Linkedin Share

A member of Alan Dershowitz’s own family told him to change his last name because he had the audacity to work with President Trump’s legal team. That’s how ridiculously political everything has become these days.

Whoever that family member was, he or she won’t be happy to hear what Dershowitz just said about former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s new book, which apparently says Trump intentionally withheld aid to Ukraine. From The Hill:

Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz on Monday said that former national security adviser John Bolton’s reported account of President Trump tying Ukraine military aid to investigations into Democrats would not constitute an impeachable offense.

“If any president had done what the [New York] Times reported about the content of the Bolton manuscript, that would not constitute an impeachable offense,” Dershowitz said during lengthy remarks from the Senate floor Monday night.

Dershowitz noted, “Let me repeat: Nothing in the Bolton revelations, even if true, would rise to the level of an abuse of power or an impeachable offense. That is clear from the history. That Is clear from the language of the Constitution.

He added, “You cannot turn conduct that is not impeachable into impeachable conduct simply by using words like ‘quid pro quo’ and ‘personal benefit.’
