Alan Dershowitz Makes Case That The President Can't Be Impeached Without A Crime

|

Alan Dershowitz took the stage Monday during the second day of President Trump's defense presentation for the Senate impeachment trial.

He said the Constitution’s requirement of "high crimes and misdemeanors" for impeachment "do not encompass the two articles charging abuse of power and obstruction of Congress."

"I would be making the very same constitutional argument had Hillary Clinton, for whom I voted, been elected, and had a Republican House voted to impeach her on these unconstitutional grounds," Dershowitz said. "I am here today because I love my country and our Constitution."

"I stood for the rights of Bill Clinton, who I admired, and whose impeachment I strongly opposed," Dershowitz said. "I stand against the application and misapplication of the constitutional criteria in every case and against any president, without regard to whether I support his or her parties or policies."

"Nothing in the Bolton revelations, even if true, would rise to the level of an abuse of power or an impeachable offense," Dershowitz also said.
