Read this book.

You probably will not like it. It will not make you feel good. It may even make you want to throw up. However, having lived through these momentous events in our history, perhaps with only the media's version of the "facts," you need to know what this book has to say. A small group of Congressmen knowingly sacrificed their careers to prevent our flag from touching the ground as it symbolically fell from the highest office in our land. Here is the inside story from a real-life American hero.

A stirring page-turner. Highly recommended.

Whether you believe that Bill Clinton was guilty or innocent, you would do well to read this book.

Congressman James Rogan knew that he was probably ending his own political career by serving as one of the House Managers in the impeachment trial of William Jefferson Clinton.

There was a stunning contrast in the principled approach the House took as opposed to the politically expedient approach of the Senate.

The book contains some amazing stories involving James Rogan, Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy - decades before Rogan's election to the House of Representatives.

Judge Rogan ends the book with a quote attributed to Carole Lombard: "When you fight for what you believe in, the end result doesn't matter. You've already won."

This book is history. Rogan kept a diary. He records for us what happens as the impeachment investigation goes forward from the time he finds himself on the Judiciary Committee. The Clinton years, all the scandals, the things that were supposed to be in that impeachment referral, all of that I knew. I didn't want to know it. I doubt anyone did. The Clinton Administration was my wake up call, and the beginning of my close attention to Washington DC and the machinations of the political classes. Amazingly, media is as asleep today as it was during Clinton's time. I'm only half way, and I've raged and cried already. Rogan knows how to write, and how to keep you interested.

I was one of Congressman Rogan's constituents during the impeachment drama and volunteered on his last campaign in 2000. My wife summed the whole thing up "I can't believe Bill Clinton kept his job and Jim Rogan lost his". How true.
This book reveals so much more than was covered in the media. Rogan and the other House Managers felt that the Constitution should prevail over opinion polls. At the time even I, a Republican, was not sure impeachment was the right thing. After reading this book, I understand and believe that there were indeed high crimes and misdemeanors committed by the President of the United States. We all should have paid more attention and been more outraged. Jim Rogan should have kept his job.
Jim Rogan now sits as a Judge in Orange County Superior Court. My congressional district's loss was the California courts' gain.

"Catching our Flag" is by far the best political book I have ever read. No matter your personal feelings about the Clinton impeachment and events surrounding this period of our history, James Rogan's first hand account backed up by his own diary entries as the events unfolded kept my interest throughout. He told the story that nobody else can tell. His resolve to do the right thing to preserve the US Constitution for future generations through the setting of "precedent" speaks to his courage and character. Although it ultimately cost him his seat in Congress, the loss is ours as there are very few people in politics today with his ethics and honor who are willing to go against the grain to do the right thing.

If you want to know what really happened behind the scenes, you must read this book. Revisionist historians who want to downplay or minimize Clinton's guilt will hate this book. Rogan was the only one close to the action who took copious notes documenting every detail. It includes contemporaneous conversations he had with colleagues, journalists and pundants of all political stripes -- and even members of Clinton's defense team. The fact that none of them have come forward to pointedly dispute what he has written tells me all I need to know about the veracity of this book. Future generations now have access to the facts surrounding the impeachment of Bill Clinton. They have James Rogan to thank for it.

Format: Hardcover
Had difficulty putting this down. The character and integrity of the author and those he served with are inspiring in and of themselves. The elitist prigs in the Senate that did everything they could to avoid their Constitutionally sworn duty was telling and reflects the political realities we are seeing today. The Senators mocking the admonition from Rogan to do your Constitutionally sworn duty the same way as anyone serving on a jury is sickening. The nuts and bolts hard core political war waged by the progressives and their willing accomplices on the right goes beyond pale. Little nuggets such as Larry Flint threatening to out everyone who votes for impeachment and the destruction of political careers that resulted give one reasons not to seek a career in politics. One reflection that hit home was the value of moral authority Rogan exemplified and the cost of loosing it seen in the lives of those who put practicality over principle. As important as the historical record of The Clinton Impeachment, are the life lessons to be learned. I highly recommend this book.
