Famed attorney Alan Dershowitz joined Stuart Varney on Varney and Co. on Monday to discuss the ongoing coup against President Trump.
Dershowitz warned Democrats about going ahead with their unconstitutional impeachment vote.
Alan Dershowitz: Is there any possibility there was an impeachable offense? The answer is no. Take the worst, worst, worst case scenario, the president abused his foreign policy power to gain political advantage. How many presidents have done that over time? It’s not among the listed impeachable offenses. It’s not a crime. It’s not any kind of a crime. The framers has a debate on this and they rejected the concept of mal-administration as a ground for impeachment. You need to show bribery, treason or high crimes and misdemeanors. And even in the worst case scenario by phone call – It’s just not there… Look, I’m a liberal Democrat I think the worst thing Democrats can do is a vote on impeachment. He wins in the Senate. And then he uses that to win reelection.
Dershowitz then went through the list of phony accusations against President Trump:
They can’t make up crimes. We’ve had people saying:
** Disclosing the name of the whistleblower is a crime. No it’s not.
** Obstruction of Justice. That’s not a crime.
** Collusion. That’s not a crime.
** The phone call. That’s not a crime.
Dershowitz: “You can’t just make it up. To have a crime you have to have something in the statute book that existed before the actions took place and that was clear and unequivocal. It’s just not there.”
