Trump’s Defense Teams ALREADY Picks Apart Sham Impeachment

Will this Senate trial be a walk in the park for Trump?

Recently on MSNBC’s “The Beat,” Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz, a member of Trump’s legal team, picked apart the two articles of impeachment House Democrats have impeached him for.

According to Breitbart, Dershowitz said that the obstruction of Congress charge against President Trump  “is completely made up. The president invoked his executive authority, separation of powers, checks and balances. That’s an extremely dangerous article of impeachment.”

Regarding abuse of power, Dershowitz stated, “virtually half of American presidents, from Adams, to Jefferson, to Lincoln, to Roosevelt, have been accused of abuse of power, and the framers explicitly rejected those kinds of broad, open-ended criteria. They were fearful that it would empower Congress to turn the presidency into the prime ministership of England, where the prime minister can be — have his tenure ended by a simple vote of no confidence. That’s not what the framers wanted. They wanted specific criteria for impeachment, and none of those criteria, in my view, have been met. And I will lay out that argument.”

Dershowitz added that “abuse of power, even if proved, is not an impeachable offense. That’s exactly what the framers rejected. They didn’t want to give Congress the authority to remove a president because he abused his power. They have to prove treason, they have to prove bribery, or they have to prove other crimes and misdemeanors. Other refers to crimes of the kind such as treason and bribery.” You can watch a clip of Dershowitz’s comments here.

    PERFECT! Mr. Dershowitz will slay the left. President Trump could also use Mark Levine.

    Let’s see..a Harvard LAW Professor verses Lying Adam Schiff……wow, that doesn’t even seem remotely Fair….but then since this entire episode was just another Democrat witch hunt and waste of tax payer money, it should be shut down promptly so the Congress can acxtually do some work…if that’s even possible with Pelosi running the house along with the lunatics on the left…the far far left.

      A conspiracy by trump, McConnell and some of his lawyers to defend trump is a set up. Al Capone would have gone free if he had the chance to rig his trial by meeting with the judge and jury, ala trump.

    That’s right, Levine really knows the Constitution in and out. So happy to see Dershowitz on the team.
    Our President will have a victory now, and another victory in November!!!

    It SHOULD be a “walk in the park” if it’s based in TRUTH, not the TWISTED lies of politics of the Democrats. The Democrats are going to find out what TRUTH is (including, HOPEFULLY, INDICTMENTS against Pelosi, Nadler and Schiff) when they are FORCED to testify. Let the INDICTMENTS begin afterwards . . . Team Trump and his allies 2020.

    The democrats’ chicanery, treachery and cowardice has been better known since before the time POTUS Abraham Lincoln, and the reasons why the Civil War took place. And, now .. well over a Century later, not much has really changed about the democrats deceitfulness and of their true corrupted nature and questionable character. Thus said, the US Senate can not allow to give any validity to the fact that the whole of the democrats’ premeditated intent to – forever ? – fraudulently and maliciously insane go about to cause as much damage as necessary to POTUS Trump, for as long as he remains in office. And, all of it +, while the majority of them psycho democrats – most willingly, neglectfully and intentionally – dishonor and disregard the oath of duty .. as these lying parasites steal from the hard working US taxpayers, while opting to serve their own party’s interests. The party of THIEVING, TREASONOUS, FRAUDS .. that’s what the “democrats” have turned into. So, if there’s any dignity and honor left among those who “serve” the US American people inside the US Senate .. it’s of their duty to obey our US Constitution and without any delay, they must dismiss and acquit POTUS Trump from what sham and charade of impeachment that them clowns in the House of Reprobates have came up with.
