Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz claimed Wednesday on Fox’s “America’s Newsroom” that he does not think impeachment of President Donald J. Trump is possible, barring any new bombshell revelations.
“[Impeachment] is not going to happen,” Dershowitz said. “The President is not going to be impeached unless massive new information comes out.”
Trump said Wednesday in an Oval Office press conference that he was not worried about impeachment, noting that he believed Americans would revolt if he were removed from office.
“I don’t think we’re in impeachment land and I don’t think presidents ought to be suggesting any kind of non-legal response to impeachment,” Dershowitz continued. “If he were to be impeached and removed lawfully, which I don’t think is possible, the rule of law would apply and people would have to accept the result.”
Dershowitz was discussing the everlasting Russian “collusion” probe levied against the President by Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III with Fox’s Bill Hemmer. The pair talked impeachment in light of the sentencing of Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen for tax evasion, campaign finance violations and lying to Congress.
“I suspect the special counsel report will include lots and lots of sins, based on political and based on circumstantial evidence, but I don’t think he will come up with an impeachable offense,” Dershowitz said. “Remember the Constitution requires treason, bribery, other high crimes and misdemeanors.”
Trump has continually blasted Mueller for what he calls “presidential harassment,” but has taken no steps towards firing the special counsel.
Time for the Witch Hunt to END!” Trump Tweeted last week, along with a quote from Fox’s Geraldo Rivera, who said that there is no “smoking gun” that points to “collusion.”
“This is collusion illusion, there is no smoking gun here. At this late date, after all that we have gone through, after millions have been spent, we have no Russian Collusion. There is nothing impeachable here.” @GeraldoRivera Time for the Witch Hunt to END!

Chuck Schumer Threatens Supreme Court Justices: “You Will Pay the Price”
Chuck Schumer outright threatened two Supreme Court Justices when speaking at a pro-abortion event on Wednesday, using vengeful and vindictive language when discussing recent pro-life court case rulings reached by the court.
“I want to tell you, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh…. You have unleashed the whirlwind, and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
Such rhetoric might be expected in one of Kim Jong Un’s regular missive of threats against the United States. But it’s shocking to hear a sitting Senate Majority Leader slam nonpartisan Supreme Court Justices in such a bold fashion, totally disregarding the court’s traditional independence from everyday politics.
The rally by a pro-abortion group was being held in advance of an expected court ruling on a Louisiana abortion law. The law requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at state hospitals.
Republican legislators slammed Schumer for his irresponsible and threatening rhetoric at the abortion rally after footage of his language was seen on Twitter.
Did Senate Democrat leader Schumer just threaten two conservative justices? Where is the media?

Schumer may have been alluding to potential Democratic plans to impeach Kavanaugh, and possibly even Gorsuch, removing them from the Supreme Court. The Court’s now conservative majority has placed a major stumbling block in the way of the Left’s preferred strategy of seizing power through judicial activism.
Schumer’s unprecedented language, especially coming from a senior party official who should remain level-headed, demonstrates the Democratic Party’s willing to cast aside all formal norms of federal politics and government. They’re willing to do whatever it takes in order to get their way.
