  1. What a joke….as if the Constitution was only written so that hyper-partisan trolls with legal degrees would be the only people that can "interpret" what "high crimes and misdemeanors" are! The whole root of US chaos and decline is the WHACKED way that votes are counted and the whole corruption of money in the electoral process. The idiotic EC and the US Senate gives skewed voting power to the rural, less populated, and whiter States. This is just a fact! IOW…in a normal country, having a 'one person – one vote' system…Klowns like WarCrimes-Bush and Klepto-Trump would NEVER have been elected!

  2. Alan Dershowitz plans to "defend" Donald Trump (..? )……I admire Dershowitz's wisdom, sagacity, and capacity for logic …..

    …" The Irrationality of a thing is no argument against its existence, rather a condition of it…"
    ( F. Nietzsche )

  3. You can tell Dershowitz is full of crap by how he keeps insisting that he is a "Liberal Democrat" yet he is defending Trump. Also by Dershowitz reasoning the founders wanted the president to effectively be a king, despite the fact that the originally wanted the President to be quite weak exactly because they were wary of executive power.

  4. Typical talk of the left. You can’t conduct a civil or intelligent conversation, so it’s reduced to name calling and caricatures. See below.

  5. Don't rock the boat??? When did we become a lawless nation? Clinton was impeached for absolutely nothing!! The framers were alive in 1700's. My god. Treason? How about inviting Russians "if you're listening" to hack our election. Live on television. Are you kidding me?

  6. Hey Conservatives, MAGA-Dumbfucks and Reichwingers… "This Jew has just replaced you! This Jew has just replaced you! This Jew has just replaced you! This Jew has just replaced you!" Hahahhahahahhaaa… sad little right-wingers with their NAZI chants! Hahahahahahhaaa…

  7. "Abuse of power or abuse of authority, in the form of "malfeasance in office" or "official misconduct", is the commission of an unlawful act, done in an official capacity, which affects the performance of official duties. Malfeasance in office is often grounds for a for cause removal of an elected official by statute or recall election. Officials who utilize abuse of power are often those who exploit the ability to use corruption in their advantage."
    – wikipedia
    And the GAO stated, "Faithful execution of the law does not permit the president to substitute his own policy priorities for those that Congress has enacted. OMB withheld funds for a policy reason, which is not permitted under the Impoundment Control Act (ICA).  The withholding was not a programmatic delay.  Therefore, we conclude that OMB violated the ICA."
    So Dershowitz's claim doesn't hold water.

  8. As you speak, Lopez obrador, disregarding an agreement between USA and México has allowed more migrant caravans from central America, but the worst is the fact that 5 suicide Iranians have been spotted in the Mexicali/ Calexico border, please alert your fellow Americans as these terrorists have in mind embassies and anything america

  9. ALAN DERSHOWITZ IS A PERVERT WHO PARTIED WITH EPSTEIN AND WENT TO HIS ISLAND AND SCREWED UNDERAGE GIRLS. NO WONDER TRUMP LIKES HIM

  10. Going through the comments, it's very obvious Trump haters aren't interested in contents of Dershowitz's argument. The hysteria is way more insane than that of a diabolical cult. Bunch of people with mental health issues. All emotion, no reason.

  11. He states that he is not in a lawyer-client relationship in the Trump impeachment case, so if he is not in a lawyer-client relationship, is he then just an expert witness. If so doesn't it open the door for the democrats to call witnesses, at the very least to have their own constitutional expert witness to give an alternative view as to the constitutionality of abuse of power as an impeachable offense? By him stating he really isn't part of the Trump lawyer team,, he may have open the door for the democrats team to call witnesses.

  12. High crimes and misdemeanors are violations of the criminal code, what law did Donald Trump violate… that's right he didn't break the law, he is your president and it will stay that way until 2024.

  13. Out of all the Lawyer Available Trump can only get Lawyer who defend Pedophiles, and are possible pedophiles themselves?
    Alan Dershowitz: Sure I Got a Massage at Jeffrey Epstein’s Mansion, but I Kept My Underwear On? Good on him for keeping his underwear on!!! What a stand up guy.

  14. It appears Alan dershowitz is the only sane Democrat out there he's certainly the only one who understands the Constitution

  15. I hope this "attorney " reads all these comments and see we are not buying this Bull 💩!! It's an insult to think we are stupid as the public. Just disgusting behavior. You're already up in age, you better hope there isn't a judgment waiting for you when you die. Soulless people running this country!!

  16. OMG – Abuse of power by Donald Trump is not impeacheable? Seriously? or abuse of power by any President? No matter the case may be, we are now entering an entirely new era or period in our American history that is dangerous and detrimental to our democracy.

  17. In order to make this argument Dershowitz should insist that the tu Quoque be applied to any Senate trial for abuse of power allowing President Trump to submit evidence of abuse of power by Democrats videnced by the 5 IG reports, the Mueller investigation and John Durham's investigation. Allied prosecutors at the Nuremberg trials lost interest in prosecuting Nazi admirals for unrestricted submarine warfare after their defense attorneys submitted a letter from Admiral Chester Nimitz admitting that Allied forces used unrestricted submarine warfare in the Pacific war.

