“Oh, sure. Yeah,” said Christie. “…If you want my opinion, that’s my opinion. I think if inciting to insurrection isn’t, then I don’t know what it is.”
Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz has already weighed in and said that Trump’s language is protected speech and that impeaching him for language that the Supreme Court would likely protect sets a dangerous precedent.
