After months of sham hearings, partisan witnesses, and still no evidence President Donald Trump did anything wrong on his July phone call with the Ukrainian president, the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives will vote on impeachment this week.
The House will officially vote on articles of impeachment against Trump on Wednesday (Dec. 18).
After dropping two of the original charges they levied against the president, House Democrats have finally decided they will vote to charge Trump with obstruction of Congress and abuse of power.
While both articles hardly have a leg to stand on, Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz believes the second article has already been thrown out the door thanks to action taken by the Supreme Court last week.
During an appearance with Fox News host Sean Hannity, Dershowitz referenced the Supreme Court’s Friday announcement that it would take up Trump’s appeals of three separate cases involving subpoenas for his financial records.
One case is from Manhattan, New York’s district attorney and two others from Democrat-controlled House committees.
“Look, the most important development happened today,” Dershowitz said. “The Supreme Court of the United States absolutely pulled the rug out of part two of the impeachment referral by granting certiorari, by granting review in a case where Trump challenged a congressional subpoena.”
Democrats second article of impeachment — alleged “obstruction of Congress” — charged that Trump unlawfully “directed the unprecedented, categorical, and indiscriminate defiance of subpoenas issued by the House of Representatives.”
Dershowitz noted that the mere fact the Supreme Court agreed to review Trump’s challenges against the subpoenas makes it clear it is not at all unlawful, but rather standard practice, for such disputes between branches of government to be handled in the courts.
In other words, Dershowitz says the Supreme Court taking on the case appears to show that Trump has the legal right to refuse congressional subpoenas.
But beyond that, this is another example proving Democrats have no case.
They have accused Trump of just about everything imaginable, and after months of wasting taxpayer dollars to hold impeachment hearings, they still can’t prove the president did anything wrong.
And Republicans have already revealed exactly what’s going to happen when the impeachment trial moves into the Senate in January.
Things are going so badly for Democrats that the liberal lawyer leading the impeachment hearings has been accused of demanding his own illegal quid pro quo.
