Alan Dershowitz: Using 25th Amendment To Oust Trump Is "Clearly An Attempt At A Coup D'Etat"

|

Retired Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz says attempting to use the 25th Amendment to circumvent an election is despicable. Dershowitz appeared on Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight," to give his take on former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s descriptions of Justice Department meetings where he said officials discussed ousting the president.

"If [McCabe’s comments are] true, it is clearly an attempt at a coup d’état," Dershowitz said.




"Any Justice Department official who even mentioned the 25th amendment in the context of President Trump has committed a grievous offense against the Constitution," Dershowitz said Thursday. "The framers had in mind something very specific, and trying to use the 25th amendment to circumvent impeachment provisions or to circumvent an election is a despicable act of unconstitutional power-grabbing."
