A Partisan Abuse of Power
Alan Dershowitz warns that the current impeachment effort is exactly what our founders like Alexander Hamilton feared most.
Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz is a self-identified liberal Democrat. He voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. He defended Bill Clinton against impeachment in 1998. And he’s adamantly opposed to what Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats are doing today in their attempt to impeach President Trump.
In his latest opinion piece, Dershowitz warns that the current impeachment effort is a raw partisan power grab, exactly what our founders like Alexander Hamilton feared most. Consider this excerpt:
Hamilton warned of the “greatest danger” that the decision to move forward with impeachment will “be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties than the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.”
Meanwhile, former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy suggests that opponents of impeachment need to move beyond process arguments and start making the case for why Trump’s call with Ukraine’s president is not an impeachable offense. President Trump did nothing wrong.
As we have repeatedly noted, there is significant evidence of foreign involvement in the 2016 election, including between elements of our Deep State and the security agencies of other countries. That’s what U.S. Attorney John Durham is investigating.
We know that elements of the Ukrainian government played a major role in all of this. We know that former Vice President Joe Biden was assigned responsibility for managing Ukrainian foreign policy. We know there are issues of corruption involving his son. We know Biden had his own quid pro quo with Ukraine, demanding the firing of a top prosecutor.
The left-wing media desperately doesn’t want any of this to get traction.
