Supreme Court intervention threatens one of two impeachment articles
President Donald Trump received earth-shattering news from the Supreme Court last week puts a serious dampener on Democrats’ attempts to impeach and removal him.
One of the impeachment charges is called, “obstruction of Congress.” The only problem is that Trump did no such thing. All Trump did was, when presented with subpoenas, decided to instead appeal — going through the court system.
Democrats were furious. They know this impeachment is unserious and unpopular — so they want it over as soon as possible. They do not want Trump to go through the proper legal channels, potentially slowing the House impeachment process down by months.
So they charged him. But the problem with this is that the Supreme Court undermined the whole article of impeachment by deciding to hear Trump’s appeal.
Alan Dershowitz explained it on Fox News. “The Supreme Court of the United States absolutely pulled the rug out of part two of the impeachment referral by granting certiorari, by granting review in a case where Trump challenged a congressional subpoena, and the Supreme Court said, we are going to hear this case,” said Dershowitz.
By hearing the case, the Supreme Court made it clear that Trump had legal standing to challenge the subpoenas. And according to Dershowitz, this means the charge should be thrown out entirely. “So that charge, that ground of impeachment should be immediately removed by the House and not sent to the Senate,” Dershowitz concluded.
