In 1998, when the Senate held an impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton, Alan Dershowitz argued that “if you have somebody who completely corrupts the office of president and who abuses trust and who poses great danger to our liberty, you don’t need a technical crime” to impeach. coque iphone Now that he’s part of President Trump’s defense team, he argues that “without a crime, there can be no impeachment.” Anderson Cooper asked Dershowitz about the apparent discrepancy between those views on CNN Monday night.
Dershowitz said he still believes you don’t need a “technical crime,” just “criminal like behavior akin to bribery and treason.” He said his argument is consistent, and when Cooper pointed out it isn’t, he insisted he “wasn’t wrong” in 1998, he just has “a more sophisticated basis for my argument now.” Cooper wasn’t persuaded by Dershowitz’s logic and CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin didn’t agree with his legal argument that abuse of power and obstruction of Congress aren’t impeachable offenses.
“What is clear is that Alan was right in coque iphone 6 miroir integre 1998 and he’s wrong now,” Toobin coque asse huawei p20 lite said. “The idea that you can only impeach a president for criminal or criminal like behavior is absurd on its face.” Dershowitz disagreed and insisted again he hasn’t changed his views. “I wasn’t wrong, I’m just coque iphone 8 plus priceminister far more correct now than I was then,” he said. coque iphone “And I think your viewers are entitled to hear my argument without two bullies jumping on everything I say.”
Cooper also spoke with coque iphone 6 plus luxewood Dershowitz’s former Harvard Law colleague Lawrence Tribe, who said Dershowitz is clearly wrong and, sadly, appears to be “selling out, I don’t think for money but just for attention.” He coque iphone 6 apple blanc “was a great teacher,” Tribe added and coque iphone 5s motif aztèque “he’s perfectly entitled to defend the president, although I don’t like that he pretends he’s defending the Constitution instead of the president.

Over the weekend, House impeachment managers laid out their case that President Trump was “the Framers’ worst nightmare” and should be removed from office for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, Stephen Colbert said on Monday’s Late Show. “In response, the president’s lawyers say that abuse of power is not impeachable. Yes it is! It’s the most powerful job in the world! That’s why coque iphone 6 new era abuse of power is the thing a president is not supposed to do.”
“With his presidency on the line, Trump is turning to his favorite legal scholar: television,” Colbert said. Among the TV lawyers Trump hired is Alan Dershowitz, whose list of past clients is . notable. Simpson but Jared, just in case, gas up the Bronco.” coque iphone 5 pretty little liars Dershowitz is going on TV arguing Trump’s technically it wasn’t a crime impeachment defense, and Colbert coque iphone x hermes played his exact opposite argument in Bill Clinton’s impeachment, plus a doozy of a Dershowtiz quote from Richard Nixon’s impeachment.
Trump’s “all star defense team” does include Dershowitz, who’s past clients also include Claus von Blow and Harvey Weinstein, “so he definitely has a type,” Jimmy Kimmel deadpanned at Kimmel Live. But “Trump summoned all the ghosts of impeachments past, including Kenneth Starr, who led the case coque iphone 5s kendji girac against Clinton and was attacked for it by a number of high profile people,” including Trump.
“Rudy Giuliani will not be on the Trump coque huawei p20 pri legal team, but he claims he wants to testify,” though “Senate Republicans don’t want any witnesses, and they’re limiting press access,” Kimmel said. “These guys really are something: They don’t want witnesses, they don’t want new evidence, they don’t want reporting, and they don’t want people watching it’s almost like they have something to hide. But what could that be The phone call was ‘perfect.'”
Trump is “desperately trying to soothe his ego and pretend he doesn’t know the key players in the scandal,” but he “knows that ultimately, in the eyes of history, it won’t matter whether Republicans successfully rig his impeachment trial to let him off the hook,” Late Night’s Seth Meyers argued. coque iphone “No matter what, he will be only the third president in history to face such a trial, and it follows him forever, especially as coque dragon ball huawei p20 more damning evidence emerges.” Watch below.
