Alan Dershowitz: Second Impeachment Trial Would Provide "Loaded Gun" That Either Party Could Misuse

|

Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz told Fox News Channel's "Sunday Morning Futures" that impeaching President Trump over protesters storming the Capitol building on Wednesday would provide a "loaded weapon" to both parties that could be misused in the future.

"It will not go to trial. All the Democrats can do is impeach the president in the House of Representatives. For that, all you need is a majority vote. You don’t have to take evidence, there are no lawyers involved," Dershowitz said. "But the case cannot come to trial in the Senate because the Senate has rules and the rules would not allow the case to come to trial until – according to the majority leader – until 1 p.m. on Jan. 20, one hour after President Trump leaves office."
