading up to the impeachment of President Clinton. David Schippers, the former Chief Investigative Counsel of the House Judiciary Committee and a loyal Democrat, went against his party, the press, and public opinion to build a powerful case against the most corrupt President in American history and bring him to justice. But in this startling book, Schippers shows how the entire impeachment process was what Chicago politicians call a 'First Ward election' -- a rigged ball game, a sellout. And he tells you who took the dives. This is a stunning indictment of President Clinton's corruption -- and of the congressional leaders who let him get away with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars David Schipper's "Sell Out" 19 Aug 2000
By Nora Templeton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Well, if anyone wants to know the real truth, just ask someone who was there. David Schippers has written a hard-hitting book, which causes one to stop and consider just how far our government has slidden from greatness into almost total darkness.
David names names and you will find out what you probably did not want to know. However, those who love this land and what it stands for will want to know the whole truth, however distasteful that may be.
I highly recommend reading this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bipartisan Bashing. 16 Nov 2000
By Christopher B. Jonnes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Anyone who cares enough about freedom and democracy to take the time to cast a vote must read David Schippers' book, "Sell Out." Schippers establishes himself as a fair and independent thinker with high integrity, and then proceeds to tell the true story behind the impeachment of Bill Clinton, revealing the liars and cowards on both sides of the aisle. It's good reading.
But the real story in this book is the revelation on what Schippers was working on before Zippergate pushed it to the sidelines. To this he devotes a few dozen pages early in the book in which he details his investigation of Al Gore's activities with the INS prior to the 1996 election. In an effort to expedite the naturalization of one million immigrants who might be more likely to vote Democratic, Team Gore pressured the INS to suspend standard background check procedures on applicants for US citizenship. The result was 75,000 convicted felons naturalized--20% of whom had re-offended as US citizens within two years--and another 168,000 naturalized without proper fingerprinting and FBI criminal history checks. Clinton/Gore imported criminals to maintain power. Literally thousands of US citizens were needlessly robbed, raped, and murdered as a result.
In light of the other Democratic voter fraud allegations such as giving away cigarettes in Milwaukee, touring the jails to register misdemeanor crooks, and the mysterious disappearing 50,000-vote Bush lead in Florida late on election night, the INS debacle is something worth reading about. Most people have never heard this story. The mainstream Press won't touch it. This is arguably the worst political offense ever committed in this country, if true. Schippers, a life-long Democrat who voted twice for Clinton, shares the facts and makes a convincing case. --Christopher Bonn Jonnes, author of Wake Up Dead.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sharp, insightful read-would've made Hillary vote 2 Impeach 22 Aug 2000
By john sollitto - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The book presents the intricacies of the wars within the impeachment battle so simply and powerfully that a readers emotions cant helped but be stirred, regardless of one's political affilation. Schippers elegantly presents Impeachment's political heroes of principal and the weak willed deal making scoundrels. Over all the book makes the reader see, sadly, the politcal process and the will of its people for what it is. It unfolds like a Greek Tragedy; a must read for political junkies, those of principle, or those that enjoy good battle.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Read This Book in Two Days 23 Aug 2000
By Andre - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
David, thank you. This is the insider account I have been waiting for. Schippers has done the nation a service by writing this account of the Impeachment investigations and proceedings. I trust him because he is a life-long Democrat who voted for Clinton twice; and because his writing displays the integrity of one who grasps the rule of law and understands the consequences when those in power get away with committing felonies. Reviewers who characterize this book as a partisan attack are simply not using their little grey cells. Schippers demonstrates his enourmous integrity by patiently facing dripping ridicule and disinformation from members of his own party. He understands that his is a reasoned argument that will persuade those who are genuinely open-minded and who are genuinely interested in the truth. His thought processes are an antidote to ideological poison on both sides. It is incredible that NOT ONE of the Senators examined the evidence, much of which was not made available to them prior to the Senate Trial. I had great hopes for President Clinton. And I used to have respect for a handful of Senators, both Democrat and Republican. Schippers demonstrates that his team, Congressman Hyde, and the House Managers were among the few who found the guts to rise above party politics and act from a principled position that endangered their political lives. If the Democrats and Republiicans are successful in spinning the Impeachment so that history fails to acknowledge Clinton's many felonies and the damage he has done, then our Nation is indeed in decline and tyranny not far away. My only mild complaint is that he was unable to name all the names. But he names enough. And don't miss the evidence he presents showing that both Clinton and Gore feloniously manipulated INS citizenship to allow tens of thousands of criminals into our country, simply to get votes for the 1996 elections. I am ashamed of this administration, and hope that the stables will finally be cleaned this November.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-read for any informed voter! 18 Oct 2000
By Jon Eric Davidson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
We are told by those in the popular media that the public is wanting to put the impeachment proceedings of 1998-1999 behind them. But, for any informed and/or educated voter, it is vitally important to know what prompted the proceedings and the dynamics behind what transpired. "Sellout" by David Schippers is that book that sheds light on the whole episode.
Mr. Schippers impressed me tremendously with the way he carried out the impeachment proceedings. Unlike anyone else involved - that goes for every politician AND every member of the media - he was perhaps the one individual who put politics aside for the sake of law and seeing justice done. He understood that what transpired was not a result of the so-called "vast right-wing conspiracy", and also understood that they couldn't just ignore the charges against President Clinton because widespread and wholesale violation of the law had occurred.
"Sellout", then, is his account of what all took place. In it, we are presented with the facts without any pretense of political bias. He admits at the outset to being a lifelong Democrat, but in the course of this book, one can find - if he or she is honest with oneself - no political bias or spin. It is, in those immortal words, "just the facts".
He describes how the Republicans in the Senate turned their backs on the law, along with the Democrats, all under the guise of "bipartisanship". Here, the reader finally gets the names of those who sabotaged the impeachment trial before it ever cleared the House of Representatives. Mr. Schippers also plots out the total lack of regard for the law in both parties, despite the overwhelming evidence, that ultimately led to a travesty of justice.
Mr. Schippers also backs up his account with the evidence that can be shown in conformity with the law. He presents partial or full transcripts from various testimony and, more remarkably, the documents showing a startling plot to naturalize immigrants (legal and illegal) in order to bolster the Democrat vote.
I must admit that I am a Republican, but I found Mr. Schippers account to be sickening in regards to how the Republicans in Congress acted. And if there was any way to have any less respect for the Democrats in Congress, this book found that way. "Throw the bums out? " After reading this book, I say "You betcha!"...Republicans and Democrats alike. This book shows that nobody in the Senate, and a great many in the House, should be able to claim that they did the right thing. Their actions did serious damage to the law and the Constitution, so they have nothing to be proud of.
I again commend Mr. Schippers for writing this book. He really came out of the impeachment proceedings as a true patriot, and does the American public a tremendous service by writing "Sellout". If anything, it makes me give even more thought to who I elect to Congress in the future. That is why I rate this book with the full 5 stars, and heartily recommend it as essential reading to voters throughout the political spectrum.
