This Will Not Pass: Two New York Times writers give a surprising, authoritative account of the 2020 election and the first year of Biden’s presidency, exposing deep cracks inside both parties as the country reaches a political tipping point.

This is the definitive narrative of an eighteen-month crisis in American democracy that will remain etched in the country’s political memory for decades.

This Will Not Pass

This book reveals the extent to which the two-party system has been strained to the point of disintegration, from Donald Trump’s assault on the 2020 election and his ongoing campaign of vengeance against his fellow Republicans to the behind-the-scenes story of Biden’s selection of Kamala Harris as his running mate and his bitter struggles to unite the Democratic Party.

As a group of aging political leaders fights to hold together a changing society, the long-established traditions and institutions of American politics are under attack more than at any time in recent history.

Martin and Burns use hundreds of interviews and never-before-seen papers and recordings from the highest levels of government to break news on almost every page. The book poses the fundamental (and troubling) question of whether American democracy, as we know it, can ever work again.

Inside the New Book by Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns

New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns write in the first major book about the Biden-Harris administration, arriving May 3, that President Biden admitted in private that he didn’t comprehend Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, who helped frustrate his boldest legislative dreams.

Take a look: “Biden’s astonishment about Sinema has been compared by a source close to the president to his trouble comprehending his grandchildren’s use of… TikTok. In “This Will Not Pass,” the authors write, “He wanted to sympathize, but he just didn’t get it.” “about the 2020 presidential race and Vice President Biden’s first year in office

“She became the first-ever senator to argue with White House aides when they ordered her to wear a face mask in the company of the president in the spring of 2021, repeatedly asking why that was required given she had been vaccinated,” according to a press release from the time.

She also advised Biden against visiting Arizona after President Obama signed the COVID rescue plan in 2021.

According to the book, Biden aides grumbled that Sinema sounded more like Republican Sen. Mitt Romney (Utah) than a Democrat:

She positioned herself as anti-tax and anti-government at a private fundraiser in D.C. with a Republican-heavy gathering of lobbyists – which hasn’t been reported previously.

She attacked Biden while praising House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy and even defending far-right Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), who claimed Antifa infiltrated the Capitol violence.

“Andy Biggs is one of my favorite actors,” she remarked. “I know some people believe he’s insane, but that’s only because they’ve never met him.”

Separately, as she pushed back on the left, Sinema warned colleagues that five or six other Senate Democratic moderates were “hiding behind my skirt.”

Between the lines: The title alludes to the fact that the current time of political turmoil will not end with the 2020 presidential election.

“There’s so much more to tell about the continued pressure in both parties,” JMart told me.

“We wanted to catch all of 2021 rather than just the campaign aftermath or Jan. 6 because there’s so much more to write about the ongoing strain in both parties.”

“Right-wing populism is a major theme. But, more broadly, we wanted to portray how the establishments of both parties are being put to the test like never before.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) called White House counsel Pat Cipollone on Jan. 6 and informed him that if President Trump didn’t act more forcefully to condemn the mob, “we’ll be asking you for the 25th Amendment” to remove Trump from office.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) voiced optimism that the incident could become a turning point in an in-person interview with the writers that afternoon after they had all been evacuated from the Senate: “‘I don’t want to be linked with that,’ people will say…

For a while, there will be a rallying effect as the country proclaims, “We’re better than this.”
“I mean, how upset can you get at Joe Biden?” Graham said, implying that Biden was the ideal candidate for the job. Matt Latimer and Keith Urbahn of Javelin represented Burns and Martin.