  18. Dershowitz clearly has a semantic problem. If bribery isn't an abuse of power, what is? Besides, Trump is also guilty of extortion, which IS a crime.

  19. Saying do me a favor though ,, to a foreign government in order to release the money that Congress approved is a bribe, to me

  20. So the Framers of the Constitution wanting a Democratic society. Write the Constitution with the notion they want it set up that we dont end up with King ruling or dictator. SO I am no expert, but he is honestly saying a President can manipulate the election or in essence do whatever he wants as long as it does not rise to a crime like treason or bribery. That is absurdity. POTUS has 2 term limit, but this would set precedent that in theory if you get elected then if you are smart enough to rig election without committing a crime then LITERALLY there is no remedy and you win 2nd term.

  21. Dirtshowism, I called BIG bull sh*t. We have a man in the White House Trump that has already given Russia first-hand information which can be used against America. Dirt butt .. he is money talking.

  22. This man should be indicted lying boldface. He's a lying lawyer, making up fantasy and helping Putin takeover. No conscience.

  23. Well that is one of the most gigantic ego,s I,ve witnessed for a long time. Prof is pitching himself as representing the founding fathers? Appearing for one day only ( stage to himself?) not getting messy with what trump has done or not. Well thank you Prof for arguing Presidents are Lawless?

  24. As a former Republican voter I add the Republican party is dead in my eyes and I will vote so from here on out! So is there another conservative movement coming because that's going to be their best chance getting my vote ever again?

  25. There is no crime or impeachable offense !!

    The Democrats are traitors to the American people.
    All these dimwit Trump haters take virtually everything out of context.
    Oh, and there's very few people in America watching MSNBC or CNN !!
    Thank goodness.

  26. abuse of power is treason. If the president misuses his office he commits treason – he swore an oath to uphold the office when he doesn't do that and he commits crimes he commits treason

  27. Alan Dershowitz – is not offering any defense – his practice is APPELLATE – appeals….
    remember REPEAL AND REPLACE AND DID NEITHER……SMOKE AND MIRRORS SO YOU DO NOT SEE THE TRUTH……

  28. it sounds to me thier not standing by the constitution, why even have a constitution if your not standing by it. looks like their going to let trump skate thru this trail what a bunch of criminals.

  29. I just cannot understand why ARI wasn’t far more confrontational and calling out Dershowitz on this total gaslighting that he’s a Democrat or non-partisan. It’s a F’ing lie and we all know it yet there’s this collective resignation & complicity of US media to aid Dershowitz in this total lie.

  30. Boo. Nothing about Alan Dershowitz- Mr Last 4 years on Fox defending & praising every vile thing Trump does whole viciously attacking & lying about Democrats. The Gaslighting LIES that Dershowitz is anything BUT a full blown Trump Cult Member has to STOP by the US Media- or at very least they need to STOP being complicit in letting Dershowitz get away with this big lie.

  31. So, he is doing it as a lawyer, not in representation of anybody, so therefore he IS a witness, and therefore Democrats should get a witness, too.

  32. MSNBC mouthpiece and manipulator. Democrat biased corporate media trying to influence the public to support the Democrat agenda.

  33. Woooh! Apparently there are other people than the president who are genius at lying to themselves. "I'm on the presidents legal team, but arguing for the Constitution." Hahahahaha! Since when was the the Constitution on trial? When did trials get third party attorneys? They are called WITNESSES! Dude. This is pathetic.

  34. How our pass sometimes catch-up with us in an unexpected moment, Dershowitz is on tape during Clinton impeachment to be saying the very opposite

  35. Dershowitz's views on constitutional law is exactly the opposite today than it was during the Clinton impeachment. Was he wrong then or is he wrong now. Either way it shows his grasp of the law is questionable and any input he has regarding these proceedings must be regarded as dubious at best.

  36. Just a narcissist egotistical jerk like the Pres. Big headed. Always wants to hear himself. He wants to get into the history"" books.

  37. …In August 1998, Dershowitz argued that a president does NOT have to commit a "technical crime" in order for it to constitute impeachable conduct.

    In January 2020, Dershowitz argues that a president DOES have to commit a "technical crime" in order for it to constitute impeachable conduct.

    WE SEE WHAT YOU DID!!!

  38. THE MOST CORRUPT MAN ON TE USA PRESIDENCY!!! GET FOR HE'S DEFENSE! THE MOST CORRUPT LAYERS USA KNOW!!! BINNING WIT LAYER ON JEFFREY EPSTEIN!! AS THE REST ARE ! KNOWN FOR THE SAME KIND!!! LOWERS ON DEFENSE ON THE IMPOSIBLE!!! THE INDEFENSABLE!! ON THE MOST CORRUPT! AND THOSE OM THE ROT PIT!! AN CRIMINAL MOST REPUGNANT KNOW BEHAVIOR ON AMERICA!

  39. So sick of stupid and irrelevant comments about people's supposed sexual behavior. Try reading a book on constitutional law.
