Harvard Law Prof.: Delaying Impeachment Trial Is highly Unconstitutional

Published

on

“It would do violence to the rule of Constitutional law that is supposed to serve all Americans”

Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz called out Nancy Pelosi’s attempt to delay President Trump’s Senate trial on impeachment as “unconstitutional” Thursday, saying that it is ‘hard to imagine more of a denial of basic due process’.

in an op-ed for Newsmax, Dershowitz argued that it is unconstitutional to withhold the trial “until the Senate agreed to change its rules, or presumably until a new election put many more Democrats in the Senate.”

“It is difficult to imagine anything more unconstitutional, more violative of the intention of the Framers, more of a denial of basic due process and civil liberties, more unfair to the president and more likely to increase the current divisiveness among the American people,” he argued.

“Put bluntly, it is hard to imagine a worse idea put forward by good people” he added.

“An impeached president has a right to be tried and acquitted by the Senate,” Dershowitz, who identifies as a liberal democrat, further wrote.

“Denying him and the American people that fundamental right might serve the temporary interests of the Democratic party, and academics who support it, but would do violence to the rule of Constitutional law that is supposed to serve all Americans, regardless of party or ideology.” he asserted.

Trump slammed the effort to delay the trial:

Pelosi and the Democrats are planning to delay and drag the impeachment process in yet another underhanded stunt. They may use a delay to effectively discredit Trump’s Presidency by calling him ‘the impeached President’.

Following the impeachment vote, Pelosi said she would withhold the articles of impeachment until the Senate makes rules that she determines will be “fair” to the prosecution.

Democrats may also use a delay to press forward with the Mueller grand jury case, a deposition by former White House counsel Don McGahn, as well as the effort to access Trump’s financial and tax records.

For at least the third time, Joe Biden has claimed that millions of Americans have died from the coronavirus.

During speech honoring Ruth Bader Ginsburg Sunday, Biden blamed President Trump for the spread of the virus and stated “It’s estimated that 200 million people have died—probably by the time I—finish this talk.”

Then literally seconds after making the wildly inaccurate statement, Biden said that six million people have been infected.

If 200 million people had died of the virus, it would equate to around two-thirds of the country.

This is going beyond mere gaffe territory now, as Biden has made similar climbs on multiple occasions.

In May he claimed that the virus had cost the “Lives of millions of people, millions of people”:

One month later in June, Biden said that 120 million Americans had died:

President Trump commented “That’s a serious error. That is not a permissible type of error. There is something going on.”

“It’s wonderful to say I feel sorry or that’s too bad, because I do, except we are talking about the presidency of the United States, and it is just not acceptable,” Trump added.

“It’s what happens when you realise your internal poll numbers are through the floor”

Almost four months after the worst rioting and looting in history took hold in practically every major city in the US, the majority of which are run by Democrats, Nancy Pelosi finally said something about it.

“We support peaceful demonstrations. We participate in them. They are part of the essence of our democracy. That does not include looting, starting fires, or rioting,” Pelosi said Thursday, adding “They should be prosecuted. That is lawlessness.”

Note, that Pelosi did not mention BLM or Antifa, or name any group responsible for the destruction.

Many expressed the same theory about why Pelosi suddenly decided to address the matter:

Indeed, a series of new polls reveals that the majority of Americans believe there is a war being waged against police officers, and that support for the ‘black lives matter’ movement has dropped even further, with many more now seeing little distinction between the movement’s ‘protests’ and violent riots.

Senator Kennedy: ‘There Are Times When I think Pelosi Has Eaten Tide Pods’

Says Speaker is “bone deep down to the marrow foolish”

GOP Senator John Kennedy used a startling cultural reference to portray his belief that believes Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is crazy, saying that he often thinks she has ‘is one of those people who tried Tide Pods’ laundry detergent.

Appearing with Sean Hannity, Kennedy was addressing Pelosi’s obsession with the $3.4 trillion coronavirus bill.

“Sean, with respect, there are times, particularly recently, when I think Speaker Pelosi is one of those people who tried Tide pods,” Kennedy hilariously stated.

“I want you to think about what she proposed today, this is what the speaker is threatening to do,” he continued, adding “She is threatening to keep the House Democrats in session and prevent them from going home and running for reelection unless the Senate Republicans agree to the speaker’s $3.4 trillion coronavirus bill.”

“On the one hand we can vote for Pelosi’s $3.4 trillion bill or we can agree to allow her to put the House Democratic majority into jeopardy. That’s just bone deep down to the marrow foolish,” Kennedy urged.

Kennedy further emphasised that Nothing is going to get done while the Democrats refuse to back down over something that is never going to come to fruition.

“Senator Schumer and Speaker Pelosi aren’t going to agree to anything until we agree to spend a trillion dollars bailing out New York and California and that’s not going to happen in your or my natural life,” Kennedy added.

Kennedy’s assessment of Pelosi’s sanity comes on the heels of Mad Money Host Jim Cramer calling Pelosi “crazy Nanncy” right to her face, before instantly apologising:
