Dershowitz: Dems Picked ‘Dangerous’ Impeachment Charges, Bolton Book Leak ‘Does Not Constitute an Impeachable Offense’

10

If you didn’t see Alan Dershowitz’s address last night, watch it. It is a lesson in history, ethics, and Constitutional law. And he makes a stunning case for dismissal.

As for the latest marketing blitz for the Bolton book, I have known John Bolton for the past 15 years and this is not the John Bolton that I know. He hasn’t said anything. Everyone is responding to left-elite propaganda points.

Fred Fleitz: Ambassador Bolton, withdraw your book

FOX: Harvard Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz, delivering a spirited constitutional defense of President Trump at his Senate impeachment trial Monday night, flatly turned toward House impeachment managers and declared they had picked “dangerous” and “wrong” charges against the president — noting that neither “abuse of power” nor “obstruction of Congress” was remotely close to an impeachable offense as the framers had intended.

In a dramatic moment, the liberal constitutional law scholar reiterated that although he voted for Hillary Clinton, he could not find constitutional justification for the impeachment of a president for non-criminal conduct, or conduct that was not at least “akin” to defined criminal conduct.

Dershowitz: Trump’s Conduct in Leaked Bolton Book Manuscript ‘Does Not Constitute an Impeachable Offense’

By Mairead McArdle, National Review, January 28, 2020 9:21 AM

Alan Dershowitz, a member of President Trump’s legal team, told the Senate during arguments Monday that even if President Trump explicitly orchestrated a quid pro quo by dangling Ukrainian military aid, as alleged in a leaked excerpt of John Bolton’s book, that would still not constitute an impeachable offense.

The New York Times reported Sunday that in his upcoming book, former national security adviser John Bolton says President Trump told him personally in August that the provision of military aid to Ukraine was contingent on the opening of an investigation into Joe Biden.

“Even if a president, any president, were to demand a quid pro quo as a condition to sending aid to a foreign country, obviously a highly disputed manner in this case, that would not by itself constitute an abuse of power,” Dershowitz said.

“Quid pro quo alone is not a basis for abuse of power,” the former Harvard law professor continued. “It’s part of the way that foreign policy has been operated by presidents since the beginning of time. The claim that foreign policy decisions can be deemed abuses of power based on subjective opinions about mixed or sole motives, that the president was interested only in helping himself, demonstrates the dangers of employing the vague subjective and malleable phrase of abuse of power as a constitutional criteria for the removal of a president. Based on this reasoning, the new information the Times said appears in Bolton’s book “would not constitute an impeachable offense,” Dershowitz said.
