"A brilliant lawyer...A new and very important book. I would encourage all people...to read!"—President Donald J. Trump

“Absolutely amazing…. If you care about justice...you’re going to want to read this book.”—Sean Hannity

“Maybe the question isn’t what happened to Alan Dershowitz. Maybe it’s what happened to everyone else.”—Politico

Alan Dershowitz has been called “one of the most prominent and consistent defenders of civil liberties in America” by Politico and “the nation’s most peripatetic civil liberties lawyer and one of its most distinguished defenders of individual rights” by Newsweek. Yet he has come under partisan fire for applying those same principles to Donald Trump during the course of his many appearances in national media outlets as an expert resource on civil and constitutional law.

The Case Against Impeaching Trump seeks to reorient the debate over impeachment to the same standard that Dershowitz has continued to uphold for decades: the law of the United States of America, as established by the Constitution. In the author’s own words:

“In the fervor to impeach President Trump, his political enemies have ignored the text of the Constitution. As a civil libertarian who voted against Trump, I remind those who would impeach him not to run roughshod over a document that has protected us all for two and a quarter centuries. In this case against impeachment, I make arguments similar to those I made against the impeachment of President Bill Clinton (and that I would be making had Hillary Clinton been elected and Republicans were seeking to impeach her). Impeachment and removal of a president are not entirely political decisions by Congress. Every member takes an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution sets out specific substantive criteria that MUST be met.

I am thrilled to contribute to this important debate and especially that my book will be so quickly available to readers so they can make up their own minds.”

The author argues that those who wanted Trump impeached were only doing so because they did not like his politics.

In addition, Article II of the Comstitution grants the head of the executive power the right to fire anyone for any or no reason; to pardon anyone for any or no reason; and to investigate or not to investigate, or to charge or not to charge anyone for any or no reason.

Furthermore, "corruption," "obstruction of justice," "conspiracy" and "collusion" are too vague. If he is to be impeached, there must be a clear violation of a legal statute.

Back when he was standing up for Bill Clinton, he said no technical crime was needed; abuse of trust or corrupting the office would be sufficient. Now, he has reversed his position: a crime must have been committed and "abuse" and "obstruction of justice" are too vague to impeach. When asked about the discrepancy, he responds that he was correct then, but that now, he's "even more correct." Wow!!!

Plus (yes, there's more!) impeaching Trump would be "unconstitutional" (!!!)

So, he really covers Trump's enormous behind. He claims to be a liberal Democrat who voted for Hillary.
Well, the Dems sure are growing an odd crop of liberals nowadays! No wonder they're so pathetic when it comes to being an opposition party!

Should Orange Mao win another term, and Bill Barr resign, just imagine this dialogue:

Trump: "Jump!" Dershowitz: "How high, mein fuhrer?

If you were thinking of reading this piece of tripe, I've read it for you. You're welcome.

Now go and read a biography of Lincoln or FDR, genuine presidents who made America great.

They were not incompetent, ignorant, delusional sociopaths play acting at president while attacking the country's democratic institutions and turning it into an international laughingstock.
