Ace of Diamonds: Allen Dershowitz, Trump Enabler to the End?

The Dershowitz Double Standard for Impeachment (one part bravado, two parts chutzpah, shaken, not stirred):

  • 1998: Dershowitz on the impeachment of Bill Clinton: “It certainly doesn’t have to be a crime if you have somebody who completely corrupts the Office of the President and who abuses trust and poses a great danger to our liberty, you don’t need a technical crime.  
  • 2020: Dershowitz on the first impeachment of Donald Trump: “And if a president does something which he believes will help him get elected in the public interest, that cannot be the kind of quid pro quo that results in impeachment.”
