Retired Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz just published a book called The Case Against Impeaching Trump.
Dershowitz continued to defend his premise, even as the president’s former campaign manager and personal attorney both became felons within minutes of each other on Tuesday.
On Wednesday, Dershowitz appeared on Fox & Friends to maintain that Trump is not in any legal jeopardy.
“The death knell that they’ve been sounding on some other cable television is a bit exaggerated,” Dershowitz said. “There are many, many steps that need to be taken before the president is in legal jeopardy.”
Dershowitz gave his opinion that if Trump paid-off accusers with his own money and didn’t report it, it’s “not a crime.”
“The election laws are a morass of misdemeanors, felonies, crimes, non-crimes with exceptions,” he said.
Dershowitz then lashed out at Michael Cohen, saying “the only evidence that the president has done anything wrong comes from a man who is admitted to be a liar.” (Michael Cohen taped conversations with the president, which would appear to solve this perceived problem.)
“Every campaign has violated some technical campaign law,” he said.
‘Malignant’ GOP voters will keep backing ‘dumber and angrier’ candidates no matter what happens in November: Conservative
Even if the Republican Party suffers crippling losses in November's election, that won't solve the problem of the "malignant Republican voter."
President Donald Trump's conservative opponents have been publicly debating whether the GOP deserves to survive, but The Week columnist Damon Linker says reducing the party to cinders and ash won't root out the party's rotten core.
"The head of the party is a corrupt and malicious imbecile," Linker wrote. "Republicans in Congress are a mix of Trump enablers, obstructionist-demagogues out to maximize the wealth of their donors, know-nothing conspiracist loons, and a few reformers experimenting with the most politically palatable way to blend nationalism with socialism. All of them are primarily motivated by the drive toward self-promotion within the right-wing media complex. And when we move further down the Republican hierarchy to the state and local level, things only get worse."
‘Survival of organized human society’ at risk: New campaign rallies progressives to vote Trump out
"As progressives and leftists, we are not going to minimize our disagreements with Joe Biden. But we're also clear-eyed about where things stand. We have a moral responsibility to defeat Trump."
With the goal of boosting progressive voter turnout in swing states that could play a decisive role in November, advocacy group RootsAction.org on Wednesday launched a grassroots campaign aiming to prevent another disastrous four years of President Donald Trump's "war on truth, on decency, on our planet, and on working people."
Organizers of the new "Vote Trump Out" initiative argue that while progressives have major substantive differences with Joe Biden on a number of key issues, "supporting the Democratic nominee in swing states is the only means we have to defeat Trump."
Another government watchdog resigns — months after Trump fired the old one: report
On Wednesday, The Washington Post reported that the State Department inspector general is resigning — just four months after Trump brought him on to replace the one he previously fired.
"Stephen Akard’s departure, which will be effective Friday, was announced to staff by his deputy, Diana R. Shaw, who told colleagues she would temporarily become the acting inspector general in his stead," reported John Hudson.
