Law scholar Alan Dershowitz strongly believes the Democrat-led impeachment of President Trump is “dangerous” to the integrity of the Constitution.

On Sunday, Derschowitz, who is also a member of President Trump’s legal team for the upcoming Senate trial, explained why the impeachment of Trump is actually the “greatest nightmare” of America’s Founding Fathers.

Alan Dershowitz pointed to Democrats who voted on “abuse of power” and “obstruction of Congress”, arguing that the charges filed by Democrats are not within the criteria for impeachment within the Constitution.

“The vote was to impeach on abuse of power, which is not within the Constitution criteria for impeachment and obstruction of Congress. Those are both the kinds of things that led [Alexander] Hamilton and [James] Madison– talk about [a] nightmare, to regard that as the greatest nightmare,” Dershowitz said on ABC’s “This Week”.

“Number one: giving Congress too much power to allow the president to serve at the will of Congress,” Dershowitz continued. “And number two, as Hamilton put it, ‘The greatest danger is turning impeachment into a question of who has the most votes in which House, and rather than having a consenses broad view of impeachable conduct.'” Continued Below

Constitutional scholar and George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley told lawmakers in December, during a House Judiciary impeachment inquiry hearing, that it would be an “abuse of their power” to impeach President Trump.

“I can’t emphasize this enough and I’ll say it just one more time: If you impeach a president–if you make a high crime and misdemeanor out of going to the courts; it is an abuse of power,” Turley said.

“It’s your abuse of power. You’re doing precisely what you’re criticizing the president for doing. We have a third branch that deals with conflicts at the other two branches. And what comes out of there, what you do with it, is the very definition of legitimacy,” he added. Video Below
