Trump Impeachment Defense Team Suggests This Sound Defense Strategy…

As the impeachment is set to begin, this already very unpredictable impeachment drama reached a new level after one of President Trump’s top defenders on his defense team made a very alarming suggestion as to the best way to work the impeachment case.

Famed lawyer and expert in Constitutional law, Alan Dershowitz who is one of the most well-known on President Trump’s legal team has been working through everything involved with the impeachment and has come up with a pretty good idea.

He says, and rightly so, that “abuse of power” isn’t actually an impeachable offense.

According to The Hill,

Dershowitz, who’s serving as legal counsel for President Trump‘s defense team in the Senate impeachment trial, told George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week” that he is following in the footsteps of Justice Benjamin Curtis who defended President Andrew Johnson. He said Curtis had argued that proof of a crime was necessary for a president to be removed from office.

“So I am making an argument much like the argument made by the great Justice Curtis,” he said. “And to call them absurdist is to, you know, insult one of the greatest jurists in American history. The argument is a strong one. The Senate should hear it.”

He said the constitutional framers worried about “giving Congress too much power” to weaponize impeachment on a partisan basis, adding that abuse of power is too “open-ended.”

“You can’t charge a president with impeachable conduct if it doesn’t fit within the criteria for the Constitution,” Dershowitz said.

And here’s something that most people don’t even realize about Dershowitz…he’s a Democrat who voted against Donald Trump in the 2016 election.

Dershowitz said, “I’m a liberal Democrat who voted against President Trump and who voted for Hillary Clinton. I’m here to present a constitutional argument.”

This should easily demonstrate how bad this partisan impeachment is when a liberal Democrats who voted for Hillary is supporting the President.
