Dershowitz: ‘The President is Not Going to Be Impeached’

Published

on

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.”

Married Lincoln Project Co-Founder John Weaver Accused of Grooming Young Men, Offering Jobs for Sex

Well this isn’t a good look.

Published

John Weaver, political consultant and co-founder of The Lincoln Project, has been accused of being a sexual predator who targeted young men.

Conservative author and political commentator Ryan Girdusky piqued curiosity and set off widespread speculation after tweeting late Saturday afternoon that “one of the founding members of the Lincoln Project [offered] jobs to young men in exchange for sex,” adding that “his wife is probably interested” to hear about the allegations.

Although Girdusky did not post screenshots of Weaver’s predatory actions himself, saying he “worked with journalists and reached out to victims asking for them to speak up because it was their story, not mine,” several others spoke up about what they experienced and heard.

Twitter user @JoshPri68522288 was one of the first to speak up, tweeting that “I know who did it, because they did it to me. It was John Weaver.”

@_liberalproject also said that “Weaver used to follow me when I used my real name on here. Out of the blue he DM’d being pushy with personal questions and trying to flirt with me. After I didn’t go along with it, he unfollowed me and never DM’d me since.”

News of the impending allegations was also retweeted by Donald Trump Jr.

The longest Twitter thread on the accusations came from journalist Scott Stedman, who started a Twitter thread that begins as follows: “I don’t want to feed into Don Jr’s nonsense but I do want to tell a story. I followed John Weaver when I started my Twitter account. We exchanged messages, I sent him my stories, chatted about Russia, etc. He wrote a blurb for my book. He offered me some sort of “joint venture” which I wasn’t interested in, so I didn’t respond to his calls.”

Stedman continues: “One day, he DM’d me and said he had ‘advice’. He then proceeded to tell me how ‘hot’ I looked and commented on my profile picture and my hair. He started calling me ‘my boy’. I found it deeply uncomfortable.”

What he said to me pales in comparison to others with whom Weaver communicated and countless others who have experienced much worse from people in power,” Stedman said.

And there could be much more where that came from…

Neither The Lincoln Project nor it’s leadership have publicly commented on the accusations yet, including Weaver himself.

Stay tuned as this story develops.
