Like it, or not, Americans have had a ringside seat on what historians will someday chronicle as one of the most divisive and destructive periods within American politics, where the rule-of-law was purposely usurped by elected lawmakers in willfully attempting to use the power of impeachment to undo a duly elected.

Moreover, Constitutional scholars like renowned Professors Jonathan Turley and Alan Dershowitz have painstakingly detailed within their respective articles, speeches, and proceedings regarding constitutional and statutory issues, and the standard required to impeach an elected official, under our Constitution.

Although both Law Professors identify themselves as politically liberal, they have nevertheless been steadfastly devoted to the ideals and principles inscribed within our founding documents, without prejudice or reservation.

Those unwavering principles within this caustic political climate has rendered these two individuals within the esteemed liberal world of academia, as “persona-non-grata,” unwelcome outcasts among their former colleagues.

Professor Dershowitz has appeared on Fox News during the impeachment hearings, providing constitutional analysis regarding the somber issue of impeachment, and has surmised that Democrats have willfully used the instrument of impeachment in a reckless and dangerous way, giving little thought to the consequences of their actions for future administrations.

The admired professor from Harvard Law School and author of “The Case Against the Democratic House Impeaching Trump” and “Guilt by Accusation, scorched Democrats for pushing two articles of impeachment that simply do not meet constitutional standards.

In an op-ed article published in “The Hill” Professor Dershowitz lays out in detail, perhaps the most brazen willful act of malfeasance, ever concocted by Democratic lawmakers in recreating a series of “impeachable offenses” that are traditionally constitutional privileges afforded to the executive branch, since the founding of our nation.

Dershowitz writes; “House Democrats have announced the grounds of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress on which they plan to seek the impeachment of President Trump. Neither of these proposed articles satisfies the express constitutional criteria for an impeachment, which are limited to “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.” Neither are high or low crimes or misdemeanors. Neither are mentioned within the Constitution.

Adding; “Both are so vague and open-ended that they could be applied in partisan fashion by a majority of the House against almost any president from the opposing party. Both are precisely what the Framers had rejected at their Constitutional Convention. Both raise the “greatest danger,” in the words of Alexander Hamilton, that the decision to impeach will be based on the “comparative strength of parties,” rather than on “innocence or guilt.”

The op-ed concludes with an ominous warning from Dershowitz; “This is all uncharted ground, and it is difficult to predict how it will play out in the short term. In the long term, it is highly unlikely that President Trump will be removed by a two-thirds vote in the Senate controlled by Republicans. However, in the meantime, the unconstitutional action by a majority of the House to impeach a president on grounds not specified in the Constitution will certainly do considerable damage to the rule of law.”

Sounding the alarm bell even further, House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Doug Collins (R-GA) on Tuesday blasted Democrats for their repeated ascertains that President Trump committed an egregious act worthy of impeachment, however, when Collins pushed House Democrats on specifically what crime did the President commit, Democrats fell silent.

“Look, we can have plenty of time to talk about the very vague articles that we did. It’s interesting. If you read the report from the majority, there’s a lot of discussion about crimes but they couldn’t find it themselves to charge one,” a puzzled Collins explained during a Rules Committee meeting. “Again, common sense. Articles, when we think about impeaching a president in particular, for crimes…. This majority has tried so hard to be like Clinton and Nixon and failed so miserably

  1. I guess Mr. Dershowitz has some kind of x-ray vision. My copy of the constitution doesn’t have any thresholds for impeachment listed.

  2. Trump is the only president, who was not impeasched, even when people tried, with strong determination. They came up short, not being sussessful.

  3. Each and every Democrat that pushed and voted for this ILLEGAL and UNCONSTITUTIONAL Impeachment has not only VIOLATED the U. S. Constitution but has VIOLATED Ethics Rules including Abuse of Power as Elected Officials.
    During Clinton Administration when Democrats controlled Congress they passed a law (Unconstitutional violating 4th Amendment) you are guilty by association. Now, under this FARCE Impeachment you are guilty by accusations. Which they tried so hard to do to with Judge Kavanaugh U. S. Supreme Court confirmation and failed miserably but not until they ruined people’s lives over their lies and FALSE accusations.
    With the FAKE, PHONY and ILLEGAL Unconstitutional Impeachment by the Democrats with behind closed door meetings and ZERO Due Process with ZERO evidence including being one sided from the beginning shows the corruption of the Democrats.
    The Democrats made up lies and their own rules to suit the outcome they and they alone wanted.
    That boys and girls is only one thing. And that is FASCISM.

  4. Impeachment of President Trump does not meet intelligence thresholds!
    He is the only one to ever take seriously and do his job! He has come along way to becoming presidential and we couldn’t be prouder! Bravo Sir
    Where is their Accountability????????

  5. Turley and Dershowitz are former liberals who are now competing to make a buck as Trump’s impeachment attorneys.

  6. I keep reading how this impeachment was all wrong. That the democrats have not followed protocol, that there is no evidence of impeachment grade wrong doing, etc. So why is it Nancy can sit on the documents like an old hen? What is she trying to hatch, and why is she able to get away with it? I really feel she was manipulated into agreeing finally to the impeachment. Was she blackmailed? Is she still being blackmailed? None of this makes any sense, but I guess that’s because liberals are so entrenched in it. Very little that liberals do makes much sense to me. They do not seem to be able to distinguish right behavior from wrong behavior. They can’t seem to see where their trippy ideology is leading us, or they simply do not care. They don’t support our military, our police force, or anyone who disagrees with them. However, they do support the murder of infants (come on Nancy, you are no Catholic, you are not even a Christian. Give us a break!). So is there no recourse to this attempted take over by totally dysfunctional people with an alarming social disorder that no one seems to understand is self destruct in action?
    Just wondering.

  7. Hi! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my previous room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this write-up to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!
