President Donald Trump Cannot be Impeached Because Some Do Not Like Him
US President Donald Trump was well within his constitutional right to tell FBI Director James Comey not to prosecute former national security adviser Lt. General Michael Flynn.
There are just 2 remedies for those who are outraged over President Trump’s firing of James Comey after the President reportedly pressed him to drop his investigation of Flynn, they are as follows:
- Amend the Constitution, or
- Do not vote for him
“Do not try to expand the existing criminal law in violation of civil liberties to do what Joseph Stalin did, where secret police chief Lavrentiy Beria said, ‘Show me the man, I’ll give you the crime, That’s not America,” constitutional expert and Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz said Saturday.
Professor Dershowitz said impeachment is a political solution.
“The problem with impeachment is exactly what Candidate Trump did during the campaign, and you can’t impeach a President who ran and won based on all the things he’s done, all the things he’s now doing,” he said.
“There’s not that much new that would warrant either an impeachment, certainly not a criminal prosecution.”
Professor Dershowitz said and we all should agree, “I care deeply about not expanding criminal statutes to fit people we don’t like.”
Have a terrific weekend.
