Alan Dershowitz is a Democrat, but the esteemed law professor does not agree with his party when it comes to impeaching Trump.
In fact, he doesn’t even think it’s constitutional the way the Democrats are handling it.
He appeared on Mark Levin’s show on Sunday night and systematically took apart the Democrats’ argument.
From FOX News:
Alan Dershowitz: Some Democrats channeling Soviet minister’s ‘Show me the man, I’ll show you the crime’ maxim
Some Democrats pursuing the impeachment of President Trump are trying their hardest to pin an impeachable crime on the commander in chief, according to law professor Alan Dershowitz.
“[I]t can’t operate when you’re the president of the United States and you’re conditioning or withholding money in order to make sure that a country isn’t corrupt and you’re asking them to investigate [something],” he said.
“That just doesn’t fit any definition of bribery — common law definition of bribery, statutory definition of bribery — however you define the constitutional word ‘bribery.’ It just doesn’t fit,” he said…
“What they’re trying to do is what the KGB under Lavrentiy Beria said to Stalin, the dictator — I’m not comparing our country to the Soviet Union — I just want to make sure it never becomes anything like that,” he said.
Beria, once the Soviet deputy premier and interior minister, famously would reassure Stalin, “Show me the man and I’ll find you the crime.”
“And that’s what some of the Democrats are doing,” Dershowitz claimed. “They have Trump in their sights. They want to figure out a way of impeaching him and they’re searching for a crime.”

Dershowitz is right and the Democrats are wrong.
They’re going to pay a political price for it.
