“Impeachment: American Crime Story examines the national crisis that led to the first impeachment of a U.S. President in over a century through the eyes of the women at the center of the events: Monica Lewinsky, Linda Tripp and Paula Jones,” a description released with the trailer read. “All three were thrust into the public spotlight during a time of corrosive partisan rancor, shifting sexual politics and a changing media landscape.”

It is the third installment from the network, which includes “The People vs. O.J. Simpson” and “The Assassination of Gianni Versace.”

“Impeachment: American Crime Story” premieres September 7 on FX.
