Dershowitz Slams Feinstein Over Obstruction Argument: 'Doesn't Know What She's Talking About'

Quote
Monday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz batted down the merit of obstruction of justice charges aimed at President Donald Trump for what he said was exercising his constitutional power and authority regarding the firing of then-FBI Director James Comey and instructing the Department of Justice what to and not to investigate.

“If Congress were to ever charge him with obstruction of justice for exercising his constitutional authority under Article 2, we’d have a constitutional crisis,” he explained. “You cannot charge a president with obstruction of justice for exercising his constitutional power to fire Comey and his constitutional authority to tell the Justice Department who to investigate, who not to investigate. That’s what Thomas Jefferson did. That’s what Lincoln did. That’s what Roosevelt did. We have precedents that clearly establish that.”

Hell, he could have "ordered" Comey to drop any investigation on anyone or anything and that would be his Right under the Constitutional Powers given to a sitting President!

Obstruction of what?  What is the investigation again?

How exactly would justice be obstructed if firing the head of the FBI wouldn't stop an ongoing investigation?

For the Democrats, Laws only apply if they support the Marxist movement- otherwise, they're unconstitutional and possibly worse - racist, sexist, and violate the separation of church & state.
