Dershowitz eviscerates the Dems’ case tonight. They have not charged an impeachable offense or alleged impeachable conduct. Period. Let’s vote

As usual, there was much hilarity in the responses:
You know this because of your extensive Courtroom experience…….Oh wait.
That one was from a retired Missouri Circuit Court Judge.
…didn’t you want to hear from Hunter Biden and Schiff earlier today?
I’m just trying to keep track—are they important or nah?
He’s kind of shakey at this sycophant thing, so they cut him a little slack.
Here’s what’s changed. The NYT dropped another leak from Bolton’s book tonight. They have to get things wrapped up before anymore facts come out. Drip. Drip. Drip.
No, as a Show Me State resident, I want witnesses. Start with Bolton. Let’s get testimony
And now you know why josh had to quickly get a different job than being a lawyer
Ouch. That one left a mark.
Then let’s bring in Bolton and get the word straight from the horses mouth.
How can you vote when you haven’t heard from any witnesses? Why are you pushing this through? Is it because you are afraid of what else may surface publicly? Because you know it will.
How can abuse of power not be impeachable? It is by definition not proper conduct! And obstruction of Congress is denial of the Congress’s enumerated power to impeach and try impeachments. If that’s not impeachable, nothing is.
We’re Americans. We’re not children and we’re not afraid of the truth. Bring it.
Let loose the witnesses!
Yes, but they’re republican senators…
Dersh is a criminal defense lawyer. 1 of his students who became a constitutional lawyer said he was glad he didn’t have Dersh for constitutional law b/c his arguments are laughable. Explain how Trump was legally able to withhold aid already approved without notifying Congress.
Maybe the self described “constitutional lawyer” needs to ask for his law school tuition back.
The impeachable offense is listed in the articles. Once this bs grandstanding of parading republicans to defend their religious values is over… and the real trial begins… then you’ll have the proof for the impeachment.
But I understand dumb voters don’t research.
Dershowitz treated the Constitution today like a square of toilet paper. He has no conscience and will do anything to give Republicans an out. To Dumb down the Constitution like trump has dumbed down America. This is a direct assault on the Law and the US Constitution.
Yep, a vendetta against Republican attempts to have a trial without witnesses or documents – especially when new facts are coming out every day.
Republicans are delusional if they think acquitting trump w/o witnesses won’t come back & nite them in the a$$.
Obstruction is an impeachable offense, Senator. I know you’re focused on bootlicking, but have a bit of objective decency. Once again, feel free to come to KC and face your constituents!
Is it just me or does-
Trump’s attorneys sounds like they are doing an oral book report on a book they never read. Hours of nothing.
As my elected representative I urge you to stop being a sycophant and use that fancy Yale Law degree to think seriously about the danger this president poses to us all and our constitutional republic. You must vote to hear witnesses and to remove him from office.
Pro tip: cheating to win an election is always impeachable
Yeah Hunter Biden withheld military aide. He also told his personal attorney and the AG to go find dirt on his political opponents.
Are you really a constitutional lawyer? Did you get your degree in a gumball machine?
So I’m other words you failed logic and critical thinking in 8th grade.
“eviscerates”? Now that’s certainly creative. Seems more like he said no other ‘constitutional’ attorney agrees with me but that’s my opinion. Period. Let’s call witnesses.
Dershowitz is a prima facia case of “opinions money can buy”.
“The subjects of its jurisdiction are those offenses which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or, in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust.“ I’ll take Alexander Hamilton‘s version over Dershowitz’s.
Dersh said himself that his opinion on this does not match the consensus of nearly all constitutional scholars. He is the outlier here.
Wait… aren’t you the one that said human trafficking is the result of the American sexual revolution in the 1960s? And ripping kids from their parents was a matter of upholding law and order?
Well, now that you ask, yes.
Why are you attempting to GASLIGHT Americans?
Wow Hawley. Now I know just where you stand. Against Justice, against the will of the People, hearing the witnesses & viewing documentation to complete the trial with full information. Missouri voting is easier everyday. Show your colors MO politicians. We’re watching.
And every constitutional scholar says Dershowitz is totally wrong. If you can find even one reputable person to agree with him, you might have a case, but the only person who used to agree with him wrote an op-ed today about why offenses were impeachable.
Whoa there, Joshy. Captain Underpants spoke in contradictions and has even less credibility than Ken Starr. But I can see you’re in a hurry to acquit before Bolton has a chance to testify. He’s a first hand witness. Isn’t that what you say is missing?
Feeling the rush to vote before Parnas drops another 2 -3 videos?
He didn’t eviscerate anything.
It was so unwatchable and nonsensical I had to turn it off.
Did you have to use your fidget spinner to make it through that mess?
Dershowitz has a pretty obscure take on the matter. Seems like you maybe should call other Constitutional scholars since most say his arguments is utter BS. But you already know that, don’t you. So tired of GOP dishonesty.
I am so disappointed in you. I look forward to supporting whoever runs against you. I just wish I could vote against you sooner. You have shown time and again that you have no character. Such a disgrace.
The president’s defense is still just lies and misdirection, just like his life.
And on and on…
