    Arrow The Supreme Court could intervene in attempt to remove Trump from office, Dershowitz


    The Supreme Court could intervene in attempt to remove Trump from office, Dershowitz says

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/sup...ice-dershowitz

    President Trump may succeed if he follows through on his attempt to take an impeachment attempt to the Supreme Court, Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz said on Friday.

    "Our non-lawyer president may be closer to the truth than his lawyer critics," Dershowitz wrote in an op-ed published in The Hill.

    Dershowitz, a Fox News contributor, was referring to responses to the president's tweet that he would take the issue to the nation's highest court.

    "I DID NOTHING WRONG. If the partisan Dems ever tried to impeach, I would first head to the U.S. Supreme Court," Trump said in April.

    Dershowitz, in his Friday op-ed, pointed to previous Supreme Court justices who indicated that the Supreme Court should intervene under certain circumstances.

    “Finally, as applied to the special case of the President, the majority argument merely points out that, were the Senate to convict the President without any kind of trial, a Constitutional crisis might well result," former Supreme Court Justice Byron White said.

    "It hardly follows that the Court ought to refrain from upholding the Constitution in all impeachment cases. Nor does it follow that, in cases of presidential impeachment, the Justices ought to abandon their constitutional responsibility because the Senate has precipitated a crisis."

    Dershowitz also knocked people for criticizing Trump's willingness to go to raise the prospect of a Supreme Court challenge.

    "No one should criticize President Trump for raising the possibility of Supreme Court review, especially following Bush v. Gore, the case that ended the 2000 election," he said. "Many of the same academics ridiculed the notion that the justices would enter the political thicket of vote-counting."

    Dershowitz's op-ed came as media outlets amplified questions surrounding potential impeachment. While some in Congress supported that move, many didn't.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. -- who presides over the chamber responsible for impeachment -- has repeatedly pushed back on impeachment and, on Thursday, argued it could ultimately prevent an effective prosecution against the president.

    Many have speculated that impeachment could spell trouble for Democrats in 2020, but some progressives, like Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., have argued that certain issues transcended politics.

    Meanwhile, congressional Democrats continued pressing the administration for more information surrounding the Russia investigation -- coming up against the Trump administration's refusal to comply with congressional subpoenas

    If we survive that long. They say the truth eventually comes out in history books, but the way history is perverted inn schools these days I'm not so sure that's true.

    Nancy Pelosi seems to think it's better to leave Trump with all the scandals hanging, and then let him be indicted after the next election. Mueller's report makes it clear that he wasn't indicted because presidents can't be indicted in office, but he listed at least three attempts by Trump to obstruct the investigation, any one of which would put anyone else in jail.

    Unless Trump turns it around in the six swing states he won last time, and in which he's down by significant numbers, he will be "anyone else" in 2021.

    That's the risk she's playing. Trump is great at getting out of trouble. Maybe one more time. But it has to keep him up at night.

    That's what Trump thought just before she suckered him into taking all the blame for shutting down the government. It was cool watching Chuck Shumer smile as he watched Peolosi give Trump a little slack and then reel him in.

    Donald Trump is by far the most corrupt and incompetent president in US history . None of the previous presidents comes even remotely close . He is also a blithering idiot whose mind is apparently deteriorating into utter senility in front of the American public .
    Trump is a terrible human being and an atrocious president who is initiating social and economic policies which will be absolutely catastrophic for America and which are also endangering the entire planet . He has zero qualifications for the most difficult and crucial job in work history and was fraudulently imposed on this country die to the continued existence of our long obsolete electoral college, blatant interference by Russia in the 2016 election , and equally blatant gerrymandering and suppression of minority votes by the criminal Republican, actually Repugnican party .
    Trump is a ruthless demagogue who tells people what they want to hear and has absolutely no core principles of his own other than "how can I make myself as rich and powerful as possible ". He has no decency, no morals, no ethics, no integrity , no self discipline and control over either his mouth or his libido .
    Trump lacks the brains, knowledge , education , experience ,technical skill , sound judgment , discipline and hard work needed to be a good president . He totally clueless as to what any president needs to know and be able to do .
    This is only the tip of the iceberg of all the many reasons why Trump should be impeached and removed from office . As soon as possible ! The future of America is in serious jeopardy .
